Reciprocating Compressor

Reciprocating compressor is a type of positive displacement compressors which compresses and increases the gas pressure by converting the rotational motion by the crankshaft system and pistons to reciprocating motion. These types of compressors are mainly among the main and sensitive equipment of process units of various industries, especially the oil and gas industry, and it has the special interest for user.

Gas pipelines, petrochemical plants, refineries and many other industries are directly dependent on these types of compressors.

Due to the important factors such as the reliability of this equipment, shorter repair and maintenance periods, low cost compared to long life and ... is a popular equipment in the industry.

The different applications of this type of compressors are as follows:

  • Compressed air compressor for instrumentation;
  • Hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen compressors for process use;
  • Compressors for light hydrocarbon derivatives in refineries;
  • Compressors for transporting and storing various types of gas.

Other industrial applications:

Reciprocating compressors are commonly used to generate high pressure ratios (output pressure to inlet pressure ratio) per stage for low flow rates.

Optimistic has a long history of cooperation with world-renowned manufacturers, signed a technology transfer contract with other international company and using the knowledge of capable Iranian specialists and engineers, the ability to build, package, install, operate, troubleshoot and repair all types of reciprocating compressors (oily and non-oily) in accordance with API 618, API 11P, ISO 13631, ISO 13707 as well as the manufacturer's standard. Control and instrumentation, heat exchangers and other equipment are delivered on the chassis and ready to use.
