Table of Contents
Product DescriptionDesign processes and procedures to successfully install, revamp, and integrate an user interface to a Dresser-Rand N-30NL4 Reciprocating Air Compressor. Proper electrical and operating supplies need to be arranged for the machine with its placement into the Test Cell (09/2329). The end result should designs for the degrade of compressor from 6 to 2 stages. This will result in a safer exhaust pressure of 100 psi and motor power requirement of around 25 HP. Future Senior Design Projects will use the compressor.
Key Business Goals
- Safety and minimizing effects on the surrounding college environment are key goals for the installation and revamp.
- RIT and Dresser-Rand intend on using the revamped compressor for future projects of health monitoring concerning variable valve timing technology.
- The interface should provide a head start for future teams to successfully create a data acquisition system.
- Primary Consumer is RIT
- Product is to be used in the college environment with minimal disturbances.
- Future Plans include generations to implement changes and create data acquisition system.
- Dresser-Rand Company
- Investigate technology and problems surrounding their products
- Use as a testing compressor for performance issues and enhancements.
Assumptions and Constraints
- Initially during the current Senior Design project, the Test Cell will be serve dual function with the Formula Team's engine dyno.
- The compressor will be in suitable condition upon the time of donation.
- Interface components will be acquired by future design teams and only a suggested interface will be needed.
- End Users
- Future generations (multiple) of project.
- College Environment
- RIT Formula Team
- Dual Function Room
- RIT Machine Shop
