Uptime is critical, but not easy to achieve.
Specialized engineering skills are needed to design piping systems that avoid vibration-induced failures. Rotating machinery also requires advanced engineering analysis to avoid pulsations, resonance, and other vibration problems.
These engineering services apply to greenfield facilities and also when modifying an existing compressor, pump, or the piping system.
This article illustrates the challenges involved in accurately designing compressors to handle ethane and ethylene gases. BETA has the deep experience with refinery applications, including surge control, transients, compressor modifications, and troubleshooting. READ MORE (pdf)
