They convert velocity, imparted to the gas by a spinning wheel, to polytropic feet of head. The feet of head multiplied by the density of the gas equals the pressure boost produced by the centrifugal compressor.A reciprocating compressor is a direct volume-reduction machine. The gas is simply squeezed out of a cylinder by a piston and pushed into the discharge line. The molecular weight of the gas does no…
