In oil and gas applications where centrifugal compressors play a central role, their availability is essential for continued production; typically the loss of a day’s revenue can far exceed the capital value of the machine. Performing more rigorous inspection and testing prior to accepting delivery of centrifugal compressors can reveal a fairly large percentage of mechanical and performance failures. This paper is devoted to illustrate the crucial importance of centrifugal compressors testing within the petroleum industry with a special attention to the performance test and complete-unit test.
