Company: PG & E
Case #: 26


Customer has been operating cast steel compressor cylinders in a high pressure application. Welded on water jackets consistently cracked and resisted all attempts at repair.

Customer's Need:

Replacement cylinders were required which eliminated the problems associated with the original design.

ACI's Solution:

To avoid the problems associated with cast steel compressor cylinder bodies, ACI Services elected to change the cylinder body material to forged steel to which water jacket covers were bolted. The use of the forged design did not detract from the interchangeability of parts associated with the body and jacket subassembly.


The forged steel design of ACI Services totally eliminated the leakage problems associated with the OEM design.
