Process Gas Rotary Screw Compressors

NirvaTech supplies Process Gas Helical Lobe (Screw) Rotary Compressors, dry or oil-injected, according to API-619 as well as customer specified fully packaged compressor skids with all auxiliaries, such as oil separator, lube oil system and all instrumentation & control system, for many applications including refrigeration or medium pressure compression system on production units.

Process Gas Screw Compressors have capacity and pressure capabilities between those of centrifugal and reciprocating compressors. They handle inlet volume flows up to approximately 100,000 m3/h and discharge pressures up to around 70 bar (g). They achieve positive displacement compression using two synchronized, helical rotors. Their smooth-running feature, relatively compact design and their tolerance to polymers formation in the casing or on rotors (unlike centrifugal or reciprocating compressors), make them an optimum solution for the following processes, especially in oil & gas production, oil refining and petrochemical processing:

  • Difficult gases (dirty, polymer-forming, liquid containing, corrosive)
  • Gases containing entrained liquids
  • Corrosive gases
  • Process that fluctuate in molecular weight, pressures and flow rates
  • Low molecular weight gases

In particular, dry screw gas compressors are suitable for complex and dirty gas services, such as offshore vapor recovery, refinery flare gas recovery and petrochemical polymer forming gas, which make them an excellent choice for handling dirty gases.

The capacity and hence power control of oil-injected rotary screw compressors is achieved by means of a built-in slide valve, which automatically increases and decreases the actual suction volume and hence, the brake horsepower increases and decreases according to capacity, resulting in improved energy efficiency. Due to its design, the oil-Injected Screw Compressor has a unique feature of tremendous power savings in cases of (1) turn down operation and/or (2) suction gas pressure fluctuation.
