Reciprocating Compressor Analysis

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

To analyze:

  • Performance – horsepower, ring losses, valve losses, volumetric efficiencies
  • Component condition – frame, bearings, rings, piston rods, connecting rods, crosshead, valves, unloaders, etc.
