JAtech services performs specialized analysis to measure the mechanical condition and performance of reciprocating compressors and cylinders.
The analyst measures:
- Pressures – head and crank ends of cylinders (if equipped with indicator valves)
- Pressures – suction and discharge nozzles (if equipped with indicator valves)
- Vibration – main crank bearings, cylinder heads, crossheads, valves
- Ultrasonic – cylinders and valves
- Temperatures – suction, discharge, valves
- Performance – horsepower, ring losses, valve losses, volumetric efficiencies
- Component condition – frame, bearings, rings, piston rods, connecting rods, crosshead, valves, unloaders, etc.
