Design Concept

Economic Compressor Solution

The standardized design of the Siemens STC-GC product line combines major advantages such as high efficiency, reliability and compact design with shorter delivery periods and lower investment costs. Several different frame sizes and a wide range of options form the ideal basis to offer a very cost-effective, integrally geared centrifugal compressor in a compact single-lift unit.

Powerful, Robust and Reliable

The Siemens STC-GC integrally geared centrifugal compressors feature a multi-shaft arrangement with different speeds. All shafts are mounted in maintenance-free, pressure-lubricated sleeve bearings. With up to four compressor stages around a central bull gear, the Siemens STC-GC compressor series forms a compact unit for the multi-stage compression of air and nitrogen.

Pre-designed gears, highest efficiency impellers, tailored aerodynamics and pre-defined auxiliaries lead to maximum performance.
