Design of Centrifugal Compressor Piping and Appurtenances excluding Anti-Surge Systems

Centrifugal compressors are widely used in process plants to compress gases. Centrifugal Compressors, being rotary equipment, are highly sensitive and prone to vibration. So, the connected piping system must be

Shaft Alignment Methodology for Compressor and Driver

Before connecting the process gas pipings with compressor nozzles, the shaft alignment work for the compressors and driver shall be carried out to ensure their concentricity. This concentricity between shaft and driver is very important for proper smooth working of the compressors. This article will explain the alignment methodology in brief.
