The reciprocating compressor’s flexibility in handling wide capacity variations, and generating high pressures independent of the density of the gas, makes it a vital component in today’s energy markets – upstream, midstream, and downstream. Reciprocating compressors are expected to become even more important in the near future as hydrogen finds applications as an energy carrier in transport, industry, and households. Especially for hydrogen applications, reciprocating compressors have advantages over turbocompressors due to their higher efficiency, higher flowrates and higher pressure ratios.
The EFRC has carried out a comprehensive compressor reliability study to investigate users’ experience with several types of compression equipment regarding versatility, robustness and reliability. The focus was on those aspects that industry had indicated are most critical with respect to unscheduled shutdowns.
