Centrifugal systems are not positive displacement systems like screw and reciprocating compressors. Therefore, they have a lower volumetric efficiency. They are used in applications such as large industrial processes or district cooling
The compressor in the picture left is open drive. The shaft seal needs to be replaced when it shows signs of wear. Because the issue is noticed during the maintenance, the repair can be arranged to take place during a factory shut down
This lowers efficiency and can lead to safety shut down and loss of production. A visit can be arranged to dismantle the heat exhangers and clean the tubes
