Reciprocating compressors are widely used in the industry and plays an important role in maximising productivity as it increases the pressure and reduces the volume of a gas. Compressors are sensitive equipments and maintenance has to be performed when the equipment fails. Reciprocating compressor has both rotary and reciprocating motion involved. Unbalance forces are bound to occur on the dynamic components and this causes a lot of vibration in which might spoil the compressor. Analyzing these forces might help to overcome the unbalance forces and thus reduce the vibration and faultiness in the compressor. Using softwares that are made available, analyzing of these forces will be possible with less hassle. CATIA is used to produce the model of the compressor and with the completed model, it is then imported in ADAMS for simulating and analyzing. Results are shown through graphs and discussions were made to analyze the results.
