Compressor Frame Overview


All Cameron Compression compressor frames are engineered for reliable, continuous, heavy duty and trouble free operation. These ruggedly constructed, balanced-opposed type compressor frames are built with high speed, high precision, high quality and field proven standards of CCSs Superior compressors. Easy access to all wearing parts means simplified

maintenance and dependable service. The balance-opposed design, with two crank throws separated by a crank cheek, is a modern standard for reciprocating compressor frames. This manual describes the MH/WH series compressor frame. These compressor frames are designed for oil and gas production, gas transmission, process, cogeneration and power generation applications. Precision designed main and connecting rod bearings are thick walled, steel backed and split. The crankshaft is removed through the top of the base without disturbing the cylinders. The lube oil pump and the force feed lubricator are gear or shaft driven and mounted on the auxiliary end cover. Either may be maintained independently. Lube Oil is drawn from the sump through a strainer that protects the lube oil pump. A fullflow lube oil filter with a differential pressure indicator capable of identifying a plugged filter, protects all compressor frame running parts. Although piston and rod lengths may vary according to the stroke and model, all cylinders will fit interchangeably on the standard crosshead guide. Careful attention is given to the cooling of cylinders designed for a 1.5:1 to 5:1 pressure ratio. Variable Volume Pockets are furnished as standard equipment on all cylinder classes, except the model #602 through #605 forged steel cylinders. On these cylinders, other methods of adding clearance, such as fixed heads, fixed volume heads, or valves spacers can be furnished when required. Figure 1-4 MH/WH Cylinder Head Options

Compressor System Vibration


Due to the nature of the horizontal compressor design, the reciprocating weights generate some vibrational forces. Proper balance of reciprocating weights on the opposing throws will minimize this effect. Compressor systems (including skids, bottles, piping, valves, and other components) are subject to vibration. The design goal is to have a system free of vibrations in a normal operating speed range. Operators and maintenance personnel should be alert for excessive system vibration that can cause damage to equipment. Normally, clamping or adding additional support to a vibrating component will raise natural frequency and eliminate the vibration problem. Compressor cylinder mounting can be stiffened, if necessary, by attaching additional supports directly to the cylinder from the skid or foundation. Most cylinders now have a machined boss with drilled and tapped holes for attaching an outboard cylinder vibration suppression device. This is the preferred method of attachment.

Balancing Compressor Frames

DANGER
Failure to verify and correct compressor balance can result in excessive mechanical vibration, frame cracking, piping vibration, foundation cracking and other damage to the compressor. It also creates a potentially unsafe operating condition for the operator.

Cameron Compression manufactures balanced opposed reciprocating compressor having one to six cylinders. The cylinders range in size from 3 to 26.5 inches (76 mm to 673 mm) in diameter and may be mounted on the frames in various combinations.

CAUTION
Balancing of the unit is accomplished by using both an appropriate weight crosshead assembly and piston rod jam nut (balance nut) The maximum allowable variation is two pounds (0.90 kg) on the reciprocating weights and one pound (0.45 kg) on the connecting rod weights, but not to exceed one pound net-for each pair of opposing throws.

Since the goal is to produce a balanced opposed compressor, it is necessary to make the reciprocating weight on each pair of opposing throws approximately the same.This is quite a task, in view of the large number of cylinder sizes and throw location combinations that are possible, and because each piston and rod assembly (piston, rings, piston rod and cap screws) has a certain combined weight which will probably be different from the weight of the piston assembly that it will oppose.

The crosshead assembly consists of a pair of shoes, the bolts and nuts to attach the shoes, and the crosshead. There are two different weight crossheads available.

CAUTION
When replacing crossheads, connecting rods, pistons, or changing piston ring material, the new parts should be weighed, in order to reaffirm the actual unit balance.

Also available are balance nuts in 2.5 and 5-pound increments. Consult an Authorized Unit Distributor for details concerning the use of the special weight nuts. In addition to the above mentioned balance parts, the connecting rod weight is also involved in the balance. Connecting rods vary in weight and when the units are assembled at the factory, care is taken to select the connecting rods so that the weight variation for opposing throws does not exceed 1 pound (0.45 kg).Every effort should be made to achieve as near equal balance between opposite throws as possible.

This does not apply to adjacent throw pairs, which sometimes vary by 100 pounds (45 kg) or more, depending on cylinder sizes.

The estimated balance for the original assembly of a compressor is recorded on the ComVent Fill Plug pressor Torsional and Balance Data Sheet. A copy of the data sheet for each compressor is included in the Operation Manual, and should Upper be referred to in the event a change which . Plug would affect the balance is contemplated.The . weight of parts can vary from the estiactual mated weights. Also, when replacing crossheads, connecting rods, pistons, or changing Drain Plug piston ring material, the new parts should be weighed, in order to reaffirm the actual unit balance.

Temporary Shipping Plugs in Compressor Equipment1


Small diameter threaded connections located on compressor frames, cylinders are components are often sealed at the factory with temporary plastic plugs. These temporary plugs protect the equipment from dirt, water and other contaminants during shipping Stainless steel plugs are recand storage. The type of plug used is usually a push-in insert that ommended. Always verify can be easily identified, even when painted. A threaded plastic pipe that all temporary plastic plugs are replaced before plug may occasionally be found on older compressor cylinders. using the compressor equipPainted threaded plastic pipe plugs may look like painted steel pipe ment. plugs. Any Plastic plugs found must be replaced. The equipment installer must determine the purpose of all empty ports (i.e. vent, lubricator oil connection, cooling water connection, etc.) and insure each port is properly connected to its specific application or plugged.

DANGER

Ports that are not used must be filled with a properly installed steel plug. If the existing plugs are painted, scrape off enough paint to verify that the plug is made of steel and not plastic. If any plug is in question, replace it. Pressurizing the compressor equipment while temporary plugs are in place may result in serious injury or death and may damage the equipment.

Compressor Frame Crankcase Rapid Pressure Relief Valves2


Cameron Compression recommends the installation of Bicera crankcase rapid pressure relief valve. These valves protect the compressor frame from excessive pressure.

Superior Compressors

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual

The Bicera valve has a 120o exhaust port opening through which pressure is vented. Due to the content and high temperature of the vented gas, proper orientation of the exhaust port is critical for a safe operating environment. Vented gas could be dangerous to both operator and equipment. The 120o exhaust port must always be directed towards the drive end of the compressor frame. It must never be directed toward an area where the vented gases could come into contact with operators or other personnel.

General Precautions
Attach a DO NOT OPERATE or similar warning tag to the start button or controls before performing maintenance or repairing the equipment. When appropriate, attach tags at the equipment and at each operator's position and disconnect starting controls. Be absolutely sure the remote starting system is disabled and/or disconnect the starting system on the equipment being serviced. Use caution when removing cover plates. Gradually loosen (do not remove) the last two bolts or nuts located at opposite ends of the cover or device. Pry cover loose to relieve any spring or other pressure, before removing the last bolts or nuts.

DANGER

If Poisonous or suffocating gases are being compressed, follow all plant safety procedures prior to and during maintenance on any gas equipment or piping to avoid injury or death due to inhalation of such substances.

It is in the best interest of everyone involved in operation and maintenance of the equipment to observe these additional precautions: Always wear safety glasses or goggles, steel-toe safety shoes, hearing protection and protective head gear. Additional equipment may be required by the job conditions. Do not wear loose clothing, neckties, or jewelry that can catch on controls or other parts of the moving equipment. Keep long hair tied back. Make certain all protective guards and covers are secured in place. Use only non-flammable, non-toxic cleaning solvents. Never use gasoline or other flammable products for cleaning purposes. Use fans, blowers, etc. during maintenance and clean-up work in enclosed areas to remove fumes released by cleaning solvents and vented gases. Never put maintenance fluids into glass containers; since glass containers break. Report all needed repairs. When operating this equipment in an enclosed area, vent the exhaust to the outside. Keep the area around the unit clean and orderly with ample space to walk safely around the unit. Clean up spills and leaks quickly to prevent accidents caused by slipping and falling.

General Maintenance Precautions


Unless instructed differently, perform all maintenance as follows: Follow all safety and operating procedures put in place by the company that owns and operates the equipment. STOP the equipment. Do not attempt any repairs or adjustments to the equipment while it is running. Ensure the protective locks or controls are in the applied position. Make sure all protective guards and covers are installed, if equipment must be started to make adjustments or checks. To help prevent an accident caused by parts in rotation, work carefully around them. Make sure all nearby personnel are aware of the start-up and do not allow unauthorized personnel on or around the equipment when maintenance or repair is being performed. Do not disable or bypass automatic alarm/shutoff circuits. They are provided to prevent personal injury and equipment damage. Before replacing any studs, measure the stud's height from the machined surface and install the replacement stud to the identical height.

Compressor System Maintenance Precautions


Suction and discharge block valves must be closed to prevent gas from flowing into the compressor system during maintenance. Vent all gas pressure from the compressor system and know the piping system associated with the compressor. Open discharge blowdown and/or bypass valves to vent into the atmosphere. Be sure to allow the compressor system to cool for at least 15 minutes before opening suction or interstage vents. Air may be drawn into the system if a vacuum exists. This can create an explosive mixture. Check local or panel pressure gauges for a zero reading before removing any gas pressure components such as valves, valve caps, or cylinder heads. Unloader control pressure is typically not shown on gauges. Carefully vent unloader control pressure lines by loosening the control line tubing fitting. Remove manual barring devices if used during maintenance before starting the equipment. Lock out starting devices and controls

Pressurized Air and Water Precautions


Pressurized air and water can cause debris and/or hot water to be blown and could result in personal injury. When using pressurized air or water for cleaning, always wear eye/face protection and protective clothing and shoes. Cameron Compression recommends that the maximum air pressure applied in this type of application must be below 200 kPa (30 psi) for cleaning purposes.

Fluid Precautions
Always use a board or cardboard when checking for a leak. Escaping fluid under pressure (even a pinhole size leak) can penetrate body tissue, causing serious injury or possible death. If fluid is injected into your skin, a doctor familiar with this type of injury must treat it immediately.

Asbestos Precautions
Cameron Compression equipment and replacement parts shipped from the factory are asbestos free. Cameron Compression recommends the use of ONLY genuine Superior parts. If any replacement parts containing asbestos are used, the following guidelines should be used in handling these parts and asbestos debris. Caution should be used to avoid breathing dust when handling components containing asbestos fibers. If this dust is inhaled, it can be hazardous to your health. The asbestos used in components is usually bound in a resin or sealed in some way. Normal handling is not hazardous as long as airborne asbestos dust is not generated. If dust, which may contain asbestos, is present, there are several common sense guidelines that should be followed. Never use compressed air for cleaning. Avoid areas where airborne asbestos particles may be present. Avoid brushing or grinding of asbestos containing materials. For clean up, use wet methods or a vacuum equipped with a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. Use exhaust ventilation on permanent machining jobs. Wear an approved respirator. Comply with applicable rules and regulations for the work place. (i.e. U.S.A. OSHA requirements 29 CFR 1910.1001). Follow environmental rules and regulations for disposal of asbestos.

Pipes, Connectors, Fittings, Lines, Tubes and Hoses


Do not bend or strike any high-pressure connection (i.e. pipes, fittings, connectors, lines, tubes or hoses). Do not install bent or damaged pipes, connectors, lines, tubes or hoses. Repair any loose or damaged fuel and oil pipes, fittings, connectors, lines, tubes or hoses. Leaks can cause fires.

Section 2: Safety Precations and Guidelines Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-10/16/06

Page 2-9

Inspect all pipes, fittings, connectors, lines, tubes and hoses carefully. Do not use your bare hands to check for leaks. Tighten all connections to the recommended torque (Section 5). Check for the following: End fittings damaged, leaking or displaced. Outer coverings chafed or cut and wire reinforcing exposed. Outer covering ballooning locally. Evidence of kinking or crushing. Armoring embedded in the outer cover.

