Single and two shaft hot gas expander compression systems will soon replace conventional multitrain, low speed equipment due to significant economic and process advantages. The single train concept is a direct result of the recent advances in high pressure ratio compressor, high performance radial inflow turbine and high performance steam turbine technology. The application and custom engineering of single train compression systems is discussed, whereby emphasis is placed on performance and reliability.
