World-class compressors supported by worldwide service capabilities
Overhung, single-stage centrifugal compressors are designed for lower pressure high volume applications including mechanical vapor recompression, sulfuric acid plants, chlorine, combustion air, process gas boosters and many more. With different combinations of materials, seal designs, and impeller configurations, D Series compressors are capable of handling a wide range of gases and processes. Packages can be tailored to meet specific customer specifications as well as API and other industry standards.
How they work
Gas enters the compressor axially and is accelerated by the rotating impeller. At the impeller exit, the kineticenergy of the gas is converted into pressure energy in the parallel wall diffuser and the compressor volute or collecting ring. Whether controlled by adjustable inlet guide vanes or by variable speed operation, the compressor can meet a wide range of varying flow and pressure requirements. This simple compressor design, incorporating a single overhung impeller with a shaft mounted on two tilting-pad radial bearings, provides many years of dependable service.
Time-tested, tough performance
For over 40 years, we have built single-stage compressors that deliver consistent , reliable service in heavy-duty industrial applications. This success is the result of a single, focused objective: to manufacture and service top-quality compressors that work better, last longer and meet or exceed every customer’s specifications. For low pressure, high volume applications, our single-stage overhung compressors offer a compact design, wide-ranging flexibility and long service life. With a variety of models and seal options, we can tailor a system to meet your specific needs. Our quality management system helps ensure trouble-free operation and short lead times.
