How to calculate primary and secodary forces - reciprocating compressor

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sandip,

There are machine texts and foundation books on supporting vibrating
machinery that provide generic formulas for various types and arrangement
of piston driven engines however the liabilities are too great to rely on
these values.  To protect yourself it is best to get this information from
the compressor manufacturer.  Recip vendors are normally very good at this
whereas it can be like pulling teeth to get this information from
centrifugal vendors.  One key question to ask the vendor is what are the
maximum anticipated forces during the life of the machine.  The centrifugal
vendors normally tell you their machines are perfectly balanced which may
be true when purchased but not after a couple of years of continuous
running.

Please give me idea about how to calculate primary and secondary forces for
reciprocating compressors.
thanks
