Sections: Centrifugal Compressors

The scope of this section includes integrally geared, multi-stage centrifugal air compressors. Unlike positive displacement compressors, these compressors develop pressure by dynamic action. Centrifugal compressors are inherently oil-free and used in a wide range of industrial and process applications where large volumes of high quality air are required.

The typical horsepower range for these products is 300 to 3000HP. While normally driven by an electric motor, these compressors can also be driven by other means such as diesel engines or steam turbines.
