  • Is an Ultra-high-speed Turbo Compressor the Right Compressor For Your Application?
    "The technical application is defined, the pressure rise and the mass flow are determined, but which compressor type is the right one for this application?" These or similar questions arise for many engineers and system application developers. This article provides an overview of available
  • Rotary Screw Compressor Winterizing Tips
    The oil flooded rotary screw is the most popular type of air compressor used by industrial plants. However, there is still a mystique about some aspects of this type of compressor. The company featured on our website at has repaired thousands of rotary screw airends. We wanted to gather ideas from
  • Improving Reciprocating Compressor Valve Life
    Compressor valves serves as check valves for the inlet and discharge passages of the cylinder and will open and close once for every revolution of the crankshaft. If the compressor is running at 500 rpm for 24 hours a day, the valves will open and close 720,000 times every day! Valves have
  • Air Compressor Monitoring with an Intelligent Data Logger
    A company specializing in compressor installation required a small but powerful data logger to measure the on time to off time and current consumption of a wide range of compressor models. This system needed to be easy for field personnel to operate with equally simple software. CAS DataLoggers
  • 100HE TM Abradable Coatings for Compressor Cases
    Progressive is working with turbine engine MRO facilities in an effort to improve the productivity and reduce the costs of applying abradable coatings on turbine engine compressor components.
  • Eliminate Degassing When Measuring Viscosity of Compressor Oils
    Compressor oils can create unique challenges when trying to measure viscosity. Dissolved gases from refrigerants, in particular, tend to bubble out when these oils are measured using traditional viscometers. This can create errors in the measurement, typically causing readings to be much lower than
  • Gas Leak Detector-Application Note: COMPRESSOR STATIONS
    At a compressor or booster station, two main. processes typically take place: gas compression,. which is performed in order to ensure that the. natural gas flowing through a pipeline remains. pressurized, and gas chilling and cooling, which. reduces the gas temperature. Both processes. subject gas
  • Applying Variable Speed Compressors in Multiple Compressor Applications
    Variable speed control for all types of industrial equipment is now readily available on the market with competitive pricing to non-variable speed controlled alternatives, including in the air compressor industry. With the advent of prescriptive rebate programs for variable speed compressors
  • PT 102: Low Frequency Vibration Measurements on a Compressor Gear Set
    The gear set on a critical turbo-compressor was monitored with a standard industrial accelerometer at very low frequencies. Severe vibrations at the hunting tooth frequency were found to be amplified by a compressor surge modulation. Diagnostic evaluation and repair effectively eliminated the surge
