Vertical Inline Integrally Geared Process Gas Compressor

Reliable and economical, the original fit-for-purpose Sundyne vertical integrally geared compressor

Process gas compressors are the heart of the process. Their reliability directly impacts the productivity and the efficiency of the midstream, hydrocarbon processing or chemical plant.

The Sundyne LMC – Line Mounted Vertical Compressor line features single-stage integrally geared centrifugal designs that process engineers utilize for fit-for-purpose applica­tions including Oil & Gas production, Bio-refinery, E-Fuels, LNG, Fuel Gas Boost Gas Treatment, Plastic production, Ammonia, Refrigeration and specialty chemical production. Each compressor is custom built to provide pulsa­tion- and vibration-free operation, and to deliver oil-free process gas with zero emissions.

  • Flows to 2,500 acfm (4,150 AM³/hr)
  • Maximum working pressure 2,300 psi (160 bar)

NACE compliant Sundyne Compressors handle the most difficult gas processing conditions.  Each unit is engineered in accordance with industry standards, and can be designed to run continuously for 5 years without the need for costly maintenance or over-hauls.

Sundyne gas compressors provide the performance envelope, the feature set, the reliability ratings and the uncompromising efficiency needed to address the Best Efficiency Point (BEP) for any process gas application.

APPLICATIONS

  • Gas treatment, purification, De Oxo, Dehydration
  • Overhead Gas Compression, Flash Gas Compression
  • Waste Gas, Acid Gas, Wet / Dry CO2, H2S
