The features of oxygen compressors
SIAD Macchine Impianti’s offering for oxygen compressors consists of a full range of highly reliable, oil-free piston compressors with a variety of specifications:
- They all comply with international safety standards:
EIGA IGC 10/07/E
ASTM G94- 05
They are skid-mounted to facilitate installation and commissioning
They are extremely reliable for compressing a particular gas such as oxygen
The ergonomic design of our oxygen compressors is designed to allow maintenance in total safety
They have a maximum capacity of 40,000 m3/h and a maximum power of 8,700 kW.
The adoption of safety procedures, standards and best practices, as well as technical specifications deriving from SIAD MI's long experience in this specific sector, allow us to achieve our goal: to design reliable and best performing compressors with maximum safety.
NON-SPARKING MATERIALS:Selection and use of specific and certified materials, which do not generate sparks, despite the friction due to the reciprocating linear movement of the piston along the cylinder walls.
DUST-FREE ASSEMBLY:Assembly of oxygen compressors in exclusive dedicated areas with a controlled clean environment, using specifically-cleaned equipment
CONTROLLED TEMPERATURE:Temperature is a key factor to keep risk factors under control: SIAD MI has developed dedicated solutions to constantly monitor the temperature trends of the oxygen flow within the compressor package and thus prevent any potential issues.
OIL-FREE TECHNOLOGY:which is essential to an Oxygen compressor, to guarantee high performance, reliability and availability.
SEPARATION:The separation between the lubricated parts of the crankcase and the totally oil-free components in contact with Oxygen (pneumatic part) can be achieved thanks to various solutions including a white-painted, single compartment revealing a long distance piece. This is the “Type B” as per the API618 standard.
PURGING:In order to ensure that there are no leaks of oxygen, the rod packing groups that allow the piston rod to move into the cylinder can be purged with nitrogen, in order to create a pneumatic barrier to the cylinder itself.
The sectors where Oxygen compressors are used
SIAD Macchine Impianti oxygen compressors are mostly used in steel, paper, metal and glass processing, plus at chemical and industrial gas companies and are also widely used in the metallurgy and petrochemical sectors.
SIAD Macchine Impianti is the only manufacturer in the world which is part of the Industrial Gas Company SIAD S.p.A. which is also a member of EIGA, the European Industrial Gases Association. Significantly, SIAD Macchine Impianti engineers helped to define the content of the EIGA IGC 10/07/E standard (“Reciprocating Compressors for Oxygen Service”).
The experience of our teams has resulted in SIAD Macchine Impianti creating for its customers a range of oxygen compressors with a certified standard that can be adapted to the numerous requirements of small, medium and large industries.
