Casing Connections

The casing inlet and outlet are flanged, for connection to the user's piping system, with the exception of some rectangular inlet connections as already mentioned. Communication with the manufacturer must take place concerning allowable forces and moments. While this is recommended for all types of compressors, the axial is a relatively small machine with disproportionately large piping, which results in the inherent potential for large forces and moments.

The balance chamber leakoff line, while recommended to be held within the confines of the compressor casing may well turn out to require some user piping. There are some situations where the desire for keeping open space around the compressor for maintenance may require compromise on the part of the user. The balance of the connections on the axial are for lube oil and other auxiliary equipment not different from that found on other compressors.
