Compressor design and economic calculation

New petrochemical, natural gas and refining plants are designed with ever-larger capacities, while investment budgets remain squeezed. Reciprocating compressors are key to the technical and financial performance of these new facilities, so poor design of compressor systems can make projects economically unfeasible.

In this webinar you will get an exclusive look at how to use eRecip to carry out lean sizing of reciprocating compressors and so reduce investment costs. We will use case studies to show why today’s operators prefer lean designs and how this both improves reliability and cuts energy consumption.

Traditional design methods leave some important questions unanswered. Will the compressor be limited to its current application? What will be the future cost of operation of compressor control as from start of run to end of run? eRecip lets you assess your options for multiple operating conditions and calculates the total cost over the compressor’s lifetime.

Join us for this exciting and informative webinar to find out how to make your compressor project economically viable.
