Reciprocating Compressors

Reciprocating compressors are unique pieces of equipment as they contain active components that are moving in rotary as well as linear directions. They also play a vital role in any process that they are employed in. Therefore, a reciprocating compressor’s health must be monitored doing more than just following the usual vibration monitoring rules.

The majority of applications for reciprocating compressors are in the oil and gas industries. Oil refineries use these compressors for processes that require high pressure delivery of essential gases. The natural gas industry also utilizes reciprocating compressors to transport gas via cross country pipelines. These compressors can also be found in chemical plants, refrigeration plants, or air compressors for tooling.
