The pulsation bottles are mounted at the inlet and outlet of / from the reciprocating compressor cylinders to even out the gas parameters (pressure and temperature). They ensure stable working conditions in the compressor cylinders and eliminate / reduce vibrations. The sizing of the pulsation bottle is done based on the geometric parameters of the compressor, the volume efficiency and working pressure. The use of a dynamic model made in the LMS Amesim program allows the study of a compressor with a set of pulsation bottles at the modification of: the pressure and temperature at the inlet / outlet of the compressor, the speed of the compressor the volume of the dead space and blocking or removing of the valves. The model includes the compressor cylinder with the corresponding dead spaces, the compressor valves, the suction and discharge pipelines and crank connecting rod mechanism. The simulation takes into account of the: gas composition, temperature and pressure in the system. The variation of the pressure in the bottles can be checked under these conditions. The values of the disturbing forces for a range of working and adjustment parameters can be obtained, values that can be used in a dynamic analysis according to API 618.
