Blackmer®, part of PSG®, a Dover company and a global leader in positive displacement, regenerative turbine and centrifugal pump, and reciprocating compressor technologies, is pleased to announce the availability of its new NGH100 Series Horizontal Oil-Free Reciprocating Gas Compressors. NGH100 compressors have been designed to optimize operational capabilities in a wide variety of critical oilfield production operations, including wellhead transfer, artificial lift and vapor recovery.
Blackmer NGH100 compressors are highly efficient horizontal opposed units featuring a non-lubricated design available in heavy-duty single-stage (NGH1013) and two-stage (NGH1023) configurations. A key operational characteristic of NGH100 compressors is their ability to handle sour gas that contains up to 8% dry hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which is a flammable, extremely hazardous byproduct of recovered crude oil and natural gas. To enhance their compatibility with sour gas, the NGH100 compressors feature select parts (that follow NACE guidelines) in all gas-containment areas. They incorporate steel wrist pins that ride on steel needle bearings for extra life under severe operating conditions. NGH compressors are constructed of ductile iron with a balanced forged-steel crankshaft. Piston rings and rider bands are made of PTFE/PEEK.
NGH compressors have the capability to handle wet and dry gas, and offer flexible cylinder sizes for various flow rates and pressures and motor-speed capabilities up to 1,800 rpm. These compressors can achieve flow rates up to 3,000 MSCFD at maximum working pressures up to 1,500 psig (103 bar).
Blackmer® is the leading global provider of innovative and high-quality rotary vane and centrifugal pump, and reciprocating compressor technologies for the transfer of liquids and gasses. For more than a century, the Blackmer name has stood for unparalleled product performance, superior services and support, well-timed innovation and a commitment to total customer satisfaction. Supported by a worldwide network of distributors and original equipment manufacturers, Blackmer pumps and compressors are used in a multitude of applications in the Process, Energy and Military & Marine markets.
