Centrifugal compressors and blowers

High-speed blower

We provide engineering services in Centrifugal compressors and Blowers, Turbocompressors and Compressor units. We focus on industrial centrifugal compressors, based on  API617 standard (American Petroleum Institute, Axial and Centrifugal Compressors and Expander-compressors)single shaft & integrally geared. We provide also solutions for an integration of compressors (and their accessories) into new/existing technology processes. It can be also for other compressor types – reciprocating compressor (piston) or screw compressor.

Applications

  • Oil & Gas services, Natural gas compressors
  • Chemical services, Fertilizer plants, etc.
  • Industrial refrigeration
  • Metallurgy, Mining, Coke oven
  • Water treatment

Typical projects

Greenfield projects

  • You are planning to build new process plant and you need a support with compressor RFQ establishing.
  • You work in EPC, which is preparing a new plant project, and you need a support with centrifugal compressor selection/design.
  • You have received several compressor proposals and you need to compare and evaluate them.

Brownfield modifications

  • Your centrifugal compressor is running well, but you want to know, if you could/should revamp it to achieve better operation parameters (higher efficiency, flow, pressure ratio).
  • You want to operate the compressor by other gas parameters. And you want to know what would be the estimated revamp scope.
  • Your compressor is approaching general overhaul. You would consider a modernization on this occasion and you need to evaluate what are the benefits of various options. 

To know more

  • You want to make compressor preselection and you need to know more about centrifugal compressor possibilities.
  • You have a problem with rotor dynamics and you need the independent assessment or just to find solution.
  • Your team want to learn more about industrial centrifugal compressors.
