# There are 2 gas compression plant G

## There are 2 gas compression plant G

(OP)
There are 2 gas compression plant GCP-A & GCP-B, each consisting of 3 nos. of reciprocating gas compressors. The rated discharge head of compressors at GCP-A is more than that of GCP-B. Discharge of both GCPs is connected to common outlet. What will be the final discharge pressure received at common header? How will the flow rate of each GCP matter?

Homework?

CR

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." [Proverbs 27:17, NIV]

### RE: There are 2 gas compression plant G

Discharge pressure will be dependant on the downstream conditions and frictional losses.

Flow rate will be whatever the flow rate of the compressors are.

Pressure will be irrelevant until it exceeds the max pressure of the B compressors.

Some actual numbers would help....

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

### RE: There are 2 gas compression plant G

I'll echo what crshears said. Without some numbers, the question is too imprecise to be a realistic one.

### RE: There are 2 gas compression plant G

obviously homework, and true it could as formulated here be anyting from 0 to the max of the two stations.
