A flexible compression solution using a screw compressor with less (gas) vibrations and lower maintenance costs

Page last modified
April 11 2024

Eltacon supplies gas compressor packages in a wide range of alternative executions, all based on oil-injected twin rotary screw compressors. The choice for this type is based on the better economics and the higher compression ratio of the oil-injected screw compared to other type compressors. Especially developed for gas fired power plants, the units are suitable for Hydrogen compression as well. The units can be supplied with an integrated package control room, air-cooled cooling water systems as well as a fire-fighting system.

Pros & Limitations
Highly flexible solution, suitable for fluctuating inlet pressures and varying outputs due to variable compression ratios
Low vibration and wear of rotating parts compared to other technologies, increasing the availability to 99,5% per year
Skid mounted units with a robust design for a single lift, turn-key solution
Flexible and fast capacity regulation, even down to no-load without additional cooling requirements or venting facilities
Automatic safety system and integrated unit control
Over 150 units installed world wide with 3 decades of experience
World wide certifications, including CE marking, ASME code stamp, API, EAC etc.
Less maintenance and lower OPEX costs
Suitable for all ambient conditions, even for desert application and off-shore facilities