Burn Precautions
Do not touch any part of operating equipment. Allow the equipment to cool before any repair or maintenance is performed on the equipment. Make sure that all clamps, guards and heat shields are installed correctly to prevent vibration, rubbing against other parts and excessive heat during operation. Relieve all pressure in air, oil, fuel or cooling systems before any lines, fittings or related items are disconnected or removed.

Coolant Precautions
Remove the cooling system filler cap slowly to relieve pressure. Use caution when removing vent release valve, grease fittings, pressure taps, breathers or drain plugs. Hold a cloth over the cap or plug to prevent being sprayed or splashed by liquids under pressure. At operating conditions, the equipment coolant is hot and under pressure. The cooling system and all lines to heaters or the equipment contain hot water. When pressure is relieved rapidly, this hot water can turn into steam. Allow cooling system components to cool before draining. Any contact with hot water or steam can cause severe burns. Check the coolant level only after the equipment has been stopped and the filler cap is cool enough to remove with your bare hand. Cooling system additive (conditioner) contains alkali. To prevent personal injury, avoid contact with the skin and eyes and do not drink. (Remember: Antifreeze/glycol solutions, as well as most lubricants, are flammable.)

Oil Precautions
Hot oil and components can cause personal injury. Do not allow hot oil or components to contact the skin.

Fire and Explosion Precautions


A flash fire may result in personal injury if crankcase covers are removed within 15 minutes after an emergency shutdown. Fire may result from lubricating oil or fuel sprayed on hot surfaces causing personal injury and property damage. Inspect all lines and tubes for wear or deterioration. They must be routed, supported or clamped securely. Tighten all connections to the recommended torque (Section 7). Leaks can cause fires.

Crushing or Cutting Precautions


Wear protective glasses when striking objects to avoid injury to your eyes. Chips or other debris can fly off objects when struck. Take care to insure no one can be injured by flying debris before striking any object.

Noise Precautions
The sound level of the compressor while it is operating will exceed 80 dB, therefore, hearing protection will be required in its presence. The system integrator needs to perform a noise survey of the complete package to identify the actual sound levels of the machine in its operating environment.

Mounting and Dismounting Precautions


Do not climb on, or jump off, the equipment or stand on components that cannot support your weight. When possible use platform steps and hand holds (if equipped) when mounting and dismounting. Clean steps, handouts and platform areas of the equipment you will be working on or around. Always wear protective head gear when working on the compressor package.

Section 3 Lubrication And Cooling


The complete lubrication system of the compressor is divided into two parts, of equal importance: 1.) The system that provides lubrication to the frame running parts (see the compressor Frame Technical Data Book). 2.) The system that provides lubrication for the cylinders and packing. Both systems can use oil from the frame sump. However; if required, the cylinder system may use oil from an external tank. (This is especially done when the oil for cylinder and packing system is different type compared to the frame oil).

Compressor Frame Lubrication:


A gear driven lubricating pump is mounted on the auxiliary end of the frame. The pump delivers the oil from the frame sump to the bearings, connecting rods and the crosshead guides. An adjustable pressure relief valve is installed in the delivery cavity of the frame for cold start protection. An off-mounted shell and tube type oil cooler is provided with connections for water inlet and outlet. Other features include a connection port for low oil pressure shutdown switch. An oil level sight gage with low oil indicator is installed on the frame. Frame Lubrication Specifications: A good mineral oil of recommended viscosity, which provides resistance to oxidation, and corrosion is generally suitable for frame lubrication. A detergent oil if readily available may also be used. To assure oil suitably, always use a reliable and known brand. Cameron Compression does not endorse particular brands of oils and does not guarantee the quality or performance of lubricating oils. Satisfactory oil quality is the responsibility of the refiner, blender or re-brander. The responsibility for selecting the proper lubricant falls on the user. Use only products with field proven reliability and merit. Using known and reputed products will provide the best assurance for achieving effective lubrication. Use of such products should always follow the manufacturers recommendation. Do not permit your compressor to be used as an experimental unit for trying out new or questionable lubricants. Compressor design, operating conditions, and the gases being handled all have a significant effect on how well a lubricant performs in the given application. The following will assist users in selecting the proper lubricant for each application. The lubrication of Superior Compressors requires the use of premium quality, lubricating oils designed for heavy duty compressor service. In addition to the above requirement, the frame lubricant must be capable of operating with the type of gas being handled by the compressor cylinders. For most sweet natural gases and allied gas services, a lubricating oil with the minimum quantities specified in ES1002 (see

Section 3: Lubrication and Cooling Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

10/16/06

Page 3-1

Table 3-1 & 3-2) will be suitable. In applications where the compressor cylinders are handling corrosive gases such as H2S or CO2, a lubricant with a higher TBN or method for adequate retention of the original TBN is recommended for service in the frame.

General Specifications
The general specification for lubricating oil for use in Superior compressor frames is as follows: Table 3-1 General Specifications
Specification Viscosity: cSt @ 100oC Viscosity: cSt @ 40oC Viscosity Index Flash Point Pour Point Range 12.5 to 16.3 204 Maximum 70 Minimum 400o F (204oC) Minimum 15oF (-9oC) Maximum Test Procedure ASTM D 445 ASTM D 445 ASTM D 2270 ASTM D 92 ASTM D 97

Table 3-2 Viscosity Information-this information is equivalent to the ranges above and provided for information only
Specification Viscosity: SUS @ 210oF Viscosity: SUS @ 100oF Range 75 to 85 1100 Maximum Test Procedure ASTM D 88 ASTM D 88

Lubrication System Maintenance


The compressor oil and filters should be changed after the first 500 hours on a new or overhauled compressor. After the first oil change, the oil and filters should be changed every 2000 hours. Cameron Compression strongly recommends that customers use a laboratory analysis program to ensure proper lubricant performance. An experienced, reputable lab should be used and results should be carefully analyzed and trended. Regular monitoring of the crankcase oil condition can help establish oil change out periods for a specific unit. Oil condition and trace metal element trends can be effective diagnostic and preventive maintenance tools.

CAUTION
Low lube oil pressure alarm and shut down device(s) must monitor compressor frames lube oil pressure down stream of the compressor frames lube oil filter, recommended location is at driver end of lube oil header when possible.

LOW PRESSURE SHUTDOWN

Figure 3-3 The compressor frame lubrication system consists of a gear driven pump, pressure relief valve, check valves, oil cooler and oil filter. This Figure illustrates the lubrication oil system flow.

Compressor Cylinder and Packing Lubrication:


The cylinder lubrication system consists of a forced-feed lubricator and distribution block system that provides lubrication for cylinder walls and piston rod packing.

Compressor design, operating conditions, and the gases being handled all have a significant affect on how well a lubricant performs in the given application. Because of a variety of gases and operating conditions encountered by Superior compressor cylinders, the lubricant must be selected with the proper characteristics suitable for the application involved. In all applications, the oil used for compressor cylinders should have the following qualities: Good wetting ability High film strength Good chemical stability Clean and refined Unless the service uses Hydrogen Sulfide, oxidation and corrosion prohibitors are not required, but may be beneficial. Pour point must be equal to gas suction pressure minus15oF-20oF (8oC-11oC). Good resistance to carbon deposits and sludge formation. If any carbon is formed, it should be the soft, loose and flaky type. Minimum flash point is 400oF (204oC).

Viscosity Requirements
The viscosity of the oil should be selected on the basis of operating pressure conditions of the cylinder. For multi-stage applications, the viscosity required for the highest pressure cylinder can also be used in lower pressure cylinders. The viscosities listed in Table 3-4 are the suggested minimum requirements. These values will be adequate for most oils. However, oils of the same viscosity may not necessarily have identical lubricating qualities. Periodic examination of the cylinder bores during the first few weeks of operation is recommended to assure that lubrication is adequate.

Application Requirements
Many applications require special attention in addition to that given to most natural gas and similar services. The process in which a gas is being utilized will often influence the lubricating oil selected. The following recommendations will provide basic guidelines in selecting the proper lubricant for these special applications. Final selection should be made only after consultation with an Authorized Unit Distributor and the desired oil supplier: Table 3-5 Minimum Qualities of a Compressor Cylinder Lubrication
Service Wet Air High Pressure (PSIG) High Discharge Temperatures(350o-375o) Natural Gases, Methane, Ethane Natural Gases Saturated With Water and/or Wet With Higher Ended Hydrocarbons Butane, Propane, Ethylene, Carbon Dioxide Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Helium, Carbon Monoxide, Exhaust Gas, Ammonia Synthesis Ammonia Hydrogen Sulfide Recommendations Requires compounding with 3% to 5% acid less tallow or other suitable fatty oils. Increase supply over normal. Use minimum viscosity listed in Table 3-4, plus 3% to 5% compounding with tallow if gas is wet. Contact A CES Authorized Unit Distributor. Use viscosity data in Table 3-4 and 3% to 5% compounding with tallow if the gas is wet and/or saturated. Requires compounding with 3% to 5% acid less tallow or other suitable fatty oils. Increase supply over normal. These gases are dilutents of oil. Use the next higher viscosity over Table 3-4 recommendations. Increase supply quantities over normal. Lubricant must be dry. There are inert gases relative to lubricating oils. Use the recommendations in Table 3-4. Use a mixed base or napthentic straight mineral oil. Use dry, compounded, straight mineral oil. 3% to 8% compounding with acid less tallow and addition of corrosion and oxidation inhibitors is required. Viscosity as recommended in Table 3-4.

Lubrication Rate

IT IS IMPORTANT that during start up safe and ample lubrication The lubrication rate should be provided. This is accomplished by properly adjusting the for break-in should be force feed lubricator pump(s). Observe the detailed instructions, double that for norgiven in Section 6, when first starting up the compressor. With all mal operation. lubricator pumps set at full stroke, bring the cylinder pressure up slowly until the unit is running at full rated speed and load. Watch for any signs of malfunction. After the first 48 hours at full load, the lubrication rate should be gradually reduced to the amount necessary for correct lubrication. Adjustment should be made slowly, a little each day, and should take several days to accomplish. Experience has shown that the quantity of the oil required to properly lubricate compressor cylinders is dependent upon bore diameter, stroke, and speed. For the Superior compressors 1/5 (0.2) pint per day for each inch of cylinder bore diameter has normally proven to be an adequate quantity. The piston rod and packing is considered as a separate cylinder but with double the lubrication rate required. Packings then require 2/5 (0.4) pints per day for each inch of rod diameter. Minimum should be 0.45 pints per day per packing. See Figure 3-6 for an example of a force feed lubricator. A quantity of 1/5 (0.2) pint per inch of cylinder bore is equivalent to one drop per minute per inch of bore for a very heavy oil and ranges up to two drops per minute per inch of bore for very light oils. See section 6-2 thru 6-3 for information on the sight glass oil level. The gas being compressed, its cleanliness and tendencies to act as an oil dilutent, and the type of the oil being used all influence the lubrication rate required. Many applications may require more or less than the calculated feed rates. To assure that adequate lubrication is being achieved, a periodic visual inspection of the cylinder bore and piston rod are recommended. Initial setting and adjustments to the feed rate should also be accomplished on a 24-hour basis since the drop size varies with the viscosity of the oil.

Table 3-7 is an example of the calculations for determining the lubrication rate for a 2-throw compressor frame with one (1) 10 bore diameter cylinder and one (1) 20 bore diameter cylinder operating at 1200 RPMs: Over-lubrication can be just as harmful as under-lubrication. Excess lubrication can cause valve deposits, valve failures, contamination of the gas stream, and other down-stream equipment.

The regulator is not designed to make large quantities of oil in a short time period, such as refilling the crankcase after oil or filter changes.Its function is to compensate for small losses that occur during normal operation.

Lubrication Rate For the 20 Cylinder 1 packing X 2.5 X 0.4 pints/day = 1.0 pints/day or 10 drops/minute PLUS EQUALS 20 X 0.2 pints/day = 4 pints/day or 40 drops/minute 5.0 pints/day or 50 drop/minute

Total Lubrication Rate 3.0 pints/day or 30 drops/minute for the 10 bore diameter cylinder PLUS 5.0 pints/day or 50 drops/minute for the 20 bore diameter cylinder EQUALS 8.0 pints/day or 80 drops/minute

Synthetic Lubricants
Synthetic lubricants have higher flash points than conventional lubricants. This makes them highly desirable from a safety and fire reduction standpoint. However, synthetics impose problems which are usually not associated with natural mineral oils. They dissolve paints, are corrosive to common bearing materials such as lead and tin, and have low viscosity indexes. For these reasons, when synthetics are considered for use in compressor cylinders or frames, consult an Authorized Unit Distributor.

