In 2020, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor International Corporation (MCO-I) launched a new performance test stand for API617 centrifugal compressor testing at its Pearland Works in Houston, Texas, U.S. The new test stand conducts PTC 10 Type 2 performance testing and mechanical run tests on small to mid-size compressors, for the upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas applications.
MCO-I’s own equipment was used to demonstrate efficacy by verifying that the new MCO-I shop test result matched the previous Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation (MCO) shop test result, obtained from MCO’s facility in Hiroshima, Japan. This test stand demonstration test proved that the MCO-I Pearland Works service facility could perform the PTC 10 Type 2 performance and mechanical run tests effectively.
The new localized offering means that more than 90% of the test stand’s customers are now located within a 300 mile radius of the facility and these customers will benefit from much shorter project lead times, allowing for quicker time to market, potentially saving each customer hundreds of thousands of dollars.
