1.1 Scope

1.1.1 This standard covers the minimum requirements for reciprocating compressors and their drivers used in petroleum, chemical, and gas industry services for handling process air or gas with either lubricated or nonlubricated cylinders. Compressors covered by this standard are of moderate-to-low speed and in critical services. Also covered are related lubricating systems, controls, instrumentation, intercoolers, aftercoolers, pulsation suppression devices, and other auxiliary equipment. Compressors not covered are (a) integral gas-engine-driven compressors with single-acting trunk-type (automotive-type) pistons that also serve as crossheads and (b) either plant or instrument-air compressors that discharge at a gauge pressure of 9 bar (125 pounds per square inch) or less. Also not covered are gas engine and steam engine drivers.

Note: Requirements for packaged high-speed reciprocating compressors for oil and gas production services are covered in API Specification 11P.

1.1.2 Requirements for packaged reciprocating plant and instrument-air compressors are covered in API Standard 680.

Note: A bullet (•) at the beginning of a paragraph indicates that either a decision is required or further information is to be provided by the purchaser. This information should be indicated on the data sheets (see Appendix A); otherwise it should be stated in the quotation request or in the order.
