COMPRESSOR STATION VIBRATION and the IMPACT ON
COST, PERFORMANCE & RELIABILITY
April 17 - 19, 2013
Sheraton Station Square Hotel, Pittsburgh, PA
This Gas Machinery Research Council (GMRC) class will provide attendees with the knowledge and tools to better identify, specify, address and resolve vibration issues affecting reciprocating compressors. The impact of equipment selection, operation and piping layout on pulsation, vibration and performance will be discussed. Attendees will actively participate in designing pulsation control and identifying support locations using tools provided by the presenters. An overview of torsional vibration and its impact on the design process will also be provided. The course draws on expertise, experience and best practices from senior industry experts
This will be an interactive class. Case studies incorporating actual compressor stations will be utilized, using different scenarios for the class to role play – and make decisions. The program will also include detailed computer modeling to make the scenarios realistic – with actual pulsation and vibration outcomes.
