High operating temperatures and fuel costs

compressor station
Reciprocating engine compressors push compressed natural gas through pipelines, or move petrochemicals through downstream facilities.

As one of the earliest compressor designs, many reciprocating units were installed years ago, when fuel costs and the emphasis on energy efficiency were both quite low. These days, the inherently high-temperature, fuel-inefficient operation of reciprocating engine compressors presents a growing problem. SKF can help.

Upgrade performance with SKF

SKF offers several high-temperature, low-maintenance upgrade solutions for reciprocating compressors. SKF bearing and bushing solutions can help extend service life while reducing maintenance and operating costs.
