Why Compression Ratio Matters

One of the critical parameters in compressor design and selection is the compression ratio, which is the ratio of the absolute stage discharge pressure to the absolute stage suction pressure. Here’s how to calculate your compression ratio.

Demystifying Compressor Flow Terms, a 3-Part Series

When pumping liquids, common flow terms are used – such as gallons per minute, gallons per hour, barrels per day, and so on. Because liquids are considered incompressible, pressure corrections are rarely required for liquid flow terms.  We normally consider that the volumetric flow entering a pump remains essentially constant as it moves through a pump. However, when dealing with gases, due to their compressible nature, a different set of terms are required to define flow.  The purpose of this 3-part series of articles is to cover commonly used flow terms related to compressed gases.

Safety First! Valve Installation Tool for Top & Bottom Installation & Removal

According to safety experts, compressor valve installation and removal is a leading cause of workplace injuries in gas compression operations. Awkward angles, heavy parts, hot, greasy surfaces and dangerous pinch points combine to increase the risk of serious injury to extremities, as well as cause overexertion injuries from lifting, pushing and holding valves in place. These problems are magnified with larger size valves, cramped spaces, extreme weather conditions and poorly lit work areas.
