Centrifugal Compressors – Discharge Temperature

If the calculated discharge temperature exceeds approximately 350°F, cooling should be considered to avoid problems with compressor materials, seal components, and clearances. The exact temperature limit is dependent on factors such as the gas compressed, compressor materials, allowable temperature of the seal oil, and the type of seals. Also, note that discharge temperature will increase as flow is reduced toward surge.
