Centrifugal Compressors for Oxygen Service

178,00 €


This publication has made a significant contribution to the safe compression of oxygen primarily because the manufacturers and users have shared their philosophies and experiences. It is recognized by the Working Group members that the feedback of operating experiences makes a powerful contribution to safe operation and design. The use of axial compressors in oxygen service is not covered by this publication. The purpose of this publication is to provide guidance on the design, manufacture, installation, operation, and maintenance of centrifugal oxygen compressors, thereby safeguarding personnel and equipment. Fire in an oxygen compressor can be caused by a variety of reasons, which include mechanical deterioration resulting in excessive vibration and/or loss of running clearances within the compressor, ingress of oil (for example, through the seal system), foreign bodies passing through the machine, and surge. The safe and reliable compression of oxygen using centrifugal compressors can only be achieved by the successful combination of many factors discussed in this publication.
