Guidelines Aim for Better High-Speed Compressor Systems

With the growing use of high-speed separable reciprocating compressors in natural gas storage and transmission applications, the Gas Machinery Research Council (GMRC) identified the need for better guidelines and practices to govern the specification, design and application of this class of compression equipment. A 2½-year research project yielded the GMRC Guideline for High-Speed Reciprocating Compressor Packages for Natural Gas Storage and Transmission Applications that was released in October 2013. GMRC, a subsidiary of the Southern Gas Association (SGA), is a not-for-profit research corporation. As the guideline developed, a need for better reciprocating compressor torsional vibration
