A sleeve seal heating system for a multi-stage compressor is disclosed. The multi-stage compressor includes a mechanism for dissipating heat disposed between and in fluid communication with a pair of compressor stages in the multi-stage compressor. The present invention contemplates the inclusion of a mechanism for selectively bypassing the heat dissipating mechanism disposed between and in fluid communication with each pair of compressor stages to thereby warm a succeeding stage, causing the stage to become substantially operative. The mechanism for byp...
A method for compressing fluid in a multi-stage compressor, comprising the steps of: compressing a fluid in a first stage; rendering operative a second stage by initially warming said second stage with said compressed fluid; cooling said compressed fluid only when said second stage is substantially operative; and compressing said fluid in said second stage.
