The quest for plant availability: Achieving improved compressor reliability and efficiency in downstream operations
Plants in the downstream industry require a great degree of operational availability, equipment reliability and efficiency: These factors are crucial for end users, as thousands of complex and intricate processes are operating in parallel – many of them are driven and safeguarded by compression technologies.
Uniformly, reliability is a universal maxim, and this holds particularly true for handling and compressing challenging gases processed in such plants. In fact, there is a direct, vital link between the reliability of compressor equipment designed for and used in these processes and the availability of the plant.
With a focus on different chemical/petrochemical, syngas and LNG applications our speaker Ulrich Schmitz will introduce to the listeners how centrifugal compression technologies such as integrally geared can be designed and employed reliably to perform the key process challenges of the industry, while also contributing to an efficient operation.
