Common failures of the Hydrogen Compressor

Views:0     Author:Site Editor     Publish Time: 2021-10-25      Origin:Site

With the rapid advances in industrial technology, there are many different types of compressors available, of which hydrogen compressors are a typical example. It is important to note that hydrogen compressors can often fail in the course of their use, which can have a serious impact on the quality and efficiency of chemical production. This article provides an overview of the common failures of Hydrogen Compressors, which we hope will help you.

The basic components of a Hydrogen Compressor

The Hydrogen Compressor construction consists of the basic components, the cylinder components, the plunger components, the cooler components, the safety and protection control system and other ancillary components. The different components play different roles and the Hydrogen Compressor can achieve large pressure ratios through multi-stage compression.


Common faults with Hydrogen Compressors

Damage from external objects

A hydrogen compressor is susceptible to damage if foreign matter is present in the hydrogen gas. The main types of gas contamination in a hydrogen compressor are rust, fine grit or corrosive powder particles, particles that have been dislodged from the compressor airflow path and sometimes even residues left in the compressor cylinder from a previous valve failure. Contaminants such as these can significantly increase the wear of the valve parts, as well as the wear of the cylinder, piston rings and packing rings. During long periods of downtime for maintenance, protect the system with nitrogen to prevent atmospheric corrosion of the inner wall.


Insufficient air discharge

Insufficient discharge volume is compared with the design volume of the compressor, mainly from the following aspects to consider. Firstly, the inlet filter is faulty and clogged with scale, so that the exhaust volume is reduced. Secondly, the cylinder, piston, piston ring wear serious over poor, so that the relevant gap increases, leakage increases, affecting the exhaust volume.


In addition to the above-mentioned situation, the stuffing box seal is not tight, producing leakage to reduce the exhaust volume may also appear in the usual use. In short, when using a hydrogen compressor we need to maintain it regularly and we can tell from the sound of the equipment running whether it is faulty or not.


How can I effectively maintain my hydrogen compressor?

When using the hydrogen compressor in general, we need to control and adjust its working pressure. Pay close attention to the pressure at all levels of the hydrogen compressor during start-up to prevent the compression ratio from being too high. At the same time, the compression ratio at all levels should be adjusted evenly after the start-up is stable, so that the outlet temperature at all levels will be within the designed range and will not burn out the gas valve. Our hydrogen compressors operate with oil-free lubrication. As the market demand for clean, oil-free compressed gas sources has also increased dramatically, this means that you need to ensure the purity of the hydrogen being compressed and that the presence of particles is important.


In the chemical industry, hydrogen is usually compressed to a high pressure in order to facilitate the normal conduct of chemical reactions with hydrogen as a raw material, which requires the use of a hydrogen compressor with hydrogen as the main transport medium.
