Oil-Flooded Screw Compressors

Oil-flooded (wet) screw compressors have been in increasing demand in gas and refrigeration applications, which were once dominated by centrifugal and reciprocating compressors. The demand for refrigeration screw compressors has increased, partly driven by rapid growth of shale oil and gas production, mostly in North America. The US shale basin production growth has enhanced the demands for new infrastructure investment in gas processing. This subsequently favors screw compressor technology due to its unique operating characteristics.
Most natural gas produced from wells contains water and various other hydrocarbons that must be removed from the gas stream by processing plants before it is injected into natural transportation ...
