While the process of gas compression can be quite complex, and there can be several pieces of equipment and machinery involved, two of the most essential, are the gas generators and engines. A gas generator, for instance, is one of the more simple pieces of equipment involved with natural gas compression, but at the same time, it may also be the most vital in the process. Another integral part of gas compression is the actual compressor itself, which serves similar tasks as a pump, except that pumps are primarily designed for liquids not gases. Ultimately, a gas compressor reduces the overall volume of a gas, making it more readily accessible and useable in a variety of different functions.
For example, gas compressors today are used for everything from pipeline transportation to underwater SCUBA diving; and even commercial air conditioning and refrigeration. As previously mentioned, gas generators and engines are two of the essential pieces in the compression of natural gases. More specifically, diesel engines are particularly useful for running portable and smaller compressors. What’s more, engines and gas generators are perhaps best at fueling gas compression with the power from the built-in crankshaft. Additionally, the waste exhaust from the generator or engine can be used to spin a turbine attached to the compressor, providing more functionality.
Worldwide Power Products has an extensive selection of gas generators and engines that can be used for natural gas compression. Whether you are considering using a gas generator, or a more heavy-duty diesel engine, Worldwide Power Products is the most cost-effective and reliable place to find the exact size, weight and design of power that you are looking for. Regardless of whether you are looking for a Caterpillar or Cummins; a 250 kW generator, or a 4,000 horsepower engine, we have you covered.
