The benchmark guide for compressor technology pros
You don't have to scour piles of technical literature for compressor answers any longer. The Compressor Handbook compiled by Paul Hanlon packs all the answers on design procedures, practical application, and maintenance of compressors—straight from top experts on these widely used machines.
operates globally as a leading supplier of compressors and automated solutions to the refrigeration and air conditioning industry. The Danfoss product range is among the most complete in the world. It is used within a number of business areas, such as household-, commercial-, food retail and industrial refrigeration as well as air conditioning, products for the wholesale refrigeration market and automation in various specific industrial sectors.
The term magnetic bearing refers to devices that provide stable suspension of a rotor. Because
of the contact-less motion of the rotor, magnetic bearings offer many advantages for various
applications. Commercial applications include compressors, centrifuges, high-speed turbines,
energy-storage flywheels, high-precision machine tools, etc.
Magnetic bearings are a typical mechatronic product. Thus, a great deal of knowledge is
necessary for its design, construction and operation.
The late 1940s through the 1950s saw rapid technological advancement and the introduction of rotating equipment. Larger and higher horsepower equipment came into use. This brought about the need for more “power-dense” flexible couplings with greater misalignment, which had to be accommodated. Around this time the fully crowned gear spindle (Figure 1 S A ) was developed and introduced into the steel industry. Also during this period, the use of the gas turbine in industrial applications (generators, compressors) was becoming popular.
The Andehydration is an important process in offshore gas processing. The gas is dehydrated offshore to avoid dangers associated with pipeline transport and prossing of wet gas. The problems include corrosion, water condensation and plugs created by ice or gas hydrates.
