You may be a Compressor Expert without knowing it! In the below graph, which stages have performance issues?
Yep, the Stage 1 performance indicator was low the entire month of August, and the Stage 2 indicator was low for a few days in September.
Second question… Is the problem caused by a suction valve or discharge valve?
This indicator is flat when a suction valve is damaged but will increase with a damaged discharge valve. The compressor mechanic found bad discharge valves as this graph predicted. Super easy to do when your Scada system pulls these indicators from Encline’s low cost Edge Device. Contact us today to try it!
