I have been asked by one of our process engineers to examine the effects of running our compressors with higher outlet temperatures. These are reciprocating compressors flowing propylene at ≈ 270. The outlet temperature is above our traditional limit. Being green at this and not know the exact question I should be asking, What factors do I need to consider when reviewing the effects of the high temperature on the compressor?
