PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATE IN COMPRESSORS AND TURBINES

[OGBS:CEEL 24]

Date: ON REQUEST

Introduction:

The pressure of a gas is important for its transportation, processing and storage.

Gas arriving at a processing plant, or already in the plant, may not be at the correct

Pressure for subsequent operation. If the pressure of the gas is too high it can be

reduced easily. If the pressure of the gas is too low a Compressor must be used to

increase it. A Reciprocating Compressor is classified as a positive displacement machine. That is,

a solid object displaces gas from inside the machine and in so doing compresses the gas

to increase its pressure, this is done by one or more pistons moving in one or more cylinders.

Centrifugal Compressors on the other hand, compress gas by moving the

gas and increasing its speed within the compressor.  The basic principles of operation for Steam and Gas Turbines are also covered in this course.

 

Course Objectives:

*Explain the basic terminology used in describing Compressor and Turbine operations.

*Explain the functions and classifications of Compressors and Turbines in process plants, and identify the different types of prime movers used to power Compressors.

*Identify Suction Scrubbers and explain how they work.

*Explain the basic principles of operation of Reciprocating and Centrifugal Compressors including capacity control methods, control of suction pressure, and automatic shutdown systems.

*Explain the basic principles of operation of Centrifugal Compressors including capacity control methods, surge control, and automatic shutdown systems.

*To teach delegates how to repair, disassemble and assemble, and install centrifugal pumps

*Explain the basic principles of operation of Gas Turbines, Steam Turbines, and

Turbo‑Expanders.
