Compressor

a machine used to increase the

pressure of a gas by decreasing its

volume.

Types of compressors

1. Reciprocating compressor

- that is built in sizes as large as 5000

to 10000 cfm piston displacement with

pressure range up to 1000 atm and vacua

to 0.50 in.Hg abs.

2. Rotary compressors w/o liquid seal

- that built in sizes as large as 50000

cfm and are suitable for moderate vacua

not less that 15 in.Hg abs and for

moderate pressures of 5 to 20 psi.

3. Rotary compressors w/ liquid seals

- that are built in sizes up to 5000 cfm

and are suitable for ratios of compression

reflected in vacuum pump service to 28

in.Hg and positive pressure service to 75

psig.

4. centrifugal compressors

- that are built in capacities of 500 to

100,000 cfm and deliver pressures as high

as 150 psi where 10 to 15 stages would be

required.

5. Axial flow compressors

are compressors which extended the

field of axial flow fans by the use of multi-

staging so that pressures of 75 psi can be

developed with a 10 or 25 stage unit.

Capacities range form 2000 to 100,000

cfm.

6. Hydraulic jet compressors

are primarily employed for vacuum

pump service requiring 1 to 4 in.Hg abs.

pressure and capacities of 1000 cfm at

suction conditions.

7. Vapor jet compressors

are used for both exhauster and blower

service with steam as the usual actuating

fluid.

Performance of Reciprocating Air

Compressor

1. P, V and T

relations

B. 4.63 m3/s D. 4.98 m3/s

A single-stage acting air compressor,

running at 5 rev/s, has air intake of 22.8

liters at atmospheric pressure and 25oC. If

it compresses 5.7 liters in accordance with

the compression law PV1.2=C, calculate

the temperature of the air at the end of

compression.

A. 120 oC C. 115 oC

B. 110 oC D. 125 oC

2. Piston Displacement

- it is the volume

displaced by the

piston as it moves

from top dead center

to bottom dead

center.

- If given No. of cylinder and no. of piston

action:

The bore and stroke of an air

compressor are 276 mm and 164 mm

respectively. If the piston displacement is

0.039 m3/s, what is the operating speed of

the compressor?

A. 238.49 rpm C. 338.49 rpm

B. 261.54 rpm D. 361.54 rpm

3. Volumetric efficiency

- is the ratio of the

actual gas drawn-in at

intake condition to the

volume displacement.

The initial condition of air in an

compressor is 100 kPa and 25oC and

discharges air at 450 kPa. The bore and

stroke are 276 mm and 186 mm

respectively with 8% clearance running at

6rps. Find the volume of air at suction.

A. 203.29 m3/hr C. 261.25 m3/hr

B. 303.29 m3/hr D. 361.25 m3/hr

4. Capacity of

compressor

- is the actual

volume of gas

deliverd as measured

at intake pressure

and temperature.

5. Actual volumetric efficiency

- it is usually less than the clearance volumetric

efficiency because of the number of factors such as

pressure drop at the valves, heat transfer between

surrounding and device, and the presence of residual

gas in the cylinder at the end of the delivery stroke.

6. Compressor work
