Extreme demands, extreme reliability
Extreme process gas conditions require robust and reliable compressors. Screw compressors are able to cope with conditions and applications reciprocating or centrifugal compressors cannot serve due to corrosion and erosion impact.
MAN Diesel & Turbo process-gas screw compressors have been successfully applied to a wide range of applications including mining, iron and steel mills, chemical complexes, the petrochemical industry, refineries and oilfields. The screw compressor is ideal for the compression of light gases. Wide fluctuations in gas composition and associated molecular weight do not influence a screw compressor's mechanical behaviour. Relatively low tip speeds allow both the compression of dust laden gases as well as the injection of liquids into the compression chamber for cooling and washing.
MAN Diesel & Turbo screw compressors are designed for suction flows of up to 100,000 m3/h and discharge pressures of much as 50 bar. They are engineered as single or multi-stage units in accordance with API619 and can be driven either by electric motors or steam turbines.
