API 617 Standards: Centrifugal Compressors and Expanders for the Petroleum, Chemical and Natural Gas Industries

API 617 provides guidance for the design, manufacture, testing, and operation of centrifugal compressors and expanders. These devices are widely used in the petroleum, chemical and natural gas industries and require stringent standards to ensure their reliability and efficiency.
The main aspects of API 617 are:
1. Design of compressors and expanders:
o Selection of materials and components, optimizing performance.
o Consideration of operating conditions such as pressure and temperature.
2. Manufacturing and assembly:
o Quality control at all stages of manufacturing.
o Precise tolerances and assembly standards to ensure equipment durability.
3. Testing and Inspection:
o Evaluation of performance, reliability, and durability.
o Testing under various operating conditions to confirm compliance with standards.
4. Installation and Operation:
o Installation, start-up, and maintenance manuals.
o Preventive maintenance programs to extend equipment life.
5. Monitoring and Diagnostics:
o Condition monitoring and diagnostic systems for timely detection and troubleshooting.
API 617 helps improve the efficiency and reliability of centrifugal compressors and expanders, reducing operating costs and improving process safety (Document Center)​.
