The main volume of gas produced in the Republic of Azerbaijan is formed in offshore fields. Some of this gas is transported to the shore, and the other part is used in gas-operated wells. In both cases, multi-stage compressors on SOCAR's balance sheet are used. In the process of compressing gas in compressor stations, its temperature rises (T = 115 ÷ 118 ℃) and it is important to cool it to T = 35 ÷ 38 ℃ before sending it to the outlet. The heat exchanger proposed by the authors differs in this respect by its simplicity and functional advantages. The article provides a comparative analysis of the durability of existing and newly constructed heat exchangers used in compressor stations.
Keywords: heat exchanger, selection, flicker noise spectroscopy, multitaper spectral evaluation.
