C16

Production Gas Compressors


Oil & Gas Applications

The Solar C16 family of gas compressors is designed


for applications with the Saturn 20, Centaur 40, Key Features
Centaur 50, Taurus 60, Taurus 70, Mars 90, Mars 100 Number of Stages 1 - 10
and Titan 130 gas turbines. These compressors combine Seals Double ring oil or tandem dry gas
high efficiency and wide flow range with a robust design
and ease of restaging. Journal: Tilting-pad
Bearings
Thrust: Self-equalizing, tilting-pad
The C16 gas compressors have the latest state-of-the-art
technology combined with the experience and reliability that Inlet/Discharge Flanges 8/8 in. Class 1500
comes with building and installing over 5000 compressors. Efficiency > 75% isentropic
