Understanding Rod Reversal in Reciprocating Compressors
Thorough knowledge of the dynamic forces developed during the operation of reciprocating compressors is critical to the efficient and safe function of the machinery. Understanding the role that rod reversal plays on the crosshead and crosshead pin assembly can prevent catastrophic failure resulting from seizure of the pin due to inadequate lubrication. The guidelines presented here give insight into the factors leading to rod reversal in both single-acting and double-acting compressors using compressor manufacturersÂ’ published information
