To meet the stringent demands of today's LPG industry, Corken offers several models of vertical and horizontal reciprocating compressors . Depending on the level of containment required, each piston rod is sealed with single, double, or triple packing.
Vertical Reciprocating Gas Compressors
A single packed vertical compressor does not offer oil-free gas compression and is typically used in non-corrosive, non-toxic applications where oil-free service is not required and leakage containment is not critical. Single packed compressors are commonly used in propane, butane, agricultural ammonia, and natural gas applications
Horizontal Reciprocating Gas Compressors
When the pressures or capacities of the application are beyond the capabilities of a vertical compressor, Corken's horizontal compressors are the next option. Unlike the vertical compressors using V-ring packing, Corken's horizontal compressor uses a segmented packing design to seal the piston rod.
