Reciprocating compressors of various designs and applications are encountered nowadays throughout refining, petrochemical and process industries as well as in power generation and environmental engineering.
This course is designed to provide you with a complete understanding of construction details and functioning of reciprocating compressors. This understanding is a prerequisite for a successful operation of your plant and piping system.
The course includes extensive graphics, 3D animations and cross-sectional views to give you a virtual practical exposure on reciprocating compressors.
The objective of this course is threefold :
1. Break down for you all the reciprocating compressor operating principles into easily digestible concepts like gas compression, capacity control, pulsation control, compressor lubrication and cooling...
2. Illustrate through 3D animations and cross-sectional views the main compressor mechanical components, state their function and operating limits, like bearings, packings, crossheads, pistons, valves...
3. Provide guidelines and best practices for operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of reciprocating compressors in accordance with the API 618 standard
So with no further ado, check out the free preview videos and the curriculum of the course and we look forward to seeing you in the first section.
Hope to see you there
