SF series

SF Series

Turbo compressors with semi-open overhung impeller, supported in a separate bearing pedestal with highest rigidity and optimised rotordynamic behaviour, to serve the most demanding duties in its industries and to smoothly handle corrosive, erosive and sticky gases.

SFG series

SFG Series

Integrally geared turbo compressors with semi-open overhung impeller mounted directly onto the high-speed shaft of the gearbox. Due to its minimum mechanical losses, this series is the preferred highly efficient solution for clean process gas or air service applications.

SL series

SL Series

Turbo compressors with semi-open impeller mounted between the bearings. The SL series is designed to meet the most demanding duties in coke oven gas applications, especially to handle rotor unbalances caused by the sticky cokery gases.

ST series

ST Series

Integral turbo compressor / steam turbine-units with single shaft design, direct driven without gearbox or coupling and supported on a single rotor support stand with minimum mechanical losses. Due to its very low steam consumption and lowest footprint size, the highly efficient design has proven in various process applications.

R series

R Series

Turbo blowers with closed-type impeller in a fabricated, modular design, available in direct drive as well as integral or separate gear configuration, allowing optimum adaption to nearly all process requirements.
