Atlas Copco, Vericor Partner On Compressor Packages
By DJ Slater21 August 2020
Atlas Copco Gas and Process has formed a strategic alliance with Vericor Power Systems. The partnership enables the two companies to manufacture integrally geared centrifugal compressors and companders powered by Vericor gas turbines.
This package features a 5000 hp (3728 kW) ASE50B gas turbine, designed for compression applications in remote and demanding environments. The turbine has fuel flexibility and cold-start capability. The integrally geared GT series compressor features oil-free and pulsation-free gas processing. Companders are a compressor and radial turboexpander mounted on the same gearbox.
“Our customers now have the option to install these compressors in applications that would have been considered too difficult in years past,” said Tushar Patel, global head of marketing, Altas Copco Gas and Process.