Multi-Grade Lubricants
Multi-grade oils provide the same protection as heavier single grade oils and do not put undue stresses on the compressor cylinder lubrication system. However, all multi-grade oils do not provide the same protection. For this reason, if a multi-grade oils is being considered for use a a cylinder lubricant, consult an Authorized Unit Distributor.

Section 3: Lubrication and Cooling Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

10/16/06

Page 3-7

Additional Recommendations
For wet and saturated gas conditions and 0-1000 PSIG, use a minimum viscosity of 85 SUS at 210oF with 3% to 8% compounding with acid less tallow, or two grades heavier than normally used for the pressure conditions involved. For heavy hydrocarbon and sour gases, use the next higher viscosity as shown in Table 3-4, with a minimum of 85 SUS at 210oF. For refrigeration service, use the highest possible viscosity that should be used and still retain the pour point 15oF below gas suction temperature. For chemically active gases, consult an Authorized Unit Distributor. Whenever there is any question as to viscosity selection, always use the heavier oil. For oil viscosities over 100 SUS at 210oF, take measures to maintain lubrication pump inlet temperatures at or above 120oF.

Pump Per Point System


If a cylinder has more than one feed point, and more than one pump, the requirements for lubrication must be split evenly. On a normal force feed lubricator (Figure 3-6), the proper proportioning of oil to cylinders and packings should, as a first approximation, be adjusted by the drops per minute method. To validate the lubrication rate, it must be measured using actual oil consumption for a 24 hour period. A visual inspection of the lubrication rate is required for this type of system. This is done by removing a valve at each end of the cylinder after 48 hours of continuous operation at the final lubrication settings. There should be a film of oil over the entire circumference of the ring travel section of the cylinder bore. As a result of the inspection, individual pumps may be adjusted up or down in the same proportion as the size of the cylinders being fed to improve the lubrication rate.

Operation
The cylinder lubrication system consists of a force-feed lubricator and distribution block system that provides lubrication for the cylinder walls and piston rod packing (see Fig 3-8 for a typical setup). The lubricator is directly driven off the compressor shaft through a right-angle-drive worm and spur gear set mounted on the lubricator box. Lubricator pump(s) fed directly from the

Page 3-8

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior Compressors

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction

crankcase lube system or from an external tank are used to provide oil to the cylinders. (Note that oil from the lubricator box is not used.) A packager-supplied external tank is used when the requirements of the cylinder oil are different from those of the crankcase. A shutoff valve is supplied to isolate the external tank and the lubricator box. The oil flows to the pumps and then pumped to a common manifold feeding the automatic divisioning system. The automatic divisioning system consists of a rupture indicator (set for the job), a 10-micron strainer, a digital no-flow and counter, divider blocks and optional pin indicators (shows which points are over-pressurized and sets accordingly). Each lubrication point (cylinder and packing case) has a double ball check valve. The lubricator box uses the same oil as in the frame or external tank to lubricate its cams and bearings. The right-angle-drive gear on the lubricator box requires a gear oil that meets ISO 680 AGMA-8 (Exxon TK-680 Cylesstic is acceptable). If a blockage or other anomaly occurs, and the system pressure continues to build up, the safety rupture relief in the collector manifold bursts, relieving pressure throughout the entire system and causing the no-flow shutdown to activate and stop the compressor. The protruding pin in the indicator on the distribution block gives a visual indication of the point where the blockage occurred. Before restarting, new rupture discs of the same color and thickness as originally installed must be replaced at the location where rupture occurred. It is the thickness of the color coded discs that determine the rupture pressure. Refer to rupture disc data sheet in Auxiliary Equipment section of this manual.

Section 3: Lubrication and Cooling Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

Maintenance
In order to operate properly, the lubrication system must be completely purged of air. This is done by LOOSENING, BUT NOT REMOVING the nuts of the lube lines at the point of injection to permit purging of oil and air. The nut at the entry to the distribution block, all pin indicators and 1/8-inch pipe plugs in the face of the block must be loosened also, for the same reason.

! Caution
High pressure oil streams may puncture skin. Use proper wrench and keep hands away from the immediate point where the system is purging air.

Loosen the vent screws in the top section of the distribution block. Continue to operate the lubricator pump manually until clear, air-free oil appears at either of the two loosened vent screws. Retighten this vent screw and continue pumping until air-free oil emerges at the other vent screw. When this occurs, retighten second vent screw. Continue to operate the pump manually until air-free oil has emerged from tubing nuts at every injection point. Then, and only then, tighten the nuts on the tubing lines, the pin indicators, and pipe plugs.

Note
If distribution block must be disassembled for cleaning, observe the following: a. Record order of manifold sections and outlet positions in order to facilitate reassembly. b. Have a clean work area. c. Avoid vise marks; protect ground surfaces, and NEVER grip the ground mating surfaces in a vise. d. Pistons are not interchangeable - - each piston is match-honed to its cylinder. e. Pistons are removed by hand-punching with a brass rod (either way). f. Clean all sections with an approved solvent. g. Do not disassemble check valves - - clean with compressed air. Replace defective parts, as required. h. Use all new gaskets when reassembling manifolds.

CAUTION
If the distribution block is disassembled, carefully observe the torque used when reassembling manifolds: Distribution Block Tie Rod Nuts = 20-25ft. lbs. (27-34Nm) Check Valves = 15-20 ft. lbs. (20-27 Nm) End Plugs = 15-20 ft.lbs. (20-27 Nm) Alternate Outlets and Pin indicators = 10-15 ft. lbs. (14-20Nm)

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction

Proportional Lubrication System


The distribution block type lubrication system is a metered, positive, displacement method of lubricating the compressor cylinders and packing. The force feed lubricator pumps oil into a single main line leading to a proportional distribution block. Hydraulically balanced pistons in the block divide the oil into accurate metered amounts for each lubrication point it serves. Selection and make-up of the distribution block allows for accurately measured shot sizes, and precise proportioning to meet different or equal oil requirements. Because of the positive, metered operation, central warning equipment can sense trouble anywhere in the system. Safety equipment includes pin fault indicators, in each outlet from the distribution block, a pneumatic or electric shutdown switch in the event of lubricant flow failures, and a rupture disk in the lubricator collector manifold. Since the system operates on a proportional basis, a single adjustment at the force feed lubricator pump increases or decreases the flow to every lubrication point. Oil flow rates given in percent of lubricator pump stroke accompany each compressor. These settings must be followed and checked to provide adequate lubrication for both break-in and normal operation.

Lubricator Worm And Gear Drive


When starting a compressor for the first time, or after servicing, be sure that the gear box is filled with Exxon TK-680 Cylesstic Worm Gear Oil (ISO680 AGMA-8). It is advisable to check periodically to be certain that the supply of gear oil is maintained. New units are filled with oil at the factory, and should not need filling.

Compressor Frame Lubrication Oil Cooling


The compressor frame is lubricated by the pressurized lubrication system. The oil must be cooled by the shell and tube cooler provided with the compressor (shipped separate for mounting by the packager). Oil should be circulated through the shell side and coolant through the tube side of the cooler. The maximum recommended oil temperature for oil returning to the frame is 175oF (79oC). To insure this oil temperature, coolant temperature and flow must be selected to remove heat according to Table 3-10.

Compressor Cylinder Cooling


Some Superior compressor cylinders are built with cooling water jackets. These cylinder jackets can be cooled by one of three ways: (1) dry jacket, (2) standpipe, or (3) circulated water cooling. 1. Dry jacket cooling is generally used where the gas discharge temperature is less than 140oF (60oC) and gas inlet temperature is greater than 60oF (16oC). In this form of cooling, the air present inside the cylinder water jacket is the medium which transfers heat out of the cylinder. The cylinder jackets must be vented when this form of cooling is used. 2. In standpipe cooling, a water with corrosion inhibitor and/or antifreeze solution is used as the medium for heat transfer. The cylinder jackets are filled with the coolant and then vented to the atmosphere at their highest point. The vent (or standpipe) should be a 6-inch (15 cm) long vertical section of pipe which will contain the coolant when it expands. The pipe must be topped with a vented cap to prevent dirt from entering the coolant. This form of cooling may be used when the gas discharge temperature is less than 250F (121C). and the rise between gas suction and discharge temperature is less than 170F (77C). The temperature of the liquid coolant will reach a mean temperature somewhere between the suction and discharge gas temperatures. Accordingly, a coolant must be chosen whose boiling point is at least 25F (14C) greater than the mean temperature and whose freezing

Page 3-12

point is at least 25F (14C) less than the suction gas temperature (or ambient, whichever is lower). 3. The third form of cooling is by coolant circulation through the cylinder jackets. This form of cooling must be used on compressor cylinders having gas discharge temperatures greater than 250F (121C) or a gas temperature rise greater than 170F (77C). For maximum performance, it is recommended that the cylinder coolant temperature be maintained 10oF to 15F (6oC to 8C) higher than the suction gas temperature. At lower coolant temperatures, condensation forms on the cylinder walls. This condensation must be avoided as it has a tendency to wash the oil film from the cylinder bore, promote corrosion (especially in non-lubricated cylinders), and cause internal damage by excessive wear on rods, rings, valves, and the cylinder bore due to lack of lubrication. Also, condensates are incompressible fluids which can cause damage to any cylinder part by creating forces well beyond the capability of the machine. To control condensates and still maintain optimum cylinder performance, the coolant must be monitored and regulated. This is accomplished by monitoring the coolant in and out temperatures for each cylinder with thermometers and sight flow indicators. From these readings, the operator may regulate the water flow to each cylinder by using a water regulating valve until a coolant temperature differential of 10F (6C) (15F (8C) maximum) is obtained.

Applications that require low suction temperatures below 40oF (4oC) must contact an Authorized Unit Distributor for assistance.

Packing Cooling
In the majority of applications, rod packings will perform satisfactorily without a coolant being circulated through the packing case and therefore dont have coolant passages. Some applications, however, do require that the packing cases be cooled in order to achieve adequate packing ring life. These applications usually involve high pressures and temperatures, marginal lubrication (characteristically encountered with wet and sour gases), and unclean gases. On these units, the packing cases are provided with internal coolant passages. (Figure 3-11 & 3-12). Adequate cooling flow through the packing cases at a satisfactory temperature is required to properly conduct the heat out of the packing. Inlet coolant temperatures should be as cool as possible, but no higher than 90F (32C) is recommended to achieve optimal cooling. The coolant flow required is normally 1 GPM (4 lpm) for each inch of rod diameter with a minimum of 2 GPM (8 lpm). A pressure drop with water coolant of approximately 30 to 50 psig (207-345 kPag) should be expected across each packing case at the required flows.

Coolant Requirements
The primary purpose of any water treatment is to protect the surfaces of the cooling system from cavitation, corrosion, scaling, or sludge deposits that would reduce the transfer of heat to the coolant.

CAUTION
Cleanliness is critical. Protect cooling water from impurities and always use clean tools.

It is the responsibility of the operators/users to consult with reliable vendors of cooling system treatments in order to adequately protect the equipment from damage caused by cavitation, corrosion, scale and sludge formation and other water treatment related problems.

Corrosion
Corrosion is a chemical reaction in a metal such that the surface of the metal exposed to cooling water is changed into one or more of its various compounds, especially iron to iron oxide (rust). As the depth of the corrosion increases iron oxide particles will flake off, exposing more new surface material to attack. Where it will occur in the cooling system and to what degree it will progress depend on factors such as quality of water, metals in the cooling system, surface temperature, and mechanical conditions of surfaces. The types of corrosion commonly found in cooling systems can be crevice, cavitation and erosion, fretting or galvanic.

