(mechanical engineering)

Compressor Station


a plant at various industrial enterprises and construction sites for producing compressed air or gas that is used as a power-carrier (air for driving pneumatic tools or gas for heating) or as a raw material for producing various products (oxygen from air or ammonia from a nitrogen-hydrogen mixture). A compressor station usually includes a main building, which houses the compressors and auxiliary equipment—such as tanks for the compressed air; gas collectors; water-supply, air-intake, and cooling units; and pipelines for hot and cold water, sewage, and steam.The station also has transformer substations and living quarters for workers. Compressor stations are usually housed in separate buildings with fireproof roofing and not readily combustible walls. They are sometimes located in an annex of an industrial building (if the building does not have potentially explosive or flammable production processes and if the noise and vibrations created by the equipment do not interfere with these processes).
