Decrease vibration in piping with reciprocating compressors
Case study identifies problems in new compression unit
In the hydrocarbon processing industry, piping systems are connected to reciprocating compressors. These systems are subjected to vibrations; in many cases, the piping experiences high vibration levels due to poor design. Over the service life of the piping, many stress incidents can lead to failures such as piping components, branch connections especially small bore lines, etc. High vibration levels should be kept within the permissible limit by proper analysis approach during the initial design phase.
