SF Turbo compressor

The SF Series: Single stage turbo compressors with heavy duty design, up to 15 MW.​

​The SF series is a range of single-stage turbo compressors with semi-open impellers. The rotor design features an overhung impeller, supported in a separate bearing pedestal with highest rigidity and optimised rotodynamic behaviour.

Gas flows up to 600,000 m³/h can be handled.

This machine range serves the most demanding duties in its industries, even in harsh environments. It sets the benchmark for safety and reliability, at lowest lifecycle costs, in favour of their owners.

With package weights of over 50 tons, this machine is the most heavy duty equipment of its kind on the market.

This compressor range is optionally available in a design compliant to API Std 617.
