Multipurpose conversion of marine diesel engines when creating piston motorcompressor units
This paper present an assessment of the energy efficiency of various combinations of piston stages of an internal combustion engine,
a compressor, and a Rankine engine as part of piston motor-compressor units based on modernized marine diesel engines. An eight-
cylinder single-row diesel engine 8Ch23/30-1 is chosen as the object of research, the base of which is used as a single platform for
creating powertechnology units for various purposes and power. The proposed variants for converting the original engine allow, with
minimal costs for the development of design and manufacturing technology, to create gas engine compressor units with reduced fuel
consumption and improved weight and size characteristics in comparison with the known mobile compressor stations driven by diesel
internal combustion engines. In the paper, on the basis of the developed mathematical models of working processes, the possibility of
joint operation of diesel cylinders with piston expanders of the Rankine cycle and one or more stages of a piston compressor is assessed.
Various possible combinations of diesel cylinders, compressor cylinders and expander cylinders are considered, as well as the
dependences of engine power and compressor performance depending on the number of compressor stages and the number of diesel
power cylinders used.
Keywords: recuperation, Rankine cycle, internal combustion engine, compressor.

The analysis of uncertainty factors influence on mathematical modeling of ammonia compression
in wet vapor area
The paper presents the influence analysis of such uncertainty factors as the heat transfer coefficient calculation method and the working
chamber wall temperature on the mathematical modeling of the ammonia compression in a reciprocating compressor stage during the
condensation of ammonia vapors. The mathematical model is based on the equation of the first law of thermodynamics for bodies with
variable mass, the equation of state for real gases, the Clausius–Clapeyron and Newton–Richman equations. When determining the heat
transfer coefficient value, several well-known dependencies for calculating these coefficients for dropwise and filmwise condensation have
been considered. The calculation data shows that the instantaneous values of the ammonia pressure and temperature, as well as of the
dryness fraction during compression in the wet steam region, significantly depends on the chosen method for calculating the heat transfer
coefficient. Moreover, the walls temperature value of the compressor working chamber, where the compression occurs, has a considerable
impact on the process under discussion. They are the determining factors and require special attention when the ammonia compression
process is mathematically modelled in a reciprocating compressorstage, taking into account its vapors condensation.

DOI: 10.25206/2588-0373-2021-5- 3-45-53
The interstage channel is one of the factors affecting the efficiency of the molecular drag stage in a hybrid turbomolecular pump (TMP).
The influence of parameters of the channel on the pumping performance of the molecular drag stage is investigated. The offered
approach allows calculating the pumping performance of a molecular drag stage taking into account the effect of the interstage
connecting channel on the pumping process. The comparison of the pumping characteristics of a molecular drag stage obtained in
calculation taking into account the effect of the channel and excluding it is given. This article assesses the efficiency of the molecular
drag stage in a hybrid TMP depending on geometric and dynamic parameters of the channel. The outcomes and recommendations
allow to expand the range of working pressures of a hybrid TMP exclusively by means of parameters of the connecting channel.

Compressor equipment for enhancing efficiency of solid organic waste processing plants
The article describes the experience of the Compressor holding company in the creation of compressor equipment for various industries.
The use of compressors as part of complexes for the processing of organic waste in the framework of solving urgent environmental
problems has been demonstrated. The process of compression of synthesis gas to increase the efficiency of the processing process has
been investigated. To ensure stable parameters, reliable operation of syngas reciprocating compressors is required in wide ranges of
operating parameters. Ensuring the operability of the compressor in wide ranges of parameter variation requires multivariate calculations
in order to find the best design parameters of the compressor. A compressor is proposed for the most efficient implementation of the task
and its characteristics are calculated.

Testing and calculation of impact fatigue strength of Flap-X and SS 716 flapper valve steel grades
/trans. from Engl. M. A. Fedorova
DOI: 10.25206/2588- 0373-2021-5-3-63-74
During the operation of reciprocating compressors, the flapper valve opens and closes under fluid pressure and flow. As it closes, it
strikes against the valve seat, generating stresses and noise. This cycle of loading produces bending and impact fatigue stresses in the
reed. This load pattern is repeated billions of times during the service life of a compressor and it defines the service life and reliability.
The goal of this study was to calculate the impact fatigue strength of the Flap-X and the SS 716 grades and, to provide the compressor
manufacturers with the information they can use to specify a steel grade to be used in their compressors, for reliable service. Impact
fatigue tests were conducted on a custom-built impact fatigue test rig that used air pulses to produce movement of the reed valves
manufactured by a major European compressor manufacturer Nidec Global appliance GmbH, at a frequency of 315 Hz and pulse width
of 2,2 milliseconds. The testing was conducted according to the staircase test method detailed in the International Standard SS-ISO
12107:2012. The impact fatigue strength of the Flap-X and SS 716 steel valves was calculated in terms of the impact velocity according
to the modified staircase test method in the standard. The test results and their statistical analysis showed that the impact fatigue strength
of the Flap-X grade was higher compared to the SS 716 grade. The calculation and testing of the impact fatigue strength of the flapper
valve steel grades could help the compressor designers to select the optimum material for their compressor designs, to provide reliable
service. The higher impact fatigue strength of the Flap-X grade, lower failure rate and longer impact fatigue life will allow the compressor
manufacturers to design thinner valves, as Flap-X can sustain higher impact fatigue stresses reliably for longer time and, at the same time
help reduce noise, as thinner valves produce less noise for a given pressure and frequency.
Keywords: reciprocating compressor, reed valves, impact fatigue strength, experiment, comparative tests.

to obtain the specified thermodynamic parameters and a method for calculating the characteristics of the jet ejector with known geometric
dimensions. The effect of viscosity on energy exchange is shown. The agreement between the calculated and experimental data is

Justification scheme for milling waffle background
In the manufacture of dry and fuel compartments of missiles ensuring weight tolerance is a priority. In practice, this is ensured by the
introduction of lightweight materials together with the optimal design of the supporting set of ribs (waffle background) of orthotropic
shells and waffle shells. The manufacturing technology of which is difficult and costly in view of the difficulty of ensuring the accuracy
and perfection of the shape of the waffle background cell. In modern conditions, when manufacturing a waffle shell for a fuel tank,
reinforcement processing is carried out by milling on a monolithic blank using specialized machine systems. At the same time, the choice
of the waffle background processing scheme remains an urgent issue: on a flat panel or on a bent shell. The problem of selection arises
due to the requirements for the accuracy of the waffle background. It is important to maintain the part mass tolerance and geometric
perfection of the cell shape. All this generally affects the perception of design loads and the carrying capacity of the rocket. At the same
time, the methods and processes of processing the waffle background should be productive and economically feasible. The proposed
justification will make it possible at the start of the design of new promising products to more accurately determine the technological and
production costs necessary for the production of parts with a waffle background with given parameters and accuracy.
