Reducers used in Piping Industry: A short literature

Pipelines are not of uniform size and there is requirement of reducing or expanding the lines depending on process requirement or availability of material. Here comes the importance of a special pipe fitting called Reducers. Reducers are most extensively used…

Reciprocating Compressors: A Brief Presentation

In a reciprocating compressor, a volume of gas is drawn into a cylinder; it is trapped, and compressed by piston and then discharged into the discharge line. The cylinder valves control the flow of gas through the cylinder; these valves…