Scales and Sludge


Minerals dissolved in water form scales and sludge. The dissolved minerals tend to come out of solution when the water is heated. In doing so, the scale is formed on the hot metal surfaces and impedes good heat transfer. The scales and sludge also interfere with the ability of corrosion inhibitors to form their protective films. The most important consideration for the cooling system is good water quality. Table 3-13 shows the range of maximum limits for raw cooling water quality. If raw water is tested and is found to have higher concentrations than those shown on the chart, the water will require treatment or deionizing. If concentrations are below those shown, the water is suitable for use with inhibitors added.

An inhibitor is a chemical part of coolant treatment that reduces corrosion by forming a protective film on the metallic surfaces of the cooling system. These protective films can be of anti foam or coating nature. The anti foam nature reduces the formation of air bubbles in the coolant. The coating effect gives a protective layer between the metal surfaces and the coolant. During cavitation, the violent collapse of the vapor bubble literally blasts small holes in the film. The job of the inhibitor is to recoat these areas. Because the inhibitor is recoating the metal surfaces, its concentration levels must be maintained to continue adequate protection. Therefore, the coolant inhibitor concentration must be checked periodically, and added when needed.
Section 3: Lubrication and Cooling Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors 10/16/06

Page 3-15

Good industrial grade antifreeze should be used in all closed-type cooling systems. All industrial grade antifreezes have some corrosive inhibitors. When exposed to heat, these inhibitors break down. This characteristic requires periodic adjustments to maintain the corrosion protective qualities of the coolant. Corrosion inhibitors vary in the chemical make-up and concentrations depending upon the manufacturer. Most of the products will do an adequate job when quality water (deionized and demineralized) is used. Corrosion inhibitors are ineffective in hard or sub-quality water. The key to adequate cooling water is to begin with clean water and use a reliable water treatment specialist. Chemical treatment of a closed water system is simplified by the use of proprietary inhibitor compounds. The low make-up water requirements of closed systems and, therefore, minimum compound additions place a minimum burden on the user for materials and maintenance. Periodic testing of the coolant, whether by the user or the vendor of the treatment system, is absolutely necessary in order to assure that a proper level of protection is maintained. The equipment user must obtain the specific instructions for the use and testing requirements of the inhibitor compounds from the supplier or manufacturer. A clean system is a prerequisite for establishing protection of any cooling system. Adequately protected closed cooling systems seldom, if ever, present problems caused by scaling, corrosion, deposits or cavitation.

Cooling System
There are three types of cooling systems used for stationary equipment: open, closed and combination. Open systems involve cooling towers, spray ponds, etc., and cool the water by evaporation. Closed systems involve heat rejection through or shell and tube-type or radiator-type heat exchangers. Combination systems have the engine and compressor jacket water in a closed system using shell and tube-type heat exchangers to transfer the heat to an open system using cooling towers, etc, as above. Closed type systems are commonly used and approved cooling methods; however, because open-type systems involve not only large volumes of make-up water, but also the ease of airborne contamination, Cameron Compression do not recommend using these for this equipment.

Section 4 Sour Gas Compressor Applications


This section defines additional compressor hardware and special materials for use when the compressor is applied in sour gas or corrosive gas service. The requirements listed are based on American Petroleum Institute (API) Production Equipment Standard 11P, National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) Standard MR0175, and Cameron Compression experience. Additional specifications may apply to pulsation dampers, piping and other equipment used in conjunction with this compressor. Copies of API 11P and NACE MR0175 can be purchased on line: American Petroleum Institute http://www.api.org will default you to http://www.global.ihs.com 1-800-854-7179 ext. 7969 for a copy of API 11P. National Association of Corrosion Engineers-A copy of specification MR0175 can be purchased online at www.nace.org or by calling (281) 228-6200. These specifications apply to equipment only! Follow safe operating and maintenance procedures associated with personnel around sour gas machinery as dictated by your company procedures. Sour gas is poisonous and attacks the nervous system and can cause paralysis, permanent injury or death!

DANGER
Sour gas or hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a highly corrosive and extremely toxic gas. Every precaution reguarding life and equipment must be taken in a hydrogen sulfide application. Read and understand the United States Department of Labors Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations for Air Contaminants (standard 1915.1000) and the Confined Space Pre-Entry Check List (standard 1910.146 App D). These regulations are available online at the OSHA website:www.osha-slcgov.com Cameron Compression recommends that Superior equipment users and oil and gas service equipment packagers follow the guidelines set forth by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers in specification MR0175: Sulfide Stress Cracking Resistant Metallic Materials for Oilfield Equipment.

Hazards of Hydrogen Sulfide or Sour Gas

Caution should be taken when working in or around hydrogen sulfide (H2S). This chemical is dangerous and can cause harm to personnel. H2S is colorless and smells like rotten eggs. In higher concentrations it will kill your sense of smell and impede your ability to detect it. DO NOT relay on your sense of smell as a detection method. Table 4-1 gives some general information on the concentrations levels of H2S and its effect on the body. This should be thoroughly read and understood before working in an H2S environment.

The equipment specifications are based on three levels of sour gas plus additional National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) requirements as defined by the following percentages of H2S: Level I Level 1-11P Level 2-11P Enhanced Trim Less than 2% H2S (by volume) 2% to 5% H2S (by volume) Greater than 5% H2S (by volume) Follow NACE MR0175 Guidelines

Trim Requirements
For Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Concentrations Up To 2% By Volume: For any concentration of H2S up to 2% by volume in lubricated service, special trim will not be required. Standard material is acceptable and special lubrication practices are recommended. The frame lubricant used must have a total base number (TBN) of 15 or higher to help prevent the lubricant from turning acid and damaging bearings and bushings. This alkalinity must be maintained during operation in the machine at no less than approximately 30% of the original TBN number by appropriate timely make-up or complete oil changes. The frame lubricant must meet or exceed the requirements of MIL-L-2104B, Supplement No1.

Page 4-2

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior Compressors

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual

A complete oil analysis program on the frame lubricant is required to determine proper oil change intervals as well as to monitor the condition of the lubricant and the unit. Compressor cylinder lubricants must adhere to the requirements of Superior Engineering Standard ES1002. Viscosities are to be on the high side of the pressure conditions normally required and a 3% to 5% compounding (similar to steam cylinder oils) is also required. The compressor cylinder lubricant rate is to be double the normal rate for equivalent non-sour gas applications. All brass, bronze, copper and other copper alloys are to be avoided on hardware for all gas wetted parts. The distance piece is to be properly vented in accordance with local safety standards to provide maximum safety to personnel. Soft iron or aluminum gaskets are to be used between the valve and valve seat. The O-ring material used for standard equipment is Viton (Spec. 473) and this is also accept able for H2S service. For lower temperature operations (< 27F (<-3C) Neoprene (Spec. 479) can be specified as an option. Level 1-11P trim (H2S Concentrations of 2% - 5% By Volume) include all of the requirements applicable to concentrations of less than 2% apply plus the following additional requirements: A suitable corrosion inhibitor should be added to the cylinder lubricating oil. Cylinders are to be equipped with a suction flushing system (injection of cylinder lubricating oil into the suction nozzle of each cylinder). This is in addition to the regular cylinder lubrication. This helps to resist the natural solvent action of the sour gas and insures a thorough distribution of oil for better lubrication. It also helps to better form a barrier to corrosion by coating all the valve surfaces with an oil film. Oil slingers are to be used on each compressor rod in the distance piece compartment to insure that none of the H2S contaminated cylinder or packing lubricant works its way back into the crankcase and contaminates the frame lubricating system. Packing and piston ring material shall either be non-metallic or contain no copper bearing metals. Compressor valves will be standard construction and hardness. All carbon steel, alloy steel, or 12CR steel parts which are gas wetted (come into contact with the process gas stream) are to have a maximum hardness of 22 HRC. This is to include all internal fasteners and V.V. pocket screws as a minimum, but excludes valve fasteners. The piston rods are 17-4 pH stainless steel with a hardness of 28 - 33 HRC (Heat Treat Spec ZA). Forged steel cylinder bodies made of AISI 4142 are to have a maximum hardness of 235 HB. Engineering will evaluate these applications on an individual basis as some cylinder pressure ratings may have to be reduced because of the mechanical properties restrictions.

Section 4: Sour Gas Compressor Applications Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-10/12/06

Page 4-3

Level 2-11p Trim (H2S Concentrations > 5%) All of the requirements for H2S concentrations of 2%-5% apply plus the following: Valve components made of carbon steel or AISI 4140 alloy steel shall have a maximum hardness of 22 HRC (Heat Treat Spec. H2S). This reduces the pressure differential capability of any specific valve design and thus the pressure differential capability of the cylinders. Engineering will evaluate these on an individual basis and select appropriate alternative designs to meet the application requirements. This reduced hardness requirement also includes steel valve cages (retainers) when they are used. Compressor valve components may also be made of AISI 416 stainless steel with a maximum hardness of 22 HRC. Valve plates wherever possible are to be plastic to better prevent seat wear against the softer valves seats. When metallic plates are required, 410 stainless steel with a hardness of 17 to 22 HRC will be used. Nimonic 90 valve spring material will be used. Two compartment configuration of distance pieces is required. The outer compartment must be purged with inert gas to a pressure of 3 to 5 inches (7.6 to 12.7 cm) H2O. All compressor cylinder and distance piece critical bolting, capscrew, studs, and nuts which come in contact with the process gas stream shall conform to ASTM A193-B7M (bolts and studs) and ASTM A194-2HM (nuts). All instrumentation that comes into contact with the process stream (liquid level controls, shutdowns, bourdon tubes, process valving, relief valves, etc.) shall meet the full requirements of NACE MRO175 except stainless steel tubing fittings. This requirement is the packagers responsibility. The distance piece shall be purged with inert gas. The packager is responsible for purging per these requirements. If other venting or purging systems are desired the details are to be negotiated between the purchaser and the packager (i.e., vacuum systems or sweet natural gas purge). The final detailed system should provide for the safety of persons around the equipment and should prevent contamination of the frame oil with sour gas. Packing cases will not be purged unless required by the customers.

Enhanced H2S Trim Requirements


Enhanced H2S Trim Requirements are based on guidelines established by NACE MR0175. That standard specifies more rigid H2S trim levels than required for standard API 11P trim.

Page 4-4

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior Compressors

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual

The following requirements should be followed when H2S trim in excess of API 11P requirements is needed to meet NACE. This enhanced level of trim can also be used for any concentration of H2S as required by the customer. The requirements are as follows: A suitable corrosion inhibitor should be added to the cylinder lubricating oil. The cylinders are to be equipped with a suction flushing system (injection of cylinder lubricating oil into the suction nozzle of each cylinder). Two compartment distance pieces are required. The outer compartment must be purged with inert gas to a pressure of 3 to 5 inches (7.6 to 12.7 cm) H2O. The inner compartment can either be separately vented as described previously or purged with inert gas to a pressure of 3 to 5 inches (7.6 to 12.7 cm) H2O. Oil slingers are to be used on each compressor rod in the distance piece compartment to insure that none of the H2S contaminated cylinder or packing lubricant works its way back into the crankcase and contaminates the frame lubricating system. Compressor valve springs are to be Nimonic 90. Packing garter springs are to be Inconel. The piston rods are stainless steel with a hardness of 28 - 33 HRC (Heat Treat Spec. ZA). Tungsten carbide coating is required in the packing travel area of the piston rods. The valve components are to be made of carbon steel or AISI 4140 alloy steel with a hardness of 22 HRC maximum (Heat Treat Spec H2S). This reduces the pressure differential capability of any specific valve design and thus the pressure differential capability of the cylinders. Engineering will evaluate these on an individual basis and select appropriate alternative valve designs to meet the application requirements. Compressor valve components may also be made of AISI 416 stainless steel with a maximum hardness of 22 HRC. This reduced hardness requirement also includes steel valve cages (retainers) when they are used. Forged steel cylinder bodies are to be made of AISI 4142 with a maximum hardness of 235 HB. Engineering will evaluate these applications on an individual basis as some cylinder pressure ratings may have to be reduced. All steel gas wetted parts are to have a maximum hardness of 22 HRC. This is to include all internal fasteners and V.V. pocket screws as a minimum. Valve plates wherever possible are to be plastic to better prevent seat wear against the softer valve seats. When metal plates are required, 410 stainless steel with a hardness of 17 to 22 HRC shall be used. All compressor cylinder and distance piece critical bolting, capscrews, studs, or nuts which come into contact with the process gas stream shall conform to ASTM A193-B7M (bolts and studs) and ASTM A194-2HM (nuts).

