Terminology

## Finding Ratio of Compression (RC) Example 1: Ps = 200 psig, Pd = 600 psig

Rc = 600 psig + 14.7 = 614.7 psia = 2.863 200 psig + 14.7 = 214.7 psia

## Example 2: Ps = 20 psig, Pd = 600 psig

Rc = 600psig + 14.7 = 614.7psia = 17.7 20psig + 14.7 = 34.7psia

Note: If we had not converted to psia the ratio would have been 30:1.

Terminology

Clearance Volume = The volume remaining in the compressor cylinder at the end of the discharge stroke. Normally expressed as a % of piston displacement. Displacement = Area of piston X length of stroke X # of strokes per minute. For DA compressors, the displacement on the CE is less than the HE due to the rod area. Normally expressed in cubic feet per minute or CFM.

COMPRESSION SYSTEMS

Terminology

Capacity

(or flow rate) Volume of gas compressed and delivered at specified conditions of temperature & pressure measured at the compressor inlet. Usually expressed as volume/unit of time - cubic feet per minute or cubic feet per day. Refers to the heat exchanger design 30F approach means the cooler will cool the gas to 130when ambient temperature is 100F.

Swept Volume = The volume swept by the piston during the forward and/or backward stroke. = Compressor speed is not a factor. = Normally expressed in cubic inches and calculated as follows:
Swept Volume HE = Area of Piston X Stroke in Inches Swept Volume CE = (Area of Piston - Area of Rod) X Stroke in Inches Total Swept Volume = (2 X Area of Piston - Area of Rod) X Stroke In Inches

INTEGRAL ENGINECOMPRESSORS

The external rod load of a reciprocating compressor is a calculation considering the unit in a static state. The calculation for deriving the ERL is: ERL = PD(HA) - PS(CA) where:
PD = Discharge Pressure at the cylinder flange PS = Suction Pressure at the cylinder flange HA = Head End surface area of the piston CA = Crank End surface area of the piston

The internal rod load is often noted as the internal gas rod load of a reciprocating compressor and the terms are synonymous. The IRL is a dynamic rod load calculation based upon the internal gas pressures within the cylinder bore. These gas pressures take into account the dynamic pressure drop characteristics found across the valves and gas passages. The IRL is calculated through 360 rotation of the crankshaft with the highest values being used.

The net rod load is considered a dynamic rod load rating. The NRL is the sum of the IRL calculation and the inertia loads of the reciprocating weights. The NRL is calculated through 360 rotation of the crankshaft with the highest values being used. 38

Area Classification
Class I: Flammable gases and vapors Within this class are four groups in order of explosive potential This is where most gas compression will be found. Group A: Acetylene Group B: Hydrogen and other gases Group C: Ethylene and other gases Group D: Acetone, Butane, Ethane, Methane, and other gases Class II: Combustible dusts Group E: Metallic dusts Group F: Carbonaceous dusts (e.g.coal) Group G: Agricultural, Chemical, and Plastic dusts Class III: Combustible filings and fibers
45

COMPRESSION SYSTEMS

Area Classification
The NEC(National Electric Code) and CEC(Canadian Electric Code) recognize two further divisions distinguished by the likelihood of the material being Present Division 1: Areas where hazardous materials may be present under normal operating conditions. Intrinsically Safe: A system comprising of equipment and interconnecting wiring in which any spark or thermal effect in any part of the system intended for use in the hazardous location is incapable under prescribed conditions of causing ignition of the test gas mixture. Division 2: Areas where hazards arise only as the result of leaks, ventilation, or other unexpected breakdowns. As a rule of thumb the probability of the presence of explosive materials must be less than 1% for an area to be assigned to Division 2. Non-incendive Circuit: A circuit in which any spark or thermal effect, that may occur in normal use, is incapable of causing an ignition of the test gas mixture.

## NEMA Enclosure Standards

NEMA 12 enclosures are intended for indoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against dust, falling dirt and dripping non-corrosive liquids. They are not intended to provide protection against conditions such as internal condensation. NEMA 3 enclosures are intended for outdoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against windblown dust, rain, sleet, and external ice formation. They are not intended to provide protection against conditions such as internal condensation or internal icing. NEMA 3R enclosures are intended for outdoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against falling rain; and to be undamaged by the formation of ice on the enclosure. They shall meet rain entry, external icing, and rust-resistance design tests. They are not intended to provide protection against conditions such as dust, internal condensation, or internal icing.

## NEMA Enclosure Standards

NEMA 4 enclosures are intended for indoor or outdoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against windblown dust and rain, splashing water, and hose-directed water. They are not intended to provide protection against conditions such as internal condensation or internal icing. NEMA 4X enclosures are intended for indoor or outdoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against corrosion, windblown dust and rain, splashing water, and hose-directed water. They are not intended to provide protection against conditions such as internal condensation or internal icing. (Must specify 304 or 316 material, 304 will be standard)

## NEMA Enclosure Standards

NEMA 7 enclosures are for indoor use in locations classified as Class I, Groups A, B, C, or D, as defined in the National Electrical Code. NEMA 7 enclosures shall be capable of withstanding the pressures resulting from an internal explosion of specified gases, and contain such an explosion sufficiently that an explosive gas-air mixture existing in the atmosphere surrounding the enclosure will not be ignited. Enclosed heat generating devices shall not cause external surfaces to reach temperature capable of igniting explosive gas-air mixture in the surrounding atmosphere. Enclosures shall meet explosion, hydrostatic, and temperature design tests. Note: If the NEMA 7 enclosure will be used in an outdoor environment a NEMA 7, 4 enclosure can be specified for weather proof.
