Vertical compressors for optimal LPG and NH3 transfers

Vertical compressors are designed for liquid tank-to-tank transfers with minimal residue due to the vapour recovery functionality. They are frequently used for rail car loading and unloading, liquefied gas transfers, pressure boosting and vapour recovery.

Product description

Working only with the vapour phase in a liquefied storage, vertical compressors are great for tank-to-tank transfers, preferable of larger sizes. Vertical compressors are not affected by NPSH related effects and are therefore usable for tanks at any height or position.
