EFRC Vibration criteria

Horizontal compressor

EFRC (the European Forum for Reciprocating Compressors)  has within their guidelines, defined criterias for vibration assessment of reciprocating compressors. Measurements of vibrations at the main parts of the compressor individually may only give a rough indication of the stress levels. In order to enable a more holistic and reliable vibration assessment of the compressor, you … Read moreEFRC Vibration criteria

Good vibrations at OTD

Erna Solberg

Erna Solberg, Prime Minister of Norway pays extra good attention when Even Lund and Håvard Johnsen, Momentum Technologies, demonstrates the importance of vibration damping for a safer oil and gas industry. The 18th Offshore Technology Days (OTD), opened today at Sotra in Bergen. Full of expectations, Momentum Technologies, took place at the stand in the … Read moreGood vibrations at OTD

Vibration problems?

Resonance

Vibrations may be triggered from a variety of sources. When vibrations coincidently match the eigenfrequencies of a structure, resonance occure which can end up in catastrophic result. Understanding and controlling this amplification factor is the key to a safe and healthy process plant. A simple clamp on damper can do the job of reducing over 90% … Read moreVibration problems?
