Centrifugal Pipeline Compressor Technology Evolution: High-Pressure Pipeline Applications
Centrifugal gas pipeline compressors have benefited from technology improvements made in the multistage process gas compressors that enable safe and reliable operation on high-pressure gas pipelines. High pressure gas pipelines are considered to be those pipelines that operate above a pressure of 2000 psi. This paper describes technology improvements in the areas of aerodynamics, rotordynamics, and acoustics, as applied to single and multistage pipeline compressors and provides several examples and experiences to date. The use of advanced analytic tools and application of magnetic bearings and dry gas seals are also discussed.
