AUXILIARY EQUIPMENT:

CENTRIFUGAL:

-Except for lighter than air gases, trenches, pits and similar gas traps should be avoided within gas Compressor House. This will eliminate chances of suffocation or explosion risk due to accumulation of heavy gases in pits. -The general arrangement of compressor house shall consider the vendor drawings and vendor recommendation, if any, for space and location of auxiliary units. -For compressor house where a number of installations from multiple vendors are to be accommodated, a thorough discussion should be held among the engineers of Piping, Process and Civil discipline to finalize the detail plot plan of the unit.

RECIPROCATING COMPRESSORS -The pulsation dampeners are used to eliminate pulsation in suction and discharge piping and to separate the source of vibration from the piping system. -The piping shall remain clear of the cylinders and the withdrawal space at cylinder heads. CENTRIFUGAL COMPRESSORS -The general considerations for centrifugal compressor layout is same as the reciprocating compressor, exception being that for centrifugal compressor, the pipeline size is larger, temperatures can often be higher and nozzle loadings on compressor casing is lower. -The centrifugal compressor inside a building normally has foundations separate from the building foundation. -Suction piping to centrifugal compressors should be designed to allow sufficient straight length i.e. 3 D minimum of pipe immediately ahead of suction nozzle, to allow dissipation of undesirable flow distortion caused by elbows, valves, or other fittings upstream and velocity in line.
