Single Shaft Vertical Split Turbocompressors
This product line is suitable for a wide range of process gases and meets customers’ requirements in all types of industries, especially on/offshore oil & gas and downstream applications and LNG. Siemens centrifugal barrel-type turbocompressors feature a flexible, reliable and robust design – the perfect solution for higher pressures.
Proven technology to enhance existing portfolio
These barrel-type centrifugal compressors are found in a variety of natural gas compression applications. Installations range from single units to multiple-unit trains, driven by gas turbines or electric motors. Complete systems for onshore or offshore are designed, manufactured, installed and supported by Siemens.
Available in four standard frame sizes, our multi-stage barrel compressors provide the oil and gas industry with natural gas gathering, re-injection, lift, depletion, storage/withdrawal and re-pressurisation solutions.
Barrel-type centrifugal compressors are the preferred choice for high pressure ratios and the lower flow rates experienced in these applications. Standard configurations are available up to 310 bar (4,500 psig)
maximum working pressures and up to 60,300 m³/h (35,500 acfm) flows. Power ratings range from
26,100 to 56,000 kW (35,000 to 75,000 hp) at design speeds from 3,500 to 13,800 rpm.
