When I was involved in pre-FEED of well production and gas treatment, one of key deliverable is compressor study. In this post, I want to share you about application range of variety of compressors (reciprocating, compressor, and axial-flow). In addition, I will also share the differences between those compressors.
Application Range of Variety of Compressors
Figure below can estimate application range of variety of compressors. It is a function of inlet flow in actual cubic feet per minute and discharge pressure in psia.
