Centrifugal and axial compressors are susceptible to surge which can cause catastrophic damage to your turbomachinery train.
The Antisurge controller is one of the most critical turbomachinery control applications that protect a compressor from surge by continuously calculating the distance between the compressor’s operating point and its surge limit line. The controller modulates a recycle or blow-off valve to prevent the compressor’s operating point from reaching the surge limit while maintaining other process variables within safe or acceptable limits.
MAS offers field proven control and protection solutions for your compressor based on latest technology controls and algorithms. Our advanced algorithms insure that the compressor operates at peak efficiency, while each stage is protected from potentially catastrophic surge events, per OEM’s specification.
A fact that is sometimes ignored is that anti-surge controls are largely depended on the hardware platform used. For this reason MAS uses only specialized hardware from leading manufactures such as Woodward which ensure not only the needed speed but also the quality and reliability requirements of such systems.
From a single stage air compressor to multi-section side stream refrigeration compressors running in parallel, the CCC standard antisurge control application can be adapted to a wide range of process applications simply through configuration parameters.
