Demonstration of Continuous Equipment Performance Monitoring

Mon, July 17, 2017

This effort extends diagnostic techniques on reciprocating compressor units including the gas compressor, main bearings, and ancillary equipment (e. g., turbocharger, aftercooler, pumps). In addition, additional combustion monitoring techniques are described that can be implemented on most existing mainline compressor units used in the industry. The report includes spreadsheet templates for fitting models for engine oil pressure and turbocharger expected speed.  The report is available to PRCI members at no cost and for sale to the public in the PRCI Store.
