The benchmark guide for compressor technology pros

You don't have to scour piles of technical literature for compressor answers any longer. The Compressor Handbook compiled by Paul Hanlon packs all the answers on design procedures, practical application, and maintenance of compressorsstraight from top experts on these widely used machines. You get details on everything from fundamentals and theory to advanced applications, techniques, and today's materials — including sought-after data on compressors that inflate tires, spray paint, increase the density of natural gas, or perform any of a myriad of other important industrial and day-to-day functions. This fully illustrated Handbook can help you:

Understand the structure and operation of compressors of all types

Design or select compressors for any use, from power-cleaning to chemical processes

Follow step-by-step design procedures for fewer errors and optimized results

Specify leading-edge materials, components, and lubricants

Operate and maintain all types of compressors at peak efficiency

Answer questions on and provide designs for ancillary and auxiliary equipment

Invent new applications for compressor technology

Easily find tabular data on gas properties, efficiency curves, compression ratios, and horsepower, plus definitions of nomenclature

Synopsis:

This handbook is a guide to design procedures, components, application guidelines and fundamental and practical compressor theory. It features diagrams of all major compressor types, and the engineering section covers gas properties, efficiency curves, compression rations and horsepower.
