Course Overview

Compression of gas naturally increases its temperature. Machines that are used to compress gases are called gas compressors. When the gas is air, the machine used for this is called an air compressor. Compressors are similar to pumps in that they increase pressure and transport fluid through a pipe.

There are different types of gas compressors used as per the purpose they need to serve, the gas they need to compress, etc. These types include reciprocating, rotary, centrifugal, axial, diagonal, scroll and diaphragm types. Since they work under highly stressful external conditions, their maintenance is key to the success of plants using them.

This Zoe training course will empower you will detailed information and knowledge necessary to thoroughly understand gas compressor maintenance and operation. By undertaking this course, you will be able to independently drive and oversee gas compressor maintenance and operation for your organisation, contributing to a significant responsibility and function for your organisation.

This Gas Compressor System, Working Principle and Maintenance course will also provide you with the necessary experience and confidence to work in any organisation requiring assistance and experience in gas compressor maintenance and operation.

Course Objectives

The primary objective of this Gas Compressor System, Working Principle and Maintenance training program is to empower professionals with—

  • complete information and knowledge about gas compressor maintenance and operation
  • the required awareness of issues and challenges when working with gas compressors and ways to handle these
  • the ability to predict wear and tear of the compressors and take timely action to prevent adverse effects to the organisation
  • adequate confidence and knowledge to train other professionals on best practices and precautions when working with gas compressors
  • the knowledge and skill to choose the correct compressor to be used as per the intended purpose
  • the ability and potential to undertake critical action that would save the organisation maintenance and operational costs, thereby fostering growth and development
  • the capabilities and skill to conduct regular checks and inspections to ensure that gas compressors are working at optimal efficiency and quality and in adherence with required standards and guidelines
  • the skill to apply advanced concepts and techniques to enhance gas compressor operation

Training Methodology

Zoe Talent Solutions chose an unconventional approach to training that consisted of classroom sessions as well as practical activities. Lectures are delivered by highly experienced professionals from the relevant domain, using audio-visual presentations for ease of reference. The practical activities include group projects, role-plays, etc., which also encourage trainees to equally participate and contribute to the program. Trainers also discuss real workplace challenges and their solutions about the content of the training program.

This unconventional yet effective approach to training adopted by Zoe Talent Solutions is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.

Organisational Benefits

By professionals taking this training course, their organisations will derive the following benefits:

  • Experienced and trained professionals overseeing gas compressor operation and maintenance
  • Regular inspections to ensure that gas compressors are working at optimal capacity and quality
  • Continuous training of employees to ensure that everyone working with gas compressors is aware of basic best practices and precautions
  • Effective preventive and predictive maintenance through regular inspections
  • Longer machine life and hence reduced maintenance and operational costs
  • Organisational growth because of lesser costs and risks of wear and tear of machines and better risk management
  • Adherence to international standards and guidelines of gas compressor operation and maintenance
  • Application of advanced methods and concepts to enhance gas compressor performance
