Abstract:

This report summarizes the initial production test of the 4-cfm, 3000-psig reciprocating compressor. The purpose of the test was to determine conformance of the compressor to required performance characteristics. The results showed that most equipment failures were encountered during low-temperature operation and during 1000 hours of endurance testing. The most critical failures were those of the timer, rubber angle-drive coupling, and manual reservoir bypass valve, and replacement of the dehydrator filter cartridge. It is concluded that the compressor meets the test objectives with the exceptions noted.
