Dresser-Rand reciprocating compressors and integral gas engines are found in refining, petrochemical, natural gas transmission, and in general industrial applications. For compressor operators, maximizing efficiency and minimizing energy costs are key.
The Dresser-Rand capacity control (CapCon) suite is comprised of three variable control systems—(1) infinite step control (ISC); (2) gas-controlled stepless pockets (GSP); and (3) hydraulic variable volume clearance pockets (HVVCP). Each technology allows variable output from stepped or fixed output compressors over a wide range of operating conditions.
This variable capacity control system gives operators an infinite number of intermediate steps so the compressor can run at less than full design capacity and use less energy when appropriate. Exerting this throttle over the compressor allows you to save operating energy and reduce energy costs.
With the largest installed base of rotating equipment in the industry and 39 service centers around the world, our personnel stand ready to help maximize the reliability, production revenue, and profitability of your rotating equipment.
The result of more than a century of design and manufacturing expertise, our reciprocating compressors have established an outstanding record for performance, efficiency, reliability, and low maintenance in the most demanding upstream, midstream, and downstream applications.
