Features & Benefits

  • 72 to 8,212 CFM (122 to 13,952 M3/hr)
  • Up to 6,000 hp (4,474 kW)
  • Electric motor, gas engine or steam turbine drive
  • Slide valve for efficient capacity control
  • Variable volume ratio (Vi) eliminates over/under compression
  • Open-cycle gas compression and closed-cycle refrigeration service
  • Hydrocarbons, natural gas, CO2, hydrogen, halocarbons, mixed gases, ammonia and others
  • Designed in conformance with API 619


  • Gases Range: Hydrocarbons, halocarbons, ammonia, CO2 and other alternative refrigerants
  • System Duty type: Both closed-cycle refrigeration and opencycle gas compression
  • Material: Cast iron, nodular iron, and cast steel, with design working pressures to 600 psig
  • Bearings: Antifriction bearings throughout to provide superior rotor positioning and minimize frictional losses - also eliminates the need for an oil pump in many applications
  • Sour gas bearing options: brass, PEEK, and high-heattreat steel
  • Seals: Single mechanical with optional dualcartridge tandem seal with dry or wet-running outboard seal and support system
  • Capacity Control: Slide valve for accurate capacity turndown to as low as 10% load, plus variable volume ratio to match compression to system requirements.
  • Motor Mounting Typical: D-flange motors on small to mid-size applications eliminates field alignment. Foot-mounted motors available in mid to large sizes.
  • Other Advantages: Internal oil passages and straight-thread O-ring style connectors in lube system minimize potential leakage.
