Performance of Compressors


The primary requirement of any compressor selection is that the compressor must meet the operating conditions required by the system in which it is installed. To achieve this, it is first necessary to understand the performance characteristics or “behavior” of the various compressors; secondly, to develop the actual system behavior; and thirdly, to match the compressor to the system such that all operating points are covered.