Section 5 Installation
General
Installation of the compressor will be determined by the fabricator and the end customer. Since the method employed will vary due to application, the following is offered as a guide to aid in the installation. These instructions are based on previous installations that have proven satisfactory. There are two basic compressor mountings: the baseframe or skid mount and the direct to block mount. (See Figures 5-1 and 5-2.) The baseframe/skid mount is most commonly used whereby the fabricator sets up the complete installation as a package. This package is then moved to location and placed on a foundation. With the block mounting, there is no intermediate (baseframe) between the compressor and foundation, thus the compressor is mounted direct to the foundation (block). This type installation is of a more permanent nature. If you have a choice as to the location of the compressor, select a site where the ground under and around the unit will be firm and dry at all times. Filled ground, wet clay, unconfined sand and gravel, or similar soils provide poor support. Be sure that sufficient space is available for necessary maintenance. For instance, there should be ample space to permit removing the piston and rod assembly out the outboard end of the cylinder. See that provisions can be made for an overhead hoist, or that a portable crane can be moved into position as necessary for removal or installation of major parts or assemblies. Electrical outlets, lighting and cleanliness are other important factors. Adequate ventilation is essential to safety and the welfare of the operating personnel.

Preparing the Foundation


The responsibility for an adequate foundation is that of the customer. Thus, it is suggested that a foundation engineer be called in where soil conditions are questionable or where the location of the compressor is such that transmitted vibration would have detrimental effects not only to the compressor installation, but on surrounding machinery, buildings, or personnel. Often times, a neighboring installation on similar soil will serve as a clue to the soil conditions. However, unless the nature of the ground is well known, it is advisable to dig several test pits at the proposed site. CCS will gladly furnish data on weights and unbalanced forces required for calculations by a foundation engineer. In any case where increasing the size of the standard minimum foundation is necessary, the area of the base should be increased to decrease the soil

loading and the possibility of rocking. When freezing temperatures are likely to occur, the foundation must be carried well below the lowest expected frostline as determined by the foundation engineer. Figure 5-2 Figure 5-1 Base Frame/Skid Mounting Block (Concrete) Mounting

00757 00758

Foundation Bolts
To locate the foundation bolts, make a wooden template to temporarily position the bolts according to the dimensions given on the foundation plan. Set up the template in the exact position to be occupied by the compressor, allowing space for the grout as indicated. (Figure 5-3). Fasten the template firmly in position. The next step is to attach the bolts to the template so that they will extend into the foundation. There are two important items which should be considered at this point: a. Make sure the bolts project far enough through the frame hole to allow two full threads beyond the nut. Allow for thickness of grout, frame, nut, etc. b. Provide allowance for misalignment. A piece of 2-1/2 to 3-inch (6 to 8 cm) pipe or metal tube positioned around each bolt (Figure 5-3) will prevent the bolts from being cemented into a fixed position and thus allow slight movement of the bolts for alignment with the holes in the frame. Stuff paper or rags around the bolts at the top of the pipe to prevent cement from entering when the foundation is poured. The length that the bolts extend into the foundation is indicated on the foundation plans.

Placement and Leveling


After the foundation has been completed and the concrete has had ample time to thoroughly set, the unit is ready to be placed upon the foundation.

Figure 5-3

Foundation Bolt Positioning

First, remove the template and chip off the top layer of pure cement and sand so that the grout will have a good solid surface for bonding. Then, clean the top surface of the foundation thoroughly. Soak the surface for several hours before pouring grout, but make sure there is no standing water. Remove the stuffing from around the foundation bolts, but place a dam around the top 00759 of the bolt and extending into the can, to avoid grout contact with any part of the bolt. Next, screw each jackscrew through the frame (Figure 5-3) in a manner which would support the frame approximately 1 to 1.5 inch (2.5 to 3.8 cm) above the foundation. This provides for leveling, aligning and grouting. (There should be a jackscrew at each holddown bolt.) With the compressor resting on the jackscrews, check to see that it is level. Place level on top side of frame as required to level in both directions all around. Bring frame to level by adjusting jackscrews. Keep all jackscrews snug. After levelling, foundation bolt nuts should be secure but NOT TIGHTENED. It is very important the unit is aligned as accurately as possible so that after grouting or shimming has been completed, the foundation bolts may be pulled down without any resulting stresses.

CAUTION
Responsibility for the grout belongs with the customer or their contractor. Grouting material instructions should be carefully followed. Failure to comply with this warning may result in damage to the unit.

When the grout has completely hardened, LOOSEN THE JACKSCREWS and tighten down all the foundation bolt nuts evenly. Make sure that no stresses are set up when pulling down the nuts by checking alignment with a dial indicator.

Coupling Installation and Alignment


The success of a compressor installation depends greatly upon the construction of the foundation and upon the care used to align the compressor with its driver. The standard flexible coupling used to drive the Superior compressor is shown in Figure 5-4. Installation is as follows dial indicator method: Figure 5-4 Flexible Coupling Assembly
Laminated rings must be re-assembled in the coupling exactly as received.

a. Disassemble the flexible coupling. Note the arrangement of bolts, washer, and nuts. They must be replaced in their original position. Tie a string or wire through one bolt hole of the laminated rings (A) to retain the dialed position of individual discs. . b. Mount flange (B) on engine flywheel. Torque flange screws per Table 7-2 and lockwire together. Mount hub (C) on compressor crankshaft. (See instructions given in Drive Coupling Hub Page 7-9.)

c. With engine and compressor moved into position, as shown on the outline drawing, reassemble coupling. Dimension (D) must be maintained during the following alignment procedure. Figure 5-5 Dial Indicator Method of Alignment

00761

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior Compressors

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual

The recommended procedure for establishing final alignment is called the indicator method. Proper lining up may take a little time, but it is absolutely essential. Flexible couplings should not be required to compensate for any misalignment that can be eliminated. The closer the initial alignment, the greater the capacity of the coupling to take care of subsequent operational misalignment. d. Attach dial indicator as shown in Figure 5-5 (view B). Rotate coupling 360 degrees to locate point of minimum reading on dial; adjust indicator to zero. e. Rotate coupling 360 degrees. Observe misalignment reading. f. Move engine or compressor, or both, until dial indicator reading does not exceed 0.0003 inch for each inch of diameter at indicator stem (0.0003 cm per each cm of diameter at indicator stem). This is approximately 0.006 inch (0.015 cm) at outside diameter of flange B. This corrects angular misalignment.

Bolt heads should be held and locknuts only turned, when tightening coupling bolts.

g. Reset indicator to zero and repeat steps (d), (e), and (f); if either, the engine or compressor is moved during aligning trials. h. The coupling should be turned several revolutions to make sure no end-wise creep in the crankshaft is measured. i. Mount dial indicator (Figure 5-5 (view C)) to check for parallel misalignment. Set indicator stem on outer diameter surface of flange B and adjust to zero. j. Rotate coupling 360 degrees. Move and/or shim the units until the indicator reading comes within the maximum allowable variation of 0.004 inch (0.010 cm). k. Torque all bolts. See Table 7-2 for recommended torque values. After several hours of operation, recheck both alignment and bolt torque. l. When proper alignment is attained within the previously specified limits, the laminated rings A must appear vertical and undistorted. There must be no end thrust due to poor initial assembly of the coupling.

Coupling bolts are tightened at the factory for shipping purposes only. When installing coupling, the below values apply to bolts and locknuts as they are received from the factory. If any additional lubricant is used or if the threads are wiped dry, these values must be modified.

n. Alignment should be checked periodically. Realign unit when parallel misalignment exceeds 0.014 inch (0.036 cm) T.I.R. and/or angular misalignment exceeds 0.020 inch (0.051 cm) T.I.R.

Crankshaft Web Deflection


The compressor should be aligned to the driver according to the instructions given above. During the alignment procedure, the crankshaft web deflection should be measured on the number one throw. (Figure 5-7) The deflection should not be greater than 0.001 inch (0.025 mm). The deflection should be periodically checked and should not exceed 0.002 inch (0.051 mm). Note: The deflection can be measured with #1 connecting rod removed.

Figure 5-7 Crankshaft Web Deflection Measurement

Cylinder Mounting
Cylinders are normally mounted on the compressor frame when shipped to a location. Sometimes, because of shipping and packaging restrictions, cylinders may be shipped separately. If that is your case, the cylinder head and the piston and rod assembly maybe installed prior to shipment. When reassembling the cylinder to the crosshead guide, use a criss-cross pattern nut tightening sequence. See Table 7-2 for recommended torque values. Outer end cylinder supports, if supplied, are intended to support the weight of the cylinder only. Do not use them to force the cylinder into alignment. If a cylinder cannot be aligned, check for dirt, burrs, or other irregularities at the mounting surfaces.

Sliding Rod Through Packings


Obtain a piston rod starter tool before attempting to slide the rod through packing. This tool consists of a split sleeve cone and capscrew. The piston rod should be coated with grease before and after installing it on the rod. This tool is designed to protect the packing rings from damage during removal and installation of the rod from the cylinder.

Setting Piston End Clearance


Piston end clearance is set by screwing the piston and rod assembly further into or out of the crosshead. With a cold compressor, the total clearance should be distributed with two-thirds on the head end and onethird on the crank end of the cylinder. This allows for thermal growth of the reciprocating assemblies during normal operation. Measure end clearance as follows: a. Remove a valve from each end of the cylinder.

Figure 5-8 Piston End Clearance Check

b. Bar over the compressor, at least one revolution in the Figure 5-9 Measuring the Piston normal operating direction, to insure all parts are End Clearance working freely. c. Measure end clearance using feeler gauge or soft solder. Measure total clearance then set 1/3 on crank end and 2/3 on head end. (Example: if total clearance is .120"; then set .040" on crank end and .080" on head end.) End clearance should never be set less than .040" without Engineering approval and documentation. d.While barring the compressor over again, head end clearance is taken by inserting a 1-inch (2.5 cm) length of soft solder between the approaching piston and cylinder head. Pistons 10 inches (25 cm) and larger should use solder inserted from both sides to keep the piston from cocking and giving a false reading (Figure 5-8). Measure the crushed solder wire (Figure 5-9). The head end clearance should be 0.070 to 0.130 inch (1.78 to 3.30 mm) for a cold compressor. e. Check the crank end using the same method. For a cold compressor, the crank end clearance should be 0.040 to 0.130 inch (1.02 to 3.30 mm).

f. If any adjustment is needed, loosen the balance nut and screw the piston and rod assembly in or out of the crosshead. The WH/MH piston rods are threaded with 10 threads per inch. Thus one complete turn of the piston and rod assembly moves it 0.100 inch (2.54 mm). The RAM piston rods are threaded with 8 threads per inch. Thus one complete turn of the piston and rod assembly moves it 0.125 inch (3.18 mm). The WG piston rods are threaded with 12 threads per inch. Thus one complete turn of the piston and rod assembly moves it 0.083 inch (2.11 mm). g. After adjusting the piston and rod assembly, recheck the head end and crank end clearances. h. After setting the piston end clearance, re-torque (Table 7-2 torque values) the balance nut.

