Course Description

This half day course assumes basic familiarity with compression theory and reciprocating machines and takes the participant through the comparative application, design and operations of screw machines.

Participants will learn the differing requirements and control of screws in refrigerant vs. booster service and also the multiple options for lube oil cooling.

Participants might consider that this half day course is a good supplement to be added to the 1 ½ day Reciprocating Compressor Course, though it can be taken as a ‘stand-alone’ course by those already familiar with Reciprocating Compressor technology.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for personnel involved in the selection, operation, and troubleshooting of screw compressors.

This course will be of particular interest to Operating Engineers; Technicians and Senior Plant Operators.

Attendees should be familiar with basic compression and refrigeration technology.

Course Outline


Operating principles – comparing screws with reciprocating machines; how they differ and why they are BOTH positive displacement machines.

Screws in Refrigeration Service – how and why the screw machine has come to dominate Gas Plant Refrigeration service over the past decades with better control options.

Screws in Booster Service – how and why the Screw has specific but limited application in booster service of natural gas.

Cooling Systems – assessing the many options for oil cooling and maximizing compressor efficiency through optimized cooler operation.
