Contractual requirements for the supply of Ethane resulted in the requirement for a booster compressor with a high degree of reliability and availability.
Extremely onerous customer, International, (API 617) and other specifications governed the design, assembly and testing of the final package.
The range of operation required resulted in a broad window that needed to be effectively and efficiently covered.
An electric motor driven Sundyne compressor with variable speed drive and accessories including lube oil, mechanical seal support and condition monitoring systems was supplied.
Onboard instrumentation provides feed signals for the package control unit as well as safety systems.
The compressor performance was factory tested in Japan and witnessed by the client whilst the finally assembled package was functionally tested and witnessed by the client in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
