Significant cost savings by designing compressors to high degree of details early
BPT performs compressor design and rating evaluations with steady state and dynamic simulators.
To enhance accuracy and performance of the compressor capabilities embedded in the industry-standard process simulators, BPT has developed the simulator extension BPT-CODES, which integrates highly accurate centrifugal compressor design and rating calculations into these process simulators.
Compressor curves are traditionally not considered at the conceptual stage of field development since vendor data is normally not available. However, BPT-CODES allows multiple concepts to be evaluated without involvement or input from the compressor vendors.
Process simulations across lifetime of the plant can then be analyzed (without compressor simplifications) to optimize the design in conceptual phases versus:
The following simulator extension Sim-Apps are normally included in such studies:
