Enalysis Tip 1.15 - Enalysis Default Flagging Limits for Reciprocating Compressors

July 17, 2020
The Enalysis software provides YELLOW (Warning) and RED (Severe) flags to identify compressor limits and allow for action to be taken to prevent possible damage to the compressor package. Reciprocating compressor packages are restricted to operating under conditions that ensure the mechanical ratings of the compressor are not exceeded. Exceeding one or more limits of the compressor can result in catastrophic failures requiring expensive repairs and resulting in costly downtime. Yellow warning flags indicate that a limit is being approached and red severe flags indicate that a limit has been reached.

Enalysis Tip 1.14 - Compressor Performance Modelling with Enalysis Simulate

June 25, 2020
Enalysis includes a full-featured compressor simulator for all active units enrolled in the software. The simulator uses the same calculations and compressor set-up information already in place within Enalysis to simulate the compressor’s performance at operating conditions that you input. The simulator is available 24/7 to run “What if…?” scenarios and provide instant insight into how your compressor will respond to changing conditions. Clear warnings and flags ensure operation will be safe and stable while allowing you to get the most out of your natural gas producing assets. The simulator works with any make, model or vintage of reciprocating or rotary screw compressor.
