Optimized Antisurge Control Simulator helps users protect their investment in critical compression turbomachinery
(June 12, 2015)

Emerson Process Management and Compressor Controls Corporation (CCC) collaborated to develop the Optimized Antisurge Control Simulator, a demonstration tool which provides a window into the operation of compression turbomachinery.

To producers in a variety of process control industries, compressors are among their most critical and costly assets. An average-sized compressor such as one applied in a natural gas compressor station costs millions to install. A surge event ─ a fast, high-energy flow reversal ─ may damage the compressor, and the resulting downtime could cost the gas producer up to $1 million per day. The simulator will show producers how to avoid costly failures, protect and increase the efficiency of their investment.

For more details, watch a video, download a flyer, or contact an Emerson sales office near you to schedule a demonstration.
