Integrally Geared Compressors are used in several refinery, petrochemical CCS/EOR and applications, either for low/high-flow, or low/high pressure conditions. This type of compressor has from one to four high speed pinions and the bull gear can be driven directly by an electric motor or by a turbine (gas or steam). One or two impellers, open or closed, tridi or bidi-mensional type can be mounted on each pinion-shaft. Optimal impeller speed and the ability to inter-cool compression stages guarantee very high efficiency. A large variety of gases can be handled by this compressor line with appropriate construction materials, seal and control systems.
