Descriptive Comparison Between A Centrifugal And A Reciprocating Compressor




Descriptive Comparison Between A Centrifugal And A Reciprocating Compressor Dear All,

It has been really a long time since I have posted a new entry. I was preoccupied with work and also did not find the right topic to post.

My fascination with compressors continues. I was reading some articles on compressors and this one particular article struck me to be quite interesting. The article gives a descriptive comparison between a centrifugal and reciprocating compressor. The article is titled as: "What's Correct for My Application - A Centrifugal or Reciprocating Compressor" authored by very distinguished compression equipment specialists: Paul Gallick - Senior Applications Engineer, Elliott Company; Greg Phillipi and Benjamin F. Williams of Ariel Corporation. The link for the article is given below:

http://turbolab.tamu.../15-GALLICK.pdf

The article provides descriptive comparison of a centrifugal compressor and reciprocating compressor on various parameters such as flow, pressure, efficiency, discharge temperature, materials of construction, cost etc.

I have presented the contents of the aforementioned article in an excel workbook template with minor changes here and there, based on various other sources and my own understanding of compressors. The idea was to make this comparison more compact and easier on the eye for engineers who would be interested to enhance their understanding of compressors.

The excel workbook is attached with this blog entry. I look forward to comments on the compilation I have done.

Regards,
Ankur
