## Reciprocating Compressor Power Calculation Part 2 (Three-Stage Compression)

In previous post, I shared how to calculate reciprocating compressor power if number of compression stage is two. In this post, I will use the same problem/example to estimate reciprocating compressor power if number of compression stage is 3. In the end of this posting series, I will show you the difference of each stage and to see how important to determine number of compression stages.

The method used to calculate reciprocating compressor is the same, whether it is two-stage, three-stage, or four-stage. There are several steps which is repetitive. Read More

## Application Range of Variety of Compressors and Compressor Selection

When I was involved in pre-FEED of well production and gas treatment, one of key deliverable is compressor studyIn 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.
