Pump and compressor drivers form a critical part of pumping and compression systems. Decisions made on which ones to use have far-reaching and long-lasting implications for the entire life of the pipeline system. The selection of drivers entails many aspects such as the following:

  • power size and range

  • performance characteristics (e.g., ambient conditions, altitude)

  • compatibility with driven equipment

  • fuel source available

  • starting requirements such as torque

  • reliability and availability

  • other drivers already installed at the same site or other sites

  • maintenance support available

  • auxiliary systems that need to be provided

  • drivers available from driven equipment supplier

  • physical dimensions and weight

  • environmental requirements, especially for emissions

  • need for sound control
