For almost three decades Eltacon Engineering BV. has designed, manufactured, tested and delivered various types of gas compressor packages for numerous reputable end-users and turbine manufacturers.
Eltacon supplies gas compressor packages in a wide range of alternative executions, all based on oil-injected twin rotary screw compressors.
Being an independent packager Eltacon selects the best available model and size of compressor using the product range of international recognized manufacturers such as Howden, Grasso, Sullair and Kobelco.
The choice for this type is based on the better economics and the higher compression ratio of the oil-injected screw compared to oil-free screw compressors.
Eltacon deliveres gas compressor packages for power plants up to 200 MW (based on 2 up to 4 gas turbines).
The “typical” gas compressor range of Eltacon:
- Gas inlet between 1 bara and 40 bara (15 psia and 600 psia)
- Gas discharge pressures up to 60 bara (900 psia)
- Pressure ratio from a minimum of 1,2 up to approx. 22 (pending composition of gas)
- Minimum “swept” volume approx. 6.000 am3/h
- Installed motor power from ≈ 500 up to 3.500 kW
- Capacity control by means of sliding-valve and/or frequency-convertor (small models)
At Eltacon the compressors are “categorized” in accordance with the service they are designed for. Based on this Eltacon has the following main groups:
Fuel Gas Booster Compressors being:
- Units for Gas Turbines up to 15 MW.
- Units for Gas Turbines up to 120 MW.
These fuel gas booster compressors are delivered for gas fired power plants up to 200 MW (based on multiple G.T.’s).
These compressors are used to extend the lifetime of a nearly depleted gas well.
Inlet pressures may vary from 8 bara down to 1,1 bara.
Other Gas Booster Compressors
- Vent- of flare-gas compressors
- Associated-gas compressors
- Off-gas compressors
