Arc's proficiency with reciprocating compressors resides with sour gas units and their fatigue and fracture behaviour. We have analyzed incidents involving compressor frames, bearings, rods, valves, and wear coatings. We have also inspected numerous engine failures due to pistons, bearings, crankshafts, exhaust, and bolting issues. Arc has experience with centrifugal and screw compressors.
To complete these investigations, Arc often draws upon specialists with expertise in vibrations and acoustics, finite element analysis, operations, and mechanical overhaul.
