Compressors R&D Center

SIAD Macchine Impianti has an R&D center dedicated to process and PET compressors; the activities of the center are essentially aimed at optimizing their operation through:

Engineering services:

  • Pulsation, acoustical, torsional, bending analysis.
  • Finite elements structural verification.
  • Fluid-dynamic verification Fatigue calculation
  • Measurement and verification of vibration, ultrasonic, thermography, radiography
  • Chemical, physical and metal particles oil analysis.

3D modelling, static elastic Fem analysis, infinite life fatigue analysis 
Elastic bodies motion of the complete frame, static elasto-plastic Fem analysis
Multiaxial fatigue analysis with the algorithm of Dang Van or Brown – Miller – Morrow

API 618 reciprocating compressors: Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Software
The gas paths are studied by the computer with most advanced CFD software with the aim to reach at the same time a small clearance volume, for a greater volumetric efficiency, and large and well profiled passages for low pressure losses.
