Identifying damage in reciprocating air compressors
Monroig, Julio H.
We used a parametric analysis for a reciprocating air compressor to determine its working conditions. We also connected measuring devises which allowed us to determine the real performance of our compressor. From this point we were able to simulate the most common damage or failures and analyze how these parameters vary according to those delations created under its normal operation. We also created a computer program based on the compressor's real performance, which estimates its operating parameters with the minimum information available for the compressor's operator.
