Corken LPG Compressors Corken’s vertical, oil-free gas compressors provide a full range of capacities from 24 to 361 gpm (5.5 to 82 m3/hr) in liquid transfer. Corken also offers a double-acting vertical gas compressor capable of capacities from 337 to 757 gpm (76.5 to 171.9 m3/hr). These compressors provide a great deal of versatility. A compressor can be designed for railcar-unloading but with a minimal amount of additional piping, it can also be ultilized to load and unload trucks and recover gas from cylinders, tanks and lines.
Corken offers a variety of piston rod packing configurations, distance piece options, and special coatings suitable for a wide range of industrial gases. A double packed (D-Style) reciprocating compressor has one distance piece and offers a moderate level of leakage containment. A triple packed (T-Style) compressor has two distance pieces offering the highest level of leakage control. If necessary each distance piece can be pressurized, purged, or vented for maximum leakage containment. Both styles are available in single- and two-stage, air or water cooled, and single and double-acting versions with NPT or Class 300 RF connections.
Standard compressor mountings designed for liquefied gas transfer, vapor recovery, and gas booster applications are available. If one of these do not meet the requirements of the application, Corken can supply a custom engineered package. The ASME B31.3 – 2012 piping option is available upon request.
Each product group below is designed for a specific level of leakage containment.
