To start, NEA works closely with customers to establish new requirements, a schedule and a budget. It is important that the current compressor system undergoes a thorough analysis of its performance data, to fully understand the root cause of the problem or damage.
Following, NEA engineers utilize the cutting-edge compressor design tool, KO3, to run a detailed verification analysis on the compressor and its accessories. KO3 allows NEA engineers to examine, in detail, the current situation and all possible alternatives feasible to accomplish the customer’s goals. In addition to the KO3 technical report, with the NEA Revamp Evaluation Matrix, each revamp possibility is checked for verification according to cost, efficiency and reliability. The result of such an engineering study is a complete technical and commercial catalogue with all possible solutions for a compressor revamp according to specific customer requirements.
The intensive engineering in advance pays off. This way NEA always provides the technically safest and economically most reasonable solution.
NEA’s portfolio allows to review changes to gas properties, pressure levels, and/or other process conditions, thus resulting in a reapplication of the compressor and/or the compressor system to meet new customer specified parameters. NEA engineers are experienced in handling a variety of reapplication projects, including:
Revamping allows for a shorter turnaround time, extended equipment life with improved materials and design, and is a lower cost alternative to the purchase of new equipment.
An increase or decrease in the capacity yield can result in reducing rated throughput for the purpose of gaining mechanical efficiency, or increasing throughput capacity to gain production capability. Techniques are:
These techniques allow for the reciprocating compressors to meet a variety of different gas flow conditions through the use of unloaded compressor cylinder ends and/or clearance pockets while minimizing power consumption.
