More than 60 years of experience

Starting in 1952 with the first supply of an oil-free screw compressor unit MAN Diesel & Turbo has set milestones in the field of process gas screw
compressors ever since. Not only offer MAN Diesel & Turbo the widest range of screw compressor sizes in the market with rotor diameters starting from
102 mm to 816 mm. With the highest referenced discharge pressure (51.5 bar_a) and greatest in-field volume flow (77,000 m/h) MAN Diesel & Turbo
screw compressors also demonstrate its exceptional reliability at even the most critical conditions. MAN Diesel & Turbo screw compressor units have
proven high availability factors over more than 100,000 hours of trouble-free operation in continuous refinery service and other fields of applications such
as:
Mining
Iron and steel mills
Chemical complexes
Petrochemical industry
Oil fields
Screw compressors for extreme conditions
Extreme process gas conditions require robust and reliable compressors. MAN Diesel & Turbo screw compressors are able to cope with extreme
conditions and applications reciprocating or centrifugal compressors cannot serve due to corrosion and erosion impact.
Intensive R&D efforts, the use of the most advanced manufacturing and test facilities, exchange of experience with plant operators, close cooperation with
leading research institutes, as well as the collaboration with international standards organisations (i.e. API 619 committee, ISO, etc.) guarantee both
highest technical standards and cost-efficiency.

Oil-free process gas screw compressors
MAN Diesel & Turbos capabilities in the field of oil-free screw compressors are unique: Over 60 years of experience, more than 2,000 compressor
units in the field, proven trouble-free availability of more than 100,000 continuous operating hours underline the exceptional quality of MAN Diesel &
Turbo oil-free screw compressors.
Designed for suction volume flows from 200 up to 100,000 m/h, suction pressures down to 0,1 bar and discharge pressures reaching above 50
bar, the robust process-gas screw compressors offered by MAN Diesel & Turbo can handle highly contaminated gases and gas mixtures that
would normally shorten the availability and life time of other types of compressors. Wide fluctuations in gas composition and associated molecular
weight do not influence a screw compressor's mechanical behaviour. Relatively low tip speeds allow both the compression of dust laden gases as
well as the injection of liquids into the compression chamber for cooling and washing.
MAN Diesel & Turbo can offer a wide range of shaft seal arrangements to adapt the process gas screw compressors to any application. The
modular design of the compressor package allows for perfect adaption to any customer specification or space restrictions.
