Dynamic compressors develop a rise in pressure by increasing the kinetic energy of the gas…
Positive Displacement Compressors
Positive displacement compressors perform work on the gas in a repetitive noncontinuous process. The types within this category include:
– Sliding Vane
– Liquid Ring
– Roots (Straight Lobe) Blower
A reciprocating positive displacement machine is shown in Figure 100-3. Two rotary positive displacement machines are shown in Figures 100-4 and 100-5.
