    Cooler Bundles Isotherm Compressors
    Isotherm compressors are established in different sectors of industry, such as air separation, chemistry, the steel industry and mining. They compress high volume flows of air and technical gases to the required process operating pressures. As a result of intermediate cooling, isotherm compressors save up to 25% of drive power compared with other compressor types without cooling.

    Guide Vane Actuating Unit Isotherm Compressors
    MAN PrimeServ developed a new actuator with an electro-pneumatic positioning unit. The new guide vane actuating unit has been installed on all RIK turbocompressors since 2005. It is operating fully satisfactorily in more than 150 field installations and recommended as a “plug & play” solution to all customers with previous installations of RIK turbocompressors.

    Dry Gas Seal Booster Rack Radial Compressors
    The appearance of liquids or even hydrates in the Dry Gas Seals (DGS) may badly affect their trouble-free operation. If the sealing faces of the DGS are contaminated during pressurized standstill conditions they potentially suffer damage during compressor start-up. The booster rack provides clean, superheated seal gas to the DGS and hence prevents the formation of liquids and hydrates during times of pressurized standstill of the machine train.

    Enhanced Process Efficiency
    With increasing operational problems and the declining reliability of a 30-year-old expander, for which the OEM was no longer in a position to offer the necessary technical support, the customer decided to have the work carried out by a qualified third party. Following a competitive bid procedure, MAN PrimeServ was entrusted with this demanding assignment.

    Upstream Compressor Revamp
    Two identical, gas-turbine-driven barrel compressors type RB 35, installed on an oil production platform in the Gulf of Mexico, have been retrofitted from 8 to 9 stages. The conversion was necessary in order to compensate for a pressure decrease in the partially depleted oil reservoir.
