Precision-balanced rotor assembly for smooth operation

A smooth process with low vibration and reduced wear-and-tear means a long service life for your turbomachinery. That’s why the TP-Series rotor assemblies combine precisely matched and balanced pinion shaft, high-speed gear and impeller

Best efficiency possible

As the industry’s most efficient and compact gear design, integral gear technology delivers multiple-speed capability that allows each compression stage to run at the optimum speed, giving you the best efficiency possible

Technical description TP-Series centrifugal compressor

Available in a full range of customized and standardized products, our TP-Series centrifugal compressors deliver cost-effective, sustainable service in facilities all over the world. Boosting your productivity in a broad scope of ranges, the TP-Series handles

  • flow volumes up to 155 000 m3/h
  • at suction temperatures ranging from -50 ºC/-40 ºF to 200 ºC/392 ºF
  • and delivers a maximum discharge pressure of 100 bar

Handling all gases

They handle all gases (LPG, nitrogen, natural gas, oxygen, etc.), and avoid contamination through their oil-free design. Designed with integral gear technology, the industry’s most efficient and compact mechanical drive design, TP-Series gas compressors allow each compression stage to run at the optimal speed. For added flexibility, adjustable inlet guide vanes (IGVs) offer a wide operating range and excellent partial load performance.

What’s more, you may choose your TP-Series compressor from various configurations to meet your specific process needs, in compliance with stringent API 617 standards.
