Reciprocating Compressors (Vertical)
Many liquefied gas piping systems do not provide ideal net positive suction head (NPSH) conditions for liquid pumps. As a result the poor NPSH conditions lead to excessive pump maintenance. Since reciprocating gas compressors are only exposed to vapors, they are not affected by poor NPSH conditions. Many LPG tanks such as tank cars, railcars and buried tanks have top unloading connections. A reciprocating compressor is the perfect solution for transferring liquids to and from tanks of this type as well as vapor recovery. Our Corken compressors are compatible with a wide variety of hazardous, volatile, toxic, and corrosive gases such as chlorine, vinyl chloride, methyl chloride, sulfur dioxide, butadiene, hydrogen, helium and many more. Each compresssor is available with a standard mounting or we can custom engineer a compressor package for you. We now offer an ASME B31.3 - 2012 piping option for all of our compressor packages and skids.
