Elliott Group has released a new Compressor Online Performance Prediction Tool (OPPT) specially designed for Elliott compressors. The web-based software tool calculates compressor performance to predict trends and assess future performance.
The new OPPT software equips operators to monitor compressor performance over time. Factory configured for a specific Elliott compressor or compressor train, the OPPT is custom programmed with ‘as sold’ compressor aerodynamic performance specifications. The OPPT 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 R&D. “It allows them to evaluate, track, and compare performance parameters, pinpoint potential performance issues, and analyse compressor behaviour for a new or changing gas stream.”
Operators can also use the OPPT software to explore alternative compressor operating scenarios including increased capacity, process optimisation, gas composition or feedstock changes, declining fields, seasonal variations and off-design production.
With Elliott’s OPPT software, operators can collect and analyse their compressor performance details to make data-driven decisions, improve efficiency, and assess future performance. It is available for new and existing Elliott compressors by annual subscription.
