1380 HP, 3 Stage, Reciprocating Compressor Package





1380 HP, 3 Stage, Reciprocating Compressor Package (Custom Unit)
Compass Compression Model No.CT1380-RAE4-3
ApplicationGas Gathering
LocationNorth-eastern United States
ObjectiveDesign and Engineer a 3-stage, 1380 bhp reciprocating compressor package to ship within a limited shipping envelope
Design ChallengesTo fit a package which is typically 24 feet wide x 20 feet high (peak height) into a envelope of 14 feet wide x 12 feet peak-height
Compass Compression Solution
We designed a fully assembled unit with the building installed for shipping, including a fully functional 3-ton overhead crane assembly. 

On either side of the package are (2) 3 foot wide building “bolt-on” modules, with no process piping or customer connections.  The modules, and building panels are fully assembled prior to shipping.  Field installation is limited to bolting the side modules to the main package, and flashing of the building modules together.  This is an easy process and only took a few hours on site for installation.
