ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA General Requirements 6.3 All reciprocating compressor cylinders operating at or within 5°C of the saturated gas conditions at the compressor cylinder suction pressure shall take suction from a suction knock out drum. The knock out drum shall include the following: 1. An all stainless steel demister pad designed to limit liquid droplets at the outlet to 10 microns. 2. The knock out drum have automatic liquid drains and separate high and high-high level sensing instruments for alarm and shutdown. (NOTE: The automatic and manual liquid drains shall incorporate stainless steel internals. ) Pressure relief valves shall be installed on all knock out drums in accordance with SAES-J-600. The extension piping (inlet pipe) of the relief valve shall be kept to the minimum length possible, and provided with welded gussets at the attachment to the vessel. Suction piping downstream of the suction drums and pulsation suppression devices of compressors operating at or within 5°C of the gas saturation temperature shall be heat traced, either with steam, electrically or a heat transfer fluid, and insulated to ensure that condensation of liquids does not occur. All piping, piping components and pulsation suppression equipment between the compressor cylinder suction flange up to and including the cylinder suction block valve shall be rated for the compressor discharge pressure. All process gas compressors shall be provided with vent piping on the suction and discharge sides of pulsation suppression devices, as close as practical to the cylinder nozzle connections. Vents (As described in item A2 above) shall be permanently connected to the flare header and shall include a check valve. A permanent spool-mounted stainless steel conical strainer 920 micron (20 mesh) of adequate strength shall be installed in all compressor cylinder inlet lines.. Note:Strainers in accordance with Standard Drawing AB-036764 may be used. A differential pressure gauge shall be installed to measure the differential pressure across the strainer
