A lot of reciprocating compressors have what’s called a VVCP head.  It stands for variable volume control pocket.  It has a adjustable wheel that will allow you to determine of the load you want depending on how much has you’re using.  Some of our customers our running their recips at full capacity, so there’s not much need for it.  VVCP heads can be a source for leaking gas.  So, if you’re not using it, you might as well blind it off.  That’s what we’re doing here for Eagle Rock Energy.
