Webinario: What is my risk of surge?

New Tools to Prevent Centrifugal Compressor Surge

Conventional dynamic surge analyses have been greatly improved by recent advances in simulation technology.​ New analysis tools are capable of determining if multiple compressors in series or parallel will experience damaging surge during operation and severe fast-stop upset conditions.


Register today for this free webinar, sponsored by Turbomachinery International Magazine, where BETA's experts will introduce these new techniques and tools, along with detailed case histories illustrating their power in creating a safe and robust design. 

The webinar will help answer the following:

  • Do I need a hot gas recycle system?
  • What is the optimal recycle valve size?
  • Will the control system avoid surge on ESD or fast stop?
  • How do my compressors in parallel or series interact?
  • Can one unit surge the other?
  • Will reciprocating compressors nearby reduce the surge margin?
  • When do I need to perform a dynamic surge analysis?

Free tools will be provided exclusively to webinar attendees, helping them decide when a dynamic surge analysis is required and when it is not.