Piston Rod Runout


Once the piston and rod assembly and cylinder head are assembled, and the piston end clearances are set, a check can be made for the piston rod runout. Proceed as follows: a. Bar over the compressor until reaching the crank end dead center position. b. Place two dial indicators as Figure 5-10 Dial Indicators close to the packing as possible. Zero the two dial indicators. (Figure 5-10). c. Bar over the compressor until reaching the head end dead center position. Record indicator movement. d. The horizontal runout must not exceed +/- 0.0010 inch (0.025 mm) for 6" stroke, or +/- 0.0012 inch (0.029 mm) for 7" stroke. Allowable vertical runout tolerances are in Table 5-11. e. If the horizontal run out exceeds acceptable limits, loosen the packing and re-torque. If the crisscross pattern of torquing is not followed, this may cause the packing case to seat at an angle, causing the rod to deflect to one side. A second technique would be to loosen the rodto-crosshead nut, and rotate the piston one quarter turn before re-torquing. If the runout still exceeds limitations, contact your Cameron Compression Aftermarket facility for assistance. f. If the vertical runout exceeds acceptable limits, check the packing case as explained for horizontal runout. Also, check the piping and bottles attached to the cylinder to see if they are

Section 6 Operation Start-up


Complete Superior Compressor Start-Up Checklist and Report Control Procedures Engineering Standard ES30 and forward to the address included in procedure. Preparation For Initial Startup
Prior to startup, the frame lubrication system should be primed by using the lube oil hand priming pump or automatic priming pump. Use of this pump will prevent oil starvation in the bearings during startup, prolonging compressor life. Compressor design, operating conditions, and the gases being handled all have a significant effect on how well a lubricant performs in the given application.

CAUTION
Read this manual and familiarize yourself with the compressor, auxiliary equipment, and your companys safety procedures before attempting to start the equipment.

The following procedure is suggested before starting the unit for the first time, after an overhaul of the frame or cylinders, or after an extended (over 6 months) shutdown. a. Check the alignment between the driver and the compressor. b. Verify the proper torquing of the foundation bolts. c. Remove the top cover of the base and the covers for the crossheads and distance pieces on each crosshead guide. Thoroughly wipe the interior of the compressor with a lint free cloth to remove any water or foreign material that may have accumulated during shipment or storage. d. Check the crankshaft for web deflection. e. Check the piston rod runout. f. Remove a valve from each end of every compressor cylinder. g. Check the piston end clearances on all cylinders, and then replace the valves. h. Add lubricating oil, which meets the proper specifications, to the base and to the lube oil filter.

DANGER
Vent the compressor and the process system to the atmosphere, per the contractor/packager recommended procedure, before removing any gas-containing part of the compressor or its associated piping.

DANGER
High pressure oil stream may puncture skin. Use proper wrench and keep hands away from the immediate point where connection is purging air.

Section 6: Start-up Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-10/12/06

Page 6-1

i. Check the force feed lubricator for cleanliness and fill to the proper level with oil. j. Adjust all force feed lubricator pumps to full stroke for cylinder and packing break-in. k. Disconnect ends of force feed lubricator lines as close as possible to cylinders and crosshead guides. Hand pump the lubricators to fill lines and eliminate air. l. Connect the force feed lubricator lines and operate pumps ten more strokes to force oil into cylinders and rod packing. An oil/grease gun may be used to drive oil through the lines. m. Prime the frame oil system with the lube oil priming pump. Operate the pump a minimum of 100 strokes or run automatic pre-lube pump. This should fill all empty oil lines. n. Hand lubricate the piston rod next to the packing. (This does not apply to non-lubricated applications.) o. Replace all covers with their respective gaskets and tighten screws according to Table 7-2. Distance piece covers may be left off to check for packing leaks on start up if not using sour gas. For sour gas applications, see warnings in sour gas trim Section 4.
Oil level in the frame should be filled to the level in the oil level regulator (if supplied), NOT the level in the frame bulls-eye.

p. Check to see that all crosshead guides or distance pieces and packings are individually vented with the proper size of vent lines. Refer to Engineering Standard ES3 for the most up-to-date recommendations. q. Verify that all safety switches, shutdown devices, and relief valves are properly set and operational. See Table 7-16 for normal operation, alarm, and shutdown settings. r. Visually verify that all guards are in place. s. Unload the compressor for startup by opening the bypass line between the first stage suction and last stage discharge lines. t. Verify that suction and discharge block valves are open. The frame lubricant must be capable of operating with the type of gas being handled by the compressor cylinders. For viscosity requirements see page 3-3 and Table 3-2 & 3-2. Lube oil header pressure should be 50 psi (345 kPa) and is maintained at this level by the pressure relief valve. If adjustment is required, it can be done by removing the cap which provides access to the spring loaded adjusting screw. This should be adjusted while at normal operating speed and temperature.

WG-10/12/06

Page 6-2

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior Compressors

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual

When starting the compressor, verify a lube oil header pressure of 30 psi (207 kPa) or greater occurs within 5 seconds of compressor startup. To prevent damage to the crankshaft and other lubricated parts, all compressors are equipped with low oil pressure shutdowns. This is triggered when the oil pressure falls below 30 psi (207 kPa). The oil level in the frame is normally at the center of the sight glass. An alarm should sound if the oil level rises 1 inch during compressor operation, this will submerge the gaskets on the bottom of the front and rear covers. A shutdown should occur if the oil level rises an additional 1.5 inch (3.8 cm) or if the oil level falls 1 inch (2.5 cm) from normal level. The oil level in the frame sump should be checked while the compressor is running. The correct level is shown by the round sight gauge on the auxiliary end of the compressor. Oil level (while running) should be no higher than the top and no lower than the bottom of the sight gauge. Oil may be manually added through the breather cap hole in the top cover. The breather cap is designed to be threaded into its bushing by hand and no wrenches should be used. Make up oil may also be continuously added through an optional, frame mounted oil level controller connected to an oil supply tank.

Initial Startup
1. Open the valves supplying water to the compressor cooling system (when required).

CAUTION
Running the compressor at speeds less than 600 RPM may result in unusual wear of the components.

2. Start up and operate the unit under no-load conditions at reduced speed where possible (600 RPM for engine driven units). Check the oil pressure. When the compressor is started, an oil pressure of 30 psi (207 kPa) must be experienced within 5 seconds or the compressor must be immediately shut down. Do not restart until adequate oil pressure can be assured. The oil level in the frame is normally at the center of the sight glass. 3. Run compressor for 2 to 5 minutes at 600 RPM. If driver is a constant speed electric motor run compressor for only 1 to 2 minutes. 4. Shut system down and check all bearings and packings for high temperatures. 5. Remove crosshead guide covers and check all lubricated surfaces for high temperatures. 6. Check piping for oil or water leaks. 7. Start system and compressor up again and run for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Add oil to the crankcase to bring the oil level (while running) up to the middle of the sight glass. Shut down and recheck as above.

Section 6: Start-up Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-10/12/06

Page 6-3

8. Start unit. Bring unit up to full rated speed. Apply load to compressor by closing the bypass line between the first stage suction and last stage discharge lines. 9. During the initial period of operation, pay close attention to the machine for any unusual high temperature, pressure, or vibration. In the event of equipment malfunction where excessive vibration, noise, high temperature, or any other dangerous condition exists, the compressor should be stopped immediately.

DANGER
Do not immediately remove the equipment covers after the compressor has been stopped. Allow the unit to cool down to prevent possible explosion due to in rush of air or injury caused by contact with hot surfaces.

Normal Startup
Not all of the instructions provided for initial startups are required for routine starting. Superior recommends that the variable volume pockets should not be adjusted during operation. The following notes comprise a normal starting procedure: 1. Set all clearance devices at positions suited for the planned operating conditions. Unload the fixed volume pockets or suction valve unloaders. 2. Operate the force feed lubricator pumps, by hand, for ten strokes. (Be sure the lubricator tank is kept full.) 3. Hand prime the frame lube oil system by priming 40 strokes with the lube oil hand priming pump or automatic priming pump (to prevent oil starvation in the bearings for compressor life). 4. Turn on cooling water supply. 5. Start the unit. Check frame lube oil pressure. 6. Operate at low speed (600 RPM where possible) and no load for several minutes. Check force feed lubricators for feed (Figure 3-6). Check lube oil for proper level, at sight gauge. 7. Bring up to rated speed and apply load.

DANGER
Improper setting of variable volume pockets, fixed volume pockets, valve unloaders, or other unloading devices can result in damage and/or injury to equipment and/or personnel.Operating the system without clearance and loading information can result in equipment failure due to overload, excessive rod loads, and high temperatures.

Normal Shutdown
1. Decrease speed to 600 RPM (engine driven units only). 2. Unload the compressor by opening the bypass line between the first stage suction and the last stage discharge lines.

WG-10/12/06

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual

3. Shutdown the compressor driver. 4. Close suction and discharge block valves. 5. Turn off water supply. 6. Relieve pressure by opening the blowdown valve and venting to atmosphere, the compressor cylinders, suction piping, and discharge piping to remove any remaining gas.

Emergency Shutdown
In an emergency situation, the shutdown devices will shut down the system. In such as case, the cause of the shutdown must be identified and corrected before restarting the compressor. Refer to the Troubleshooting Page 7-23 thru 7-31 to troubleshoot compressor.

Recommended Operating Conditions


The compressor should only be operated at speeds, pressures, and temperatures listed on the data sheets or performance curves. The unit should never be operated at conditions other than those specified on the data sheets without contacting the manufacture.

Note
Superior attempts to furnish performance curves and/or computer printouts to assist you with compressor operation. If they have been omitted please fill out the following form and new curves will be provided to you. If compressor operating conditions change, contact your Cameron Compression Systems Aftermarket Sales Office.

Decommissioning

Note
During decommissioning of the unit, care must be taken to drain all fluids from the machine, and from auxiliary and utility piping, and wipe all fluid residues from the interior. These fluids need to be properly disposed of, according to local regulations, and appropriate PPE should be worn while handling them in order to avoid contact with the skin. Remaining materials are iron, steel, aluminum, bronze, and phenolics, and as such should not present any environmental hazards. If the machine is to be moved and reapplied at another installation site, the interior of the machine needs to prepared for moving and storage according to engineering standards ES27, ES28, or ES29.

Section 7 Maintenance
General
The diligent observation of the inspection and maintenance procedure, given in this section, will go a long way toward insuring satisfactory operation of the compressor. Superior recommends planned periodic inspections of equipment. Regardless of the gas compressors, malfunctions can occur. Faithful preventive maintenance and the use of genuine Superior parts will help prevent costly down time, repairs, and replacement costs. Planned shutdowns for doing preventive maintenance will result in minimum maintenance costs and maximum mechanical efficiency of your equipment. Good preventive maintenance practice includes a periodic check of critical bolt torques, such as compressor main and connecting rod bolts and drive coupling bolts.

Acceptable Clearance Values


Table 7-1 shows clearance values for some critical components when new. When a part is first installed, the clearance should be within the range shown in Table 7-1. If not, the part is defective or has been incorrectly installed. During inspections, clearances found exceeding the clearance range indicate worn parts that should be replaced. * Added WH7 to Table 7-1 & 7-2 per Rick Byrd 8/15/07 no changes made to limits, sizes, or torques.

Torque Recommendations
To insure satisfactory compressor performance and to minimize costly failures, it is extremely important to tighten all nuts and bolts to the recommended torque values specified in Table 7-2. Additional information is given in Service Bulletins SB168 and SB175. Follow the following general recommendations. Torque wrenches should not be used to break loose fasteners. Use an appropriate wrench or breaker bar. Hand position is critical. Only pull from the hand hold to assure accuracy. Periodic calibration is essential to ensure accuracy.

CAUTION
When tightening nuts and bolts on compressor valve caps, bottles, and flanges care must be taken to avoid excessive tightening. Overtightening can result in unnecessary stress in the cylinder body and, in the case of valve caps, can result in valve seat distortion.

Occasionally clean and lubricate the ratcheting head with light oil, NOT GREASE.

Section 7: Maintenance Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-8/15/07

Page 7-3

Critical Bolt Torques


It is critical that the following preventative maintenance schedule be followed to prevent major damage to your compressor. Check all critical bolt torques on components as follows: One month after unit is placed in service. Six months after unit is placed in service. Every twelve months thereafter. Repeat this schedule when the compressor is rebuilt, overhauled, or has major repairs. All torque values shown in Table 7-2 are based on threads which are clean, free of burrs, paint, etc. and lubricated with engine oil or similar petroleum base lubricants. Unless specified, DO NOT USE any compounds containing molybdenum disulfide as a thread lubricant. Due to its high lubricity, excessive stresses will result if used with the torque values given in Table 7-2.

