Compressors and Blowers
Large and powerful compressors with a high level of efficiency, long service life and a high degree of reliability are used in the oil and gas industry, chemical industry and in special industrial application.
In general, the requirements of the drive are met either by a powerful electric motor, which is connected with the compressor via a coupling or by a combustion or gas-powered engine, which is coupled to the compressor via a coupling and gearbox. This is independent of whether the compressor is a reciprocating one, a screw-type one or a rotary compressor. The most important functions of the coupling are: Balancing the offset between the prime mover and the machine that is being driven, torque transmission and minimisation of torsional vibrations.
