Compressor Station Vibration and the Impact on Performance, Cost and Reliability
October 29 @ 8:00 am - October 31 @ 5:00 pm
This workshop focuses on vibration issues affecting compressor stations, including piping systems. Participants will gain a hands-on understanding of vibration issues and solutions at the design stage, as well as during commissioning and troubleshooting. Discussion topics include the impact of equipment selection, operation, and piping layout on pulsation, vibration, and performance.
This course is recommended for technicians and engineers involved in compressor design or troubleshooting, including rotating specialists, design staff, and field engineers.
Using a series of interactive case studies, the class will role play and make decisions based on various real-world scenarios. The program incorporates detailed computer modeling to make the scenarios realistic by including actual pulsation and vibration outcomes.
Attendees will actively participate in designing pulsation control and identifying support locations using tools provided by the presenters. An overview of torsional vibration and its impact on the design process will also be provided.
Each participant will receive a comprehensive workbook, a valuable resource that will provide benefits long after the completion of the class. Breakfast, lunch, and refreshment breaks provided.
