Compressors, oil field, gas field, reservoir, dynamic compressors, kinetic compressors
Compressors are mechanical apparatus that raise the oil and gas pressure and allow it to be conveyed from the production site, through the supply chain, to the reservoir or the customers. Compressors are grouped into Positive displacement and Dynamic or Kinetic compressors.
[...] The air pressure drops as the air in the tank is used up, and this make the air pressure drop to the pre-set level, which restarts the motor, and the compressor recommences its functions (Guo, and Ghalambor, 2014). Rotary/ vane compressors. Ro-Flo Compressor LLC is a major manufacturer of rotary compressors and its components. HOERBIGER is another Rotary/ vane compressors parts producer. The company has incorporated minimum-pressure valves, intake controls, oil and airline valves and control systems. Rotary compressors lack pistons and crankshafts since they are not reciprocating in nature. The major components are vanes, screws, and scrolls. The rotary compressors are categorised under vane type-lobe type, screw type, and scroll type. [...]

[...] The desiccant should be added two to three times annually. iii. Membrane type dryers Membrane type dryers permit water vapour to pass through the dryer membrane faster than any other gas and hence reducing its content in the gas stream (Guo, and Ghalambor, 2014). The major components of a reciprocating compressor Ariel Corporation is a major producer of separable reciprocating gas compressors. The company produces compressors for extraction up to delivery of natural gas from the well to the end user. [...]
[...] A centrifugal compressor is primarily used for stationary, continuous transport of gas and are used in processing and transmission of oil and gas. Compressors employed in the gas and oil industry, are classified into six groups matching their intended service. The compressors are: i. Flash gas compressors Employed in oil handling amenities to compress gas flashed from a hydrocarbon liquid after the oil flows from a high pressure to a low-pressure separator. The compressors handle low flow rates and give out high compression ratios. ii. Gas lift compressors Used when gas compression and lifting is required. [...]
[...] Cooling below after sanction gas returns the gas evaporating temperature of is necessary and is accomplished through the use of airflow. Most compressor manufacturers use the head cooling fan to offer additional compressor cooling. For air-cooled compressors, air from the air-cooled condenser is used to give the required cooling to the compressor. However, if the air-cooled condenser and the compressor are not located next to each other, then, a fan must be used to pass cool air over the compressor's body. [...]
