Siemens Turbocompressor – Integrally Geared, Vertically split volute casing
Since its inception 60 years ago, the STC-GV compressor series has been meeting demands for compression solutions with high efficiencies and pressures up to 200 bar. STC-GV compressors, designed according to customer specifications and in accordance with both API 617 and API 672, guarantee the highest quality and technical standards for a broad range of industrial applications.
Siemens also offers variants of the STC-GV:
- Direct reduction
- Direct smelting
The STC-GV integrally geared centrifugal compressors feature a multi-shaft arrangement with different speeds. All shafts are mounted in maintenance-free, oil-lubricated hydrodynamic bearings. With up to eight compressor stages around a central bull gear, the STC-GV compressor series forms a compact unit for the multi-stage compression of a wide range of gases.
Optimized shaft speeds, modern impellers, tailored aerodynamics and mechanics along with optimized auxiliaries guarantee the highest efficiency. Adjustable guide vane units at the first and / or any other compression stage optimize the operating range. External cooler arrangements allow for operation at extreme site conditions.
