Introduction

Centrifugal Compressors play a very essential role in many petrochemical and industrial plants. Centrifugal compressors in general runs at very high speeds and are exposed to high temperature. The compressor operation is confined between the Surge and Stonewall limits. The compressor performance also is affected by the variation in operating conditions. Elevated temperature and large centrifugal stresses make the gas turbine operating under very critical conditions requires very complicated monitoring and protection systems. Accurate instrumentation, monitoring, troubleshooting and maintenance programs are essential for maintaining and increasing the available time of the machines. Understanding and learning Centrifugal compressors more deeply help smooth and free trouble operation.

This GLOMACS training course on Centrifugal Compressor will address the design, performance, operation limits, control system and the troubleshooting techniques of centrifugal compressors and the parameters affecting the above. 

This GLOMACS training course will highlight:

  • Description of the equipment's internal and external part and its function
  • Diagnosis and analysis of equipment Failures and troubleshooting
  • Maintenance strategies
  • Effective inspection, measurements and which parameter to test
  • Preventive and predictive maintenance methods
  • Analysis performances for vibration, oil analysis and bearing failure detection

Objectives

By the end of this GLOMACS training course, participants will be able to:

  • Familiarise different compressor designs
  • Learn how different design parameter affects the machines performance and operation
  • Familiarise the different types of gas compressors and their application
  • Deepen the understanding of the limits of the compressor operation
  • Read and calculate the performance curves of compressor
  • Familiarise with the control and protection systems of centrifugal compressor systems
  • Familiarise the start and shut down of the compressor properly
  • Recognize the essential of Compressors
  • Learn the latest techniques to compressor condition monitoring
  • Acquire the proactive techniques like alignment, balancing, vibration and oil analysis
  • Pick up methods of troubleshooting and maintaining
  • Highlight the importance of the maintenance planning

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Centrifugal Compressor training course will be a lively blend of presentations and discussions drawn from many years of operation and maintenance experience working around the world. Case studies and questions will be used throughout to keep the discussions on a very practical level, with attendees being encouraged to use examples from where they are familiar with, so that they may apply the techniques to their own work environmental.

Organisational Impact

This GLOMACS training course will help to:

  • Improve the equipment’s Reliability, Availability and Maintainability
  • Improve the operation strategies to face the equipment problem
  • Detect the operation problems early
  • Identify the failure early and more effectively
  • Become more proactive to Control the failure, Reduce the Risk
  • Optimize the preventive and predictive maintenance program
  • Use the organization resource effectively
  • Reduce the cost due to failure
  • Mitigate the failure consequences
  • Detect the problem early for better planning and schedule

Personal Impact

  • Increase the personal ability to understand the high-tech techniques for CO2 compression, and its requirements
  • Understand how much hard work needs to operate CO2 compressor
  • Become more proactive, learn the right Methods for operation and control
  • Knowledge on how to perform failure analysis
  • Help the maintenance staff to improve the maintenance and repair procedures
  • Select the suitable maintenance methodology fit to the business work system
  • Increase the talent to identify the operation or control failure
  • Detect the earl symptoms of failure
  • Increase his ability to diagnosis the different types of mal-functions or failure