Precautions
Follow the precautions listed below when any maintenance is performed. Damage to the equipment, personal injury or death may result if these precautions are not followed. a. Block the flywheel to prevent rotation of the compressor and driver. b. Remove all gas by unloading, venting, and then blinding the compressor. Blinding means to shut off all block valves so there can be no process gas flow to the compressor. c. Eliminate all internal pressures by removing cylinder indicator plugs or vent through indicator cocks, if provided. d. Prevent clogged oil lines or filters by using only lint free cloths. e. Ensure all tools and work areas are clean and free of oil, water, dirt, dust or grit. f. Never file, grind or scrape any lubricated parts (i.e. bearing shells or saddles). g. Never distort or mark the piston rod with any tool or device. Rods that are bent or have burrs will damage the packing or prevent it from sealing. In severe cases, the rod could break.
When work is being done on the compressor, the driving unit must be blocked in such a way that the compressor cannot turn over. Block valves must be closed on the suction and discharge lines. Air or gas must be bled off from the cylinders. Precaution must be taken to prevent the opening of any valve which would release pressure against a piston, causing it to rotate the unit at a critical moment.

DANGER

Page 7-4

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual h. Never torque or tighten any nut, cap screw or stud if threads or mating threads are covered with paint or other materials that are not specified by Superior for use on threads. i. Genuine Superior parts must replace any components which are changed. j. Do not refinish worn valve plates. k. When reassembling parts during maintenance, replace all worn or damaged gaskets and seals. l. Always install new cotter pins or lock wire. m. Check and clean all lubricating oil passages when the unit is down for repair or normal maintenance. n. After a long period of shutdown or a major overhaul, frequently check the unit during the first 300 hours of operation. o. After completing maintenance, remove any locking or blocking devices before attempting to rotate the equipment.

Component Maintenance
Base (Crankcase)
The base is made of high strength alloy iron and is heavily ribbed and reinforced for maximum rigidity. Large spacer bars provide further stability and ease reassembly. The top and end covers are individually removable to provide easy access to moving parts. Our open-top design allows the crankshaft to be easily removed. An oil sump is provided in the lower portion of the base. The line-bored main bearing supports have caps which are match-marked and numbered and must be assembled accordingly.

Crankshaft, Thrust And Main Bearings


The complete crankshaft assembly includes the drive end oil slinger and the auxiliary end drive gear. Both of these are shrunk onto the crankshaft, eliminating the need for keyways and keys. The crankshaft is drilled to carry lubrication from the main bearings to the connecting rod bearings. The thrust bearing is a half washer type. It fits into a groove machined in the main bearing saddle and is held captive by the crankshaft, the main bearing saddle and the main bearing cap.

Section 7: Maintenance Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-8/15/07

Page 7-5

The upper and lower main bearing shells are interchangeable. After the compressor has been run, it is preferable that the shells be placed back in their original position. Therefore, upon removal of the bearing shells, they should be so marked.

CAUTION
Only use a pencil for marking on the parting line faces or in the groove of the bearing shells.

After removing the main bearing cap and the upper bearing shell, the lower bearing shell can be rolled out from underneath the crankshaft with the help of the main bearing removal tool. This is done by inserting the neck of the tool into the oil passage hole in the crankshaft journal. When the compressor is barred over, the tool will push the bearing shell out from underneath the journal and around to the top where it can be removed. A new bearing shell can be installed using the same procedure. Carefully clean the crankshaft, bearing shells and saddles before attempting to replace the bearing shells. Under no circumstances should any filing, scraping, or other fitting be done on either bearing shells or saddles. The bearing cap nuts should be tightened uniformly (using a crisscross pattern) to the proper torque given in Table 7-2. The main bearing clearance (tolerance value) can be checked by using a dial indicator and a hydraulic jack. Proceed as follows: a. Remove the top cover to gain access to the crankshaft. b. Attach the dial indicator to the bearing cap via a magnetic base. Mount the indicator so the button comes in contact with the crankshaft at its highest point. Depress the button until the dial makes one complete revolution and set the pointer top to zero. c. Use a hydraulic jack that will fit between the crankshaft and frame bottom. Position it as close as possible to the bearing being checked. d. Support the jack with a piece of wood and jack the crankshaft up and down to get a clearance reading on the dial indicator. e. Compare the clearance reading with the tolerance value given in Table 7-1. If the clearance reading exceeds the maximum limit, the bearing needs to be replaced.

Connecting Rod And Bearings


The connecting rod is a steel forging, rifle-drilled to provide lubrication to the crosshead pin bushings. The crankpin end of the rod is split and retains the precision type bearing shells by means of four alloy steel bolts and nuts clamping the cap and rod together. The cap is aligned to the rod by dowels and both parts are precision machined as an assembly. A complete assembly must be ordered, if replacement is necessary.

DANGER
Take extreme caution to adequately support the rod. If care is not taken during the bearing removal process, personal injury and equipment damage could result.

Page 7-6

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual The upper end of the connecting rod carries one pressed in bushing. When the bushing is replaced in the field, extreme care should be used in shrinking the new bushing in place. To change the connecting rod bearings (crankpin end), bar the compressor over until the connecting rod cap rises to its highest point. This will offer easy access to the cap bolts. Support the connecting rod so it will not drop after the cap has been removed. With the connecting rod supported, remove the rod cap and its bearing half. In order to get access to the other bearing half, bar the compressor over so the crankshaft moves slightly away from the connecting rod. Install a new bearing half against the back wall of the connecting rod. The tang recess within the rod should support the bearing until the crankshaft can be moved back into position. Complete the assembly process by putting the other bearing half and rod cap in position and tighten the bolts (using a crisscross pattern) per the torque values given in Table 7-2. The rod cap and crosshead pin must be removed to remove a connecting rod. The crosshead pin can only be removed when the crosshead is in the outermost position. Remove the crosshead pin by removing the retaining ring - external on the MH and internal on the WH on one side of the pin. Push the pin through the crosshead far enough to release the connecting rod. The connecting rod can be eased out of its position when the crankshaft throw is slightly below the innermost position. A connecting rod can be installed by reversing the above procedure.

DANGER
Always support the connecting rod so it can not drop and damage equipment or cause injuries.

The caps and rods are numbered by throw and have their weights stamped on them. Always install rods with this information displayed up.

Crosshead Guide
The fasteners holding the crosshead guide to the base must be torqued uniformly (using a crisscross pattern) to prevent cocking of the guide relative to the base and crankshaft. (See Table 7-2 for torque values). Large side covers on the crosshead guide allow easy access to the crosshead, connecting rod, and rod packing. The crosshead can be removed through these openings without disturbing the cylinder mounting. Lubrication to the crosshead slide areas is handled differently between the MH and WH. On the WH, lube oil is sent via an internal oil path, while on the MH, the oil is supplied through external tubing.

Section 7: Maintenance Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-8/15/07

Page 7-7

Crosshead Removal And Installation


The crosshead is made of ductile iron and has removable top and bottom shoes which have durable bearing material on the sliding surface. Screws and locknuts hold the shoes firmly in place. These must be torqued uniformly to the figure specified in Table 7-2. Like all bearing maintenance, cleanliness is an important factor during the assembly of shoes to the crosshead and placing the crosshead in to the guide. To remove a crosshead proceed as follows: a. Vent compressor clearance bottles, unloaders and all associated gas piping to atmospheric pressure. b. Bar over the compressor so piston is in the outer most position. c. Remove the cylinder head and crosshead guide covers. d. Loosen the balance nut with the crosshead nut wrench. e. Use the piston puller to turn the piston and rod assembly out of the crosshead. Do not use directly on the piston rod. f. After the piston rod is free of the crosshead, remove the balance nut from the rod. g. Prepare the piston rod for moving through the packing. (Section 6.) Pull the piston and rod assembly out far enough to allow the crosshead to be removed. h. Remove the crosshead pin assembly by loosening the center bolt, nut, and retainer plates, switching them from end to end, and torquing the nut to pull the pin free. i. Support the connecting rod and carefully remove the crosshead pin. j. With the pin removed, slowly bar over the compressor to innermost position. Be careful to support the small end of the connecting rod so it cannot score or dent the bottom slide. k. Support the crosshead weight, roll the crosshead the rest of the way over and lift it out. Care should be used to prevent damage to the shoes or slides. To install a crosshead, reverse the above sequence. When using the crosshead installation handles, more care and feel is required. DO NOT USE FORCE as this is the first indication that the job is being done incorrectly and damaged crosshead shoes may result. The correct procedure is to stand to one side of the crosshead guide and feed the crosshead across, attempting to roll it in at short intervals. From the proper position, the crosshead will roll in easily without damage to the shoes.

Page 7-8

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual During the reassembly procedure, the machined face of the balance nut must be toward the crosshead. Check piston end clearances and then make sure that the balance nut is torqued properly (Table 7-2) against the crosshead.
Crossheads and balance nuts are stamped with throw numbers and must be replaced accordingly.

Auxiliary End Cover


The auxiliary end cover is aligned to the base and located by a dowel. Additional dowels in the auxiliary end cover provide proper location for attaching the lube oil pump drive carrier and the force feed lubricator drive carrier.

Drive End Cover


The drive end cover is aligned with the base by two dowel pins. An additional dowel pin is used in the end cover to locate the seal cover. (The oil drain hole must be down.) The seal cover has a close pilot fit in the end cover.
This procedure applies to the old style cover part #620-093-001. The new cover is machined and does not contain the same number of components.

If it is desirable to remove the crankshaft from the base without removing the drive coupling hub, this can be done. First, remove the screws holding the drive end cover. Then support the drive end cover in place on the crankshaft, while lifting out the crank. Remove the screws holding the seal cover. The drive end cover can now be snaked off the crankshaft toward the auxiliary end - leaving the seal cover on the slinger hub. It must be supported to prevent it from moving. Lube Oil Supply (Sump) The oil circulating system is of the pressure, wet sump type, where the lubricating oil supply is carried in the compressor frame and circulated by means of a gear type pump - gear driven from the crankshaft. The pump takes oil from the frame sump, through a suction strainer and delivers it into the lubricating oil header, or manifold on the compressor - the oil first passing through an oil cooler and full flow filter. The precision built, gear type lube oil pump provides full pressure lubrication for all moving parts in the frame. The pump, with its drive gear, can be removed from the base end cover independent of the cover or other gear drives. When installing the pump, observe the following: a. Clean the pump mounting face thoroughly.

Section 7: Maintenance Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-8/15/07

Page 7-9

b. Assemble key, drive gear and lock plate. Tighten screws holding the lock plate to the gear, and fasten with lock wire. Add a slotted nut to the rotor shaft and lock in place with a cotter pin. c. Add gasket for carrier assembly. Slide carrier assembly into place on the end cover, using the dowel to locate. d. Proper gear backlash is given in Table 7-1.

Drive Coupling Hub


The main drive coupling hub has a shrink taper fit on the compressor crankshaft. Additionally, the hub is held in place by a round locknut which threads onto the end of the crankshaft and is locked in place by Nylock setscrews. Figure 7-3 Removing Crankshaft Coupling Hub The coupling hub is removed as follows (Figure 7-3): a. Loosen lock nut (E), after first unlocking its setscrews, until there is 1/8 inch (3mm) of space at dimension (X). b. Mount steel bar (G) in the manner illustrated. Putting a 1-1/ 2-6 UNC tapped hole at its midpoint will permit a standard 1-1/2 UNC cap screw to be used as a jackscrew. c. Tighten nuts on cap screws (H) per torque values given in Table 7-2. d. Torque jackscrew (J) up against the crankshaft per torque values given in Table 7-2. e. Connect a 10,000 psi hand hydraulic pump to the 3/8-inch pipe tap (F) in the hub. f. Operate the hand pump until the hub becomes loose and slides against the lock nut (E). g. Remove the jackscrew and bar arrangement. h. Remove nut (E); the hub can then be lifted off by crane or by hand.

