Type of Compressor Used in Ships

Compressors can be classified according to the principle of compression:

  1. Dynamic compressor 
  2. Positive displacement compressor

    Type of Compressor Used in Ships

    1.Dynamic compressor

    Increasing the pressure of gases by imparting to it the kinetic energy, which is converted into pressure energy by a diffuser.

    Air is forced into space and energy is added to it by increasing the velocity. Velocity will decrease by volute casing or diffuser. Thus loss of velocity will cause the pressure to increase at the discharge side of the compressor.

    This type of compressor where the gas  moved into the compressor is acted upon, moved through the compressor and discharged without interruption of the flow at any point in the process (under continuous mode)

    These are multi-blade compressors and are further subdivided into:

    • A.Centrifugal compressor 
    • B.Jet compressor 
    • C.Axial Flow

    A.Centrifugal Air Compressor

    A high peripheral velocity is imparted to the gases being compressed by the blades of the impeller which rotate at a speed of 3000 to 27000 rpm to produce high-pressure discharge or by converting angular momentum imparted by the rotating impeller (dynamic displacement)

    The centrifugal force developed in this way partially compress the gases. Further compression occurs in diffuser by reducing its velocity which is depending upon the direction of gases flow at outlet from impeller compressor which can be radial or axial compressor

    The centrifugal force utilized by the centrifugal compressor is the same force utilized by the centrifugal pump. The air particles enter the eye of the impeller then is thrown against the casing 

    type dynamic compressor Centrifugal Air Compressor

    The air becomes compressed as more and more air is thrown out to the casing by the impeller blades

    The air is pushed along the volute casing cause pressure of the air to increase  

    The impeller blades curve forward, which is opposite to the backward curve used in typical centrifugal liquid pumps or can use a variety of blade orientation including both forward and backward curves.

    There may be several stages to a centrifugal air compressor, as in the centrifugal pump, and the result would be the same; a higher pressure would be produced. 

    The air compressor is used to create  compressed or  high pressure air  for a variety  of uses.   Some of its  uses are pneumatic control devices, pneumatic sensors, pneumatic valve operators, pneumatic motors, and starting air for diesel engines. 

    However, centrifugal compressors are now most frequently used for medium volume and medium pressure air delivery. One advantage of a centrifugal pump is the smooth discharge of the compressed air.  Diesel Engine Turbochargers

    B.Jet Compressor

    In jet compressor it’s driving vapour attains a high supersonic velocity in a Laval nozzle and then mixed with the gases to be compressed in a mixing chamber and leading it at high velocity to the diffuser where kinetic energy is converted into pressure energy

    C.Axila Flow

    type dynamic compressor Axila Flow

    2.Positive displacement compressor

    It operates by volumetric displacement by means of increasing the pressure of gasses by decreasing its volume. It can be achieving by first, traps a volume of air in the cylinder then displace it into small spaces.

    This type of compressor considered under intermittent mode of compressor where is cyclic in nature, in that a specific quantity of gas is ingested by the compressor, acted upon, and discharged, before the cycle is repeated

    It can be subdivided into;

    • A.Rotary compressor The gas volume changes due to rotation in the cylinder of rotary vanes of an eccentrically place rotor. 
    • B.Reciprocating or piston compressor The gas volume changes due to the action of one or two reciprocating pistons moving axially in cylinder.

    A.Rotary Compressor

    Rotary air compressors are positive displacement compressors. The most common rotary air compressor is the single stage helical or spiral lobe oil flooded screw air compressor. These compressors consist of two rotors within a casing where the rotors compress the air internally. There are no valves.

    These units are basically oil cooled (with air cooled or water cooled oil coolers) where the oil seals the internal clearances. Used for Low/Medium pressure (e.g., Deck air, grit blasting, painting)

    Rotary compressor units are classified into three general groups

    • Slide vane-type,
    • Lobe-type and helical type
    • Liquid seal ring-type.

    It has longitudinal vanes, sliding radially in a  slotted  rotor  mounted  eccentrically  in  a cylinder.  

    type compressor rotary Slide vane type

    The  centrifugal  force  carries  the  sliding vanes against the cylindrical  case with the vanes forming a number  of individual longitudinal cells in the eccentric annulus between the case and rotor.  

    The suction port is located where the longitudinal cells are largest.   The size of each cell is reduced by the eccentricity of the rotor as the vanes approach the discharge port, thus compressing the air.

    Features  two  mating  lobe-type  rotors mounted  in  a  case.    The  lobes  are  gear driven   at   close clearance,   but   without metal-to-metal contact.

    type compressor Rotary lobe type

     The suction to the unit is located where the cavity made by the  lobes is  largest.  As  the lobes  rotate, the cavity size is reduced,  causing compression  of  the  vapor  within.

    The compression continues until the discharge port is reached, at which point the vapor exits the compressor at a higher pressure. 

    Features a forward inclined, open impeller, in an oblong cavity filled with liquid. As the impeller rotates, the centrifugal force causes the seal liquid to collect at the outer edge of the oblong cavity. 

    type compressor Liquid seal ring-type

    Due to the oblong configuration of the compressor case, large longitudinal cells are created and reduced to smaller ones.

    The suction port is positioned where the longitudinal cells are the largest, and for the discharge port, where they are smallest, thus causing the vapor within the cell to compress as the rotor rotates.  

    The rotary liquid seal compressor is frequently used in specialized applications for the compression of extremely corrosive and exothermic gases. (commonly used in commercial nuclear plants as a means of establishing initial condenser vacuum) Stripper System priming devices on tankers

    B.Reciprocating or piston compressor

    Reciprocating air compressors are positive displacement compressors. This means they are taking in successive volumes of air which is confined within a closed space and elevating this air to a higher pressure. The reciprocating air compressor accomplishes this by using a piston within a cylinder as the compressing and displacing element

    It was the most common design employed today  

    The reciprocating air compressor is considered single acting when the compressing is accomplished using only one side of the piston. A compressor using both sides of the piston is considered double acting.

    The reciprocating air compressor uses a number of automatic spring loaded valves in each cylinder that open only when the proper differential pressure exists across the valve.
