Why Choose this Petroknowledge Training Course?

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 PetroKnowledge training course will address the design, performance, operation limits, control system and the troubleshooting techniques of centrifugal compressors and the parameters affecting the above.
