The current pressure on cost calls for new technologies that can simplify and reduce the number of compressor bodies installed as well as saving space and weight.


High Pressure Ratio Compression is a technology, that building on our compressor heritage, enable a compressor to deliver very high pressure ratio in one single casing.

The paper will illustrate, as HPRC applied to real cases for charge gas compressor studies,  deliver huge amount of benefits and also how process can be re-engineered to achieve:

  • higher efficiency,
  • reliability,
  • reduced footprint
  • and cost reduction
