The application of centrifugal compressors to the handling of gases in the process industries is of increasing importance. The problems associated with performing tests at the manufacturer’s plant under process conditions and the lack of a universally accepted method of performance correlation are matters of concern. This paper presents a recommended correlation procedure evolved from the review of technical papers embracing aspects of the subject. A program for the free interchange of air and process test data between manufacturer and user is submitted. This recommended procedure and proposed program (1) provides designers with essential information previously unavailable to them, and (2) ultimately benefits the user by the production of higher-performance machines.
