Jitendra Kumar Sasmal | Amit Suhane  | Geeta Agnihotri
Abstract: Reciprocating air compressor is an important equipment of industries such as food packing plants, bottle manufacturing, glass manufacturing, and even non manufacturing systems etc. A sudden or unexpected failures of such significant components due to miscellaneous reasons affects the operating system leading to system seizure. The present article highlights the different failure modes of reciprocating compressor under varied operating conditions along with the appropriate maintenance strategies to diagnose and tackle the problems occurring very often. Condition monitoring technique is a vital step in maintaining the condition of working equipment at normalcy. It helps in detecting the premature and catastrophic failures leading to drastic productivity and system deterioration. This techniques gives sufficient time to develop a suitable maintenance program for each and every failure modes. In this work the maintenance program for reciprocating compressor has been developed keeping in view the failure modes of individual component.
