CNG compressor design.xlsx



A diaphragm compressor (also known as a membrane compressor) is a variant of the conventional reciprocating compressor. The compression of gas occurs by the movement of a flexible membrane, instead of an intake element. The back and forth movement of the membrane is driven by a rod and a crankshaft mechanism. Only the membrane and the compressor box come in contact with the gas being compressed. Diaphragm compressors are used for hydrogen and compressed natural gas (CNG) as well as in a number of other applications.

Thank you for your début calculation. I have awarded you a free 3 month XLC pro subscription by way of thanks. I am a little lost in the calculation and I wondered if it would benefit from some explanatory notes. This may be because this is not my specialist area. Thanks again. [ADMIN]
