Rotary screw compressors offer solutions to a
broad array of standard compressed air needs. Featuring lubricated
packages ranging from 5 to 500 HP and oil-free packages ranging
from 20 to 150 HP, rotary screws are used in general applications
such as producing utility air for plants and powering pneumatic
tools in numerous industries worldwide. Smaller screws (30 HP
and lower) are used in situations where low noise, ease of installation
and low maintenance are key considerations.
Larger reciprocating compressors are used in higher pressure
applications (200 psi and up) which often require special
design and equipment packaging. Examples are products Gardner
Denver has custom built for NASA and the plastic bottle blowing
industry. Small reciprocating compressors (30 HP and below)
are used in numerous commercial applications where durability
and cost are major considerations.
Gardner Denver is pleased to announce the availability
of the GD-Turbo, a new generation of multi-stage centrifugal
air compressors. The GD Turbo incorporates the latest designs
from aerospace and jet engine technology. Super computers and
software programs were used as drawing tools for the GD Turbo,
integrating aerodynamic patterns for the impeller and diffuser.
The GD Turbo is the most advanced unit of centrifugal compressors
in the world today in the 400 to 1,500 HP range. These units
are designed to provide the best value and quickest return on
your investment. They lead the centrifugal market in uncompromising
oil-free air solutions.
Gardner Denver rotary screw gas ends are well
suited for natural gas compressor applications. All Gardner
Denver gas compressors are constructed of ferrous metal. No
yellow metals are used in the gas end construction. This allows
the Gardner Denver Rotary Gas Compressor to be used in virtually
any natural gas application.
