Elliott Launches Compressor Performance Prediction Tool
By DJ Slater03 September 2020
Elliott Group has released a compressor online performance prediction tool specially designed for Elliott compressors. The web-based software tool calculates compressor performance to predict trends and assess future performance.
The software equips operators to monitor compressor performance over time. It is custom programmed with “as sold” compressor aerodynamic performance specifications. It also calculates the compressor’s output parameters based on a specific set of performance data entered by the operator.
“Our new prediction software tool gives operators the compressor-specific data they need to make important operating decisions,” said Klaus Brun, Elliott’s director of research and development. “It allows them to evaluate, track, and compare performance parameters, pinpoint potential performance issues, and analyze compressor behavior for a new or changing gas stream.”
Operators can also use the software to explore alternative compressor operating scenarios including increased capacity, process optimization, gas composition or feedstock changes, declining fields, seasonal variations and off-design production. It is available as an annual subscription for new and existing Elliott compressors.
