Best Practices in Compressor Mounting10 February 2011 by Engineered Industrial Products
Large reciprocating compressors are found in many industries, including gas, oil and petrochemical production, transmission and storage. Operationally they generate very large gas and inertia forces. Their mounting systems must manage and transmit weight loads, vertical and horizontal gas and inertia loads, vertical anchor bolt forces, and the forces of thermal growth. The effectiveness and integrity of their installation is therefore crucial.
This paper addresses the best practices related to installation techniques, component design, and materials used in the mounting of large reciprocating compressors including equipment preparation, foundation and mat, anchor bolts and sleeves, and grouting and chocking.
