Expect More: How Advanced Materials Can Enhance Reciprocating Compressor Performance
October 28, 2021
Efficient, reliable reciprocating compressor performance depends heavily on the appropriate application of materials for critical components such as packing and piston rings. Gas types, pressures, temperatures, humidity levels, speeds, lubrication conditions, etc., all require consideration. Over the years, specialized composite materials made from high-end polymers and additives have been developed to address the challenges of dynamic gas sealing at very high speeds, high pressures or other arduous conditions.
This webinar will provide insight into the materials science associated with the development, testing and application of advanced polymer composites for reciprocating compressors, including non-lubricated applications. Particular focus will be given to key material properties and selection criteria, and how the latest advances enhance durability and effectiveness.
