Many of the steps used in sizing estimates are also useful for checking bids or evaluating existing equipment. After compression duty has been sufficiently defined, the following steps provides relations used for the computation of centrifugal compressor with example to show how preliminary selections may be made by the project engineer Listed below are the fundamental parameters or conditions that have to be defined and before considering compressor sizing: Gas composition • Flow rate • Suction condition • Discharged condition

•

Gas composition: This has to do with details about the types of gas and its composition. It also includes gas molecular weight. Suction condition: This gives details parametric suction condition like the temperature and pressure at the inlet. Discharge condition: Details about discharged temperature and pressure and flow conditions are expected in the process information given. The following terms are to be calculated when sizing a centrifugal compressor: • • • • • • • Polytropic Heads Tip speed Shaft speed Gas Volume Discharge Temperature (if not provided) Isentropic exponent Shaft horse power

6) It has less operating attention. It’s efficiency is not higher compare to a well maintained other compressor example of such is reciprocating compressor.1 = 615. .Power required (Wp) = 609. construction. cost of fabrication. Disadvantages of Centrifugal compressor 1) 2) 3) Where much higher pressure ratio is required it is grossly not best suitable. It is not best suitable for lower capacity services. cost of maintenance.000 cfm to 150.000 cfm hence quite preferred where higher volumetric output is being sort for. 3) It has higher volumetric flow rate in the range of 1. it has been proven to have greater continuity of services dependable and reliable. 4) 5) Because of its wide range of application in the process industry. 7) Adaptability to high-speed low-maintenance-cost drivers.9 hp Advantages of Centrifugal compressor 1) Centrifugal compressor is known for its higher capacity/horsepower 2) It is quite simple and has appreciable size ratio hence does not require shaking force and massive foundation. Centrifugal compressor is relatively cheap in terms of energy.8 + 6.
