Primarily these operate in compression of Air of Nitrogen, but a variety of other gasses in a range of molecular weight from 12 to 50 have been built as well. These machines are aerodynamically and mechanically customized to exactly meet the end user's requirements. They range in flow from 1,500 CFM to over 100,000 CFM with power ranges from 150 hp to 22,000 hp and typical overall pressure ratios of 6 to 50. Summary All Design Engineers at Ingersoll Rand are deeply involved with the marketing, design, and testing of the customized compressors made in a variety of global locations. The majority of the machines built by Ingersoll Rand are multistage machines with 2 to 6 stages optimized for a specific application. Ingersoll Rand's machines must compete globally on the cutting edge of compressor design. Extensive analytical effort is used to assure the mechanical and aerodynamic performance of the compressor. Further, a great deal of time is invested into developing code in a variety of languages for new tools to advance these efforts. Finally, with such equipment, customer questions are inevitable, and communication skill become critical, both with explaining normal operation and with trouble shooting. Research and Development Projects : Ingersoll Rand is committed to providing the most efficient products possible and we leverage our core expertise to develop leading technology for our products. We focus through our New Technology Introduction (NTI) process to ensure technology is well understood and ready for commercial market. We continually invest in latest software tools and have an extensive lab for validating designs or new ideas. We also have strong relationships with numerous universities and are continually seeking new opportunities to advance the state of the art in IGC compressor design. Design Responsibilities : Lead Engineers are individually assigned responsibility for the development and design of both the components and the compressor as a full system, including gas ends, coolers and piping. They directly interact with the Aerodynamic, Package, Rotordynamic and Gas End Engineers. In this function, the Lead Engineer develops designs, standards and procedures used in both engineered to order (ETO) and configured to order (CTO) products. Software Development: The path to being able to execute cutting edge designs includes directly incorporating the latest technology into the design tools available to the engineering teams to generate optimized compressor systems for the customer's particular site conditions, in a time frame that can be completed in a normal design cycle of a new compressor. Coding efforts to allow incorporation of the latest geometry design innovations seamlessly into the design process to constantly improve design iteration cycle time and stage efficiency concurrently are at the heart of the strength of engineering design at Ingersoll Rand MSG, TA and NX design.
