Reciprocating compressors generate vibrations caused by pulsation-induced forces, mechanical (unbalanced) free forces and moments, crosshead guide forces and cylinder stretch forces. The traditional way of mitigating the vibration and cyclic stress levels to avoid fatigue failure of parts of the reciprocating compressor system (piping, separators, dampers, and compressor) is to stiffen the structures by e.g. the installation of additional pipe supports or steel structures. This is becoming more… CONTINUE READING
