This application note shows Metrix’ solutions for possible issues or problems that occur in reciprocating compressors. A reciprocating compressor is a positive-displacement compressor that uses pistons driven by a crankshaft to deliver gases at high pressure. These machines are very critical to the process. Therefore monitoring the machines is very important. Every year without monitoring is a step closer to unscheduled downtime, which costs a lot more than normal (scheduled) maintenance. The downtime can be more expensive than the reciprocating machine itself in a matter of days.
Read the Metrix application note to see why monitoring reciprocating compressors is so important.
