Paper Abstract

Progress made in the development of a range of small compressors and gas cleaning equipment designated High Pressure Pure Air Generators (HiPPAG) is described together with the HiPPAG design considerations and the choice of operation conditions. Particular attention is given to the characteristics of several HiPPAG systems, including a three-stage open-cycle compressor, HiPPAG 100; a four-stage open-cycle compressor, HiPPAG 320; and a three-stage closed-cycle compressor, HiPPAG 340. Design diagrams of HiPPAG 100 and HiPPAG 320 system layouts are presented along with some performance data.
