INDUSTRIAL HORIZONTAL COMPRESSORS

INDUSTRIAL HORIZONTAL COMPRESSORS

When the pressures and capacities of the application are beyond the capabilities of a vertical compressor, Corken’s horizontal compressor is the next option. These versatile compressors are available in single packed (HG600) and triple packed (THG600) design. Other options include single- or two-stage compression, lubricated or non lubricated compression, and single or double-acting compression.

A single packed compressor is commonly used in non toxic oil field, natural gas, propane, butane, and similar applications where leakage containment is not critical. For toxic and corrosive industrial applications or where oil-free compression and leakage containment are crucial, a triple packed (T-Style) oil-free compressor is required.

Corken offers standard compressor mountings designed for liquefied gas transfer, vapor recovery, and gas booster applications. If one of these do not meet the requirements of the application, a custom engineered, package can be supplied. TheASME B31.3 – 2012 piping option is available upon request.

SINGLE PACKED COMPRESSORS

Single packed compressors have one set of packing per piston rod and are typically used in non-toxic applications where oil-free gas and leakage containment are not critical.
>> Utilizes one set of segmented packing per piston rod
>> Typically used in non-toxic, non-corrosive applications where oil-free gas and leakage containment are not critical
>> Multiple mounting options
>> No distance piece
>> Does not offer oil-free compression

FEATURES

>> All cylinders and heads are made of ductile iron for maximum thermal shock endurance
>> Single packed design offers a basic (minimum) level of containment
>> Typically used in non-corrosive and non-toxic applications where oil-free gas and maximum leakage containment are not required
>> Valve design offers quiet operation, high efficiency and greater durability
>> The step-cut design of the self-lubricating piston rings provides higher efficiencies during the life of the piston ring
>> Positively locked pistons allows end clearance to be precisely set to provide maximum efficiency and long life
>> Cast iron crossheads provide superior resistance to corrosion and galling
>> Pressure-lubricated crankcase with oil filter keeps the internals well lubricated at all times and minimizes premature wear
>> Crankcase oil heater is available for cold climates


TRIPLE PACKED COMPRESSORS

The T-style is an oil-free compressor with three sets of packing per piston rod and two distance pieces for maximum leakage control. Purge kits with all of the accessories needed to purge or pad each distance piece are available.
>> Utilizes three sets of V-ring packing per piston rod and two distance pieces
>> Adjustable packing screw on lower packing maximizes sealing performance over the life of the packing
>> Oil-free gas compression
>> Typically used in toxic and corrosive applications where oil-free gas and maximum leakage containment are critical

FEATURES

>> All cylinders and heads are made of ductile iron for maximum thermal shock endurance
>> Oil-free gas compression with the highest level of leakage containment
>> Since the T-Style configuration eliminates rod over travel, you get oil-free gas compression
>> The two distance pieces can be purged or pressurized for maximum leakage control
>> Valve design offers quiet operation, high efficiency and greater durability
>> The step-cut design of the self-lubricating piston rings provides higher efficiencies during the entire life of the piston ring
>> Positively locked pistons allows end clearance to be precisely set to provide maximum efficiency and long life
>> Piston rod seals minimize oil carry over and maximize leakage control
>> Packing sets are a spring loaded seal design that self adjusts to compensate for normal wear
>> Adjustable packing screw ensures maximum sealing capacity throughout the life of the packing (exceptions: models 791 and 891)
>> Cast iron crossheads provide superior resistance to corrosion and galling
>> Pressure-lubricated crankcase with filter keeps the internals well lubricated at all times and minimizes premature wear
