About This Item

 

Full Description

This standard covers the minimum requirements for reciprocating compressors and their drivers for use in petroleum, chemical, and gas industry services for handling process air or gas with either lubricated or non-lubricated cylinders.

Compressors covered by this standard are moderate to low speed machines. Also included are related lubricating systems, controls, instrumentation, intercoolers, aftercoolers, pulsation suppression devices, and other auxiliary equipment. Compressors not covered by this standard are (a) integral gas-engine-driven compressors, (b) compressors with single-acting trunk-type (automotive-type) pistons that also serve as crossheads, and (c) either plant or instrument-air compressors that discharge at a gauge pressure of 9 bar (125 psig) or below.

Requirements for packaged high-speed reciprocating compressors for oil and gas production services are covered in ISO 13631.

Microsoft Excel data sheets for use with this standard are available for immediate download.