Page 7-10

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual If the proper equipment is not available, the most practical method of removing the coupling hub from the crankshaft is by first removing the crankshaft from the base. The crankshaft and drive end cover plate may now be taken to a suitable work area where the locknut is removed, the hub heated and pressed off the crankshaft. Install the coupling hub onto the crankshaft as follows: a. When at room temperature, push the hub on the crankshaft taper as far as possible. b. Push the crankshaft all the way to one side to take up any thrust clearance that may be present. c. Use gage blocks and shims to fill the space between the coupling and the compressor end cover. d. Remove the amount of shims needed to provide an advance of the hub on shaft of 0.050 inch (1.27 mm). e. Heat the coupling hub and slide it on the shaft until it engages the gage block (with the reduced amount of shims as defined in item d above). f. Hold hub in position until it is cool enough to engage the crankshaft. g. When hub has cooled to room temperature, install lock nuts and Nylock setscrews.

Flexible Drive Coupling


Obtain the most recent version of Service Bulletin SB149 for detailed information on flexible drive couplings. The flexible drive coupling will give you relatively trouble-free service and long life if installed and maintained properly. The coupling was selected based on known loads and operating conditions of the driver and driven equipment. Initial alignment is one of the most critical factors affecting coupling performance. It should be remembered that the couplings are basically in-line devices which are intended to compensate for small amounts of shaft misalignment caused by bearing wear, foundation settling, thermal growth, etc. The more attention paid to initial alignment, the larger the reserve margin that will exist for accomplishing the intended purpose of the coupling. See page 5-4 to 5-5 for the recommended limits. These limits represent about one-third of the total misalignment capacity of the coupling and are generally adequate for most installations. It should be kept in mind that there are definite advantages to be gained from aligning the equipment to more precise values than those shown. The primary advantage is that the reserve margin for accepting misalignment during the life of the machinery is thereby increased. Exceeding the Table 5-6 values for alignment will reduce the service life of the coupling.

Section 7: Maintenance Cameron Compression Systems Superior Compressors

MH/WH-8/15/07

Page 7-11

Another factor to be considered, and one of the most important to good performance is adherence to the bolt torquing recommendations Table 5-6. Loose bolts can induce fretting corrosion, hammering, and pounding which will eventually destroy the bolts and coupling discs.

Troubleshooting Rexnord Couplings


The Rexnord disc coupling is easily inspected. A visual analysis may point to possible drive system problems. Proper evaluation of the disc packs and connecting parts may save considerable maintenance costs and down time. Here are some of the more evident visual inspection criteria and recommended corrective procedures. Consult Superior or your nearest Cameron Compression Aftermarket facility for further assistance.

sections will be very straight and tight. Check the driven equipment loading. If not correctable, contact the Cameron Compression Systems facility immediately.

Cylinder Body
A wide range of cylinder sizes is available. Each cylinder is conservatively designed for very low stress at rated working pressures. Some cylinder bodies are provided with drilled water passages, top and bottom, which connect the water inlet and outlet with the cooling muff, which surrounds the ring travel area of the bore. Whenever the water jacket covers on the cylinder sides are removed to clean out deposits, the drilled passages should also be cleaned out. If the pipe plugs in the crank end of the drilled passages are removed, they should be coated with good waterproof sealer and replaced. This will prevent water seepage into the atmospheric vent space. Lube oil, from the force feed lubricator tubing system, passes through a check valve and into a fitting on the outside should be cleaned out and all steel tubing checked for soundness and tightness. This paragraph does not apply to non-lube operation. Plugs are provided, on all size of cylinders, which can be removed and indicator cocks inserted to take pressure readings, if desired.

Cylinder Head
After removing a cylinder head, examine the o-ring which provides a seal between the cylinder head and the cylinder body for nicks, tears and compression set. Replace as required. The water seal grommets should also be checked. It is recommended that a complete set of o-rings and grommets, for all cylinder sizes used, be kept in stock at all times.

CAUTION
The cylinder head must be properly indexed on the mounting studs so that the valve cut-outs in the head align with valve locations in the cylinder body.

Piston, Piston Rings And Piston Rod


The piston is attached to the piston rod with six capscrews (for most piston sizes) and with four capscrews on remaining sizes. Some pistons have a through rod and nut while others have a one piece piston and rod. See Table 7-2 for proper torque values. Prior to passing the piston rod through the piston rod packing, prepare the rod as described in Section 5. The piston end clearances are adjusted as specified in Section 6 and should be checked with the balance nut torqued to its proper value.

Page 7-14

Cameron Compression Systems

Superior

MH/WH Series Compressor Frame Instruction Manual In order to reduce cylinder bore wear, Superior designed every piston to operate with rider compression rings or rider rings. The rider compression rings and rider rings are not collapsible in the piston groove, thus supporting the piston in the cylinder bore. In non-lubricated applications, the rider compression rings, rider rings and the piston rod packing will wear with time. Replacing these elements before they wear beyond allowable limits will contribute to the successful operation of a non-lubricated cylinder. Contact the Superior Engineering Department for wear limits for your specific cylinder size and application.

Piston Rod Packing


Piston rod packing comes in many different arrangements and designs. This manual will not explain each individual design, but should contain enough detail to allow you to successfully remove, maintain and install the piston rod packing on your compressor. Piston rod packing can be divided into two different groups based on packing function -- wiper packing and pressure packing. (See Figure 7-11 and Figure 7-12). As the piston rod moves through a wiper packing, oil is stripped off the rod and prevented from migrating in to another part of the compressor. The purpose of pressure packing is to prevent the loss of gases from the cylinder along the piston rod. During initial operation, a packing may leak or tend to overheat. This temporary condition occurs while the packing rings are adjusting to the piston rod and packing case. Definite lubrication rates and time intervals for packing wear in are difficult to prescribe. Experience has indicated that these factors may vary widely on different applications. If there is concern about proper lubrication rate, contact the nearest Cameron Compression Systems Aftermarket office.

Ordinarily, packing cases severely worn. Therefore, it is possible to repair piston rod packings by replacing the packing rings only. It is good practice to keep a complete set of packing rings on hand for the packing assemblies of all your cylinders. In order to remove a packing case from a crosshead guide or cylinder, the piston rod must be pulled out through the assembly and cylinder.

Before disassembling a packing case, note all identification marks to ensure components are reassembled properly. If components are not marked, identify each cups position relative to the adjacent cup or flange by numbering or marking them together. While disassembling a packing, record the position of each ring and the direction each ring faces for proper reassembly. Refer to Figure 7-13 for aid in identifying packing rings. Knowing your packing rings is very helpful when ordering new ones.

Page 7-17

The packing cups and glands that are not being replaced by new ones must be soaked and thoroughly cleaned in a non-acid solvent. They should then be blown dry and examined closely for unusual nicks or burrs which might interfere with the rings free floating or contact with the rod. Particular care must be taken with rings made of soft metals and it is very important that wiper rings be handled and installed carefully to prevent damage to the scraping edges. Before installing new packing assemblies, it is important that the piston rod be carefully checked. If the rod is worn, rough, pitted or has a taper, it must be replaced. The bore for the pressure packing nose cup must be cleaned and examined for burrs. If found, burrs should be removed. Also, replace the o-ring in the outside diameter of the wiper packing flange with a new one. A new metallic gasket should be placed in the groove of the pressure packing nose cup. Remove the old metallic gasket with a sharp tool; take care not to damage the groove. Clean the groove thoroughly and install a new gasket. Tap the gasket into the groove with a hard rubber mallet. Do not use a steel hammer as this may damage the sealing surface of the new gasket.

CAUTION
As a general guide, temperatures not tolerated by resting your hand on the packing case flange, after the unit is shut down, indicate to fast of a wear rate. For a lubricated packing, check to see if the lubrication rate is set properly per Section 3.
The rings must be placed in the packing cups in the same position (facing original direction) as the original set.

After installing the packing cases and before connecting the oil tubing to the packing flange (for lubricated packing), hand pump the force feed lubricator (when supplied) until oil runs from one of the disconnected tubes. Connect this tube to the respective hole in the packing flange and continue to pump the lubricator 12 to 15 more strokes. After the piston and rod assembly has been reinstalled, the piston end clearance must be set and the piston rod runout must be checked per Section 5.

Valves
Valve Installation Suction and discharge valves must be installed in the proper direction. This can be determined by first inspecting the valve to see which direction the valve plates move while opening or compressing the springs. Gas will flow in that same direction (Figure 7-14).

Before removing any gas containing part of the compressor or associated gas piping system, vent compressor and system to atmospheric pressure.

The valve cap flange must not contact the cylinder body. Clearance must exist at this point to insure that pressure is applied to the valve and retainer gaskets when the relief cap bolts or nuts are tightened.

To replace a valve in a bottom port (assume that this is a discharge port), proceed as follows: j. Invert retainer. Place valve on top of retainer with valve guard facing out (away from the cylinder). Slip gasket on valve.

Alarms and Shutdowns


Each unit is equipped with a specified complement of electrically or pneumatically operated alarm and/or shutdown devices. These devices are designed to protect the unit in the event of any abnormal operation or any malfunction which may occur. Each device should be checked and reset after each shutdown, or at least once every six months - whichever is sooner, to assure that they are operative. All questionable devices should be replaced. Several safety devices may be employed on compressor units. The most common ones and their recommended set points are listed in Table 7-16.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting is the process of finding operational problems. This section describes the difficulties which may arise during operation of a compressor, the typical origins or sources of these problems and suggestions on how to repair the trouble. The following steps should be followed in all troubleshooting activities: a. Determine what general area is affected - frame, cylinders, lubricating system, etc. b. Analyze the symptoms (clues) to pinpoint the exact location of the problem valves, bearings, etc. c. Replace all defective or damaged parts. d. Return the unit to service and verify that normal operation is resumed. Tables 7-18 through 7-22 list many typical symptoms, causes and corrective measures. It may be necessary to refer to more than one symptom to locate the entire difficulty. The suggested corrective actions are supposed to direct you to those areas most likely to be at fault. However, do not limit your analysis only to those areas found in the table. If symptoms persist, contact your nearest Cameron Compression Systems Aftermarket office for possible field assistance.

Section 10 Ordering Parts


This section provides directions for ordering parts to aid in the assembly of various sections of the compressor. The right is reserved to change the construction or material of any part without incurring the obligation of installing such changes on units already delivered.

Provide the following information when ordering parts:


Part number, part name, and quantity. If a part has no part number then give a complete description and size of the part. Frame and Compressor serial numbers. The full address where the parts are to be shipped. Method of shipment: freight, express, parcel post, etc. Please confirm all verbal orders in writing. Broken or damaged goods should be refused. All items leaving the factory are sound, so any damage incurred has been the result of shipping. Make a complete description of the damage on the freight bill. If this is done, full damage costs can generally be collected from the transportation company.

Using the Parts Listing


This parts list is made to conform to the original construction of the unit, and CCS does not assume the responsibility or obligate itself to maintain this manual to conform to any subsequent changes made on the unit after it leaves the factory. Complete records of all changes and service orders for each unit are maintained at the factory and at the CCS Aftermarket Parts Department in an effort to supply the correct parts. Due to occasional part substitutions in the field and since there is no assurance that parts furnished from the factory are installed, CCS cannot guarantee the furnishing of correct parts. Be aware that this parts list does not include any subsequent parts supplied by the packaging agent of the equipment. Below is an example from the parts list. The Illustration refers to the graphical representation of the assembled parts. The Item refers to the callout used in the illustration. Material is the part number of the item. Description is the name of the part Qty refers to the total number of that part in the assembly/module above it. The UOM refers to the "unit of measure" of the specific part. A module is listed followed by its component parts. . A module is an assemblage of parts that combine to form a specific component of the machine. Module number, description, and quantity are highlighted above the list of parts itemized below it.

CAUTION

Proper length of studs and bolts is important for proper thread engagement. Before removing any studs, measure stud height Multiple modules may be shown on a single illustration. If a detail part is in turn an assembly, its detail parts will be listed fol- from machined surface and posilowing it, and will be index numbered numerically, alphabetically, tion replacement and (if necessary) again numerically (e.g., 1a1, 1a2, 1a3). stud to same height.
