This part of ISO 10439 specifies minimum requirements and gives recommendations for axial compressors, single-shaft, and integrally geared process centrifugal compressors and expander-compressors for special purpose applications that handle gas or process air in the petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industries. This part of ISO 10439 specifies requirements for expander-compressors, in addition to the general requirements specified in ISO 10439‑1:—1). This scope covers only expanders and compressors on a common shaft (expander-compressor). This scope does not apply to expanders with separate output shafts (e.g. generator drives). Hot gas expanders over 300 °C (570 °F) are not covered in this part of ISO 10439.
