Solution Highlights

CPI 192 material packing was selected for this application and the packing cooling system was removed. The MTBF increased by 49%. CPI removed the cooling system in 31 compressors after this upgrade in this plant.

Upgrading to CPI polymer alloy packing rings:

Eliminates the potential safety risk of gas leakage into the cooling system

Problems with re-cutting O-ring grooves during reconditioning are eliminated

Results in more reliable packing performance and life

Avoids condensation due to the water and gas temperature differential

Saves water – up to 15 l/min (4 gal/min)
