Gas Compressors have to be designed to handle large changes in pressure and temperature in a large variety of gas mixtures.
One misunderstood aspect of a Ro-Flo rotary vane compressor is the integral cooling system. When looking at the compression system as a whole, the cooling system temperature is sometimes adjusted to help control the process gas temperature.
If you’re thinking about purchasing a high pressure gas compressor from Ro-Flo for your application, you’ve likely noticed that we offer two options for the shaft seals.
A vapor recovery compressor is a specially designed compressor used for handling wet, heavy , or acidic gases.
Rotary vane compressors are known for their ability to handle saturated and corrosive gases. Their durability in tough environments is why they are commonly chosen for vapor recovery, flare gas and various industrial process gas applications.
When the discharge pressure needed for an application cannot be reached with a single stage gas compressor, a two stage gas compressor is needed. While a two stage gas compressor is more expensive, more complicated to operate, and requires additional equipment, there’s simply no other way to reach a higher discharge pressure if a single stage gas compressor isn’t cutting it.
