High Efficiency

After numerous requests for more durable equipment for industrial gas applications, Blackmer set out to design reciprocating gas compressors and pumps capable of handling the rigors of operations where high efficiency and low maintenance are required.

Blackmer process gas compressors provide efficient and quiet delivery of oil-free gas or air. These heavy-duty single and two-stage compressors combine advanced design technology and state-of-the-art materials to give maximum performance with minimum maintenance.

Through years of development and testing, Blackmer has created sliding vane pumps that are designed for use with fluids with entrained gases, and surpass the demanding expectations of industrial gas applications. Utilizing the unique Blackmer sliding-vane design, these pumps offer the best combined characteristics of sustained high level performance, energy efficiency, trouble-free operation and low maintenance cost.


Blackmer reciprocating gas compressors and sliding vane pumps are ideal for industrial gas applications, due to their ability to handle heavy-duty, high efficiency operations that also require low maintenance and quiet operation. Some of these applications include:

  • Transfer / recovery
  • Propane
  • Butane
  • LPG
  • Anhydrous Ammonia (NH3)
  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
  • Refrigerant
  • Sulphur Dioxide
  • Chlorine
  • Air booster
  • Natural gas
  • Nitrogen
  • Other gases


CRL Sliding Vane Pump

The sliding vane pumps offer superior priming and suction capabilities that make them ideal for line stripping, complete evacuation of heels and superior lift.

  • CRL – Built with materials specially suited for CO2 transfer and  equipped with a cavitation suppression liner.
  • LGL – Designed for use with LPG, Propane, butane and anhydrous ammonia, featuring a cavitation suppression liner.
  • SGL –  Ductile iron pumps a wide variety of seal materials, used for liquefied transfer or recirculation of refrigerants and other liquefied gases.
Reciprocating Gas Compressors

Oil-Free Reciprocating Gas Compressors from Blackmer, are used in three different product transfer based applications - vapor recovery, pressure boosting, and liquefied gas transfer.

  • HD – Provide efficient and quiet delivery of a wide range of industrial gases.
  • LB – Offer high efficiency in handling anhydrous ammonia, propane, butane and other liquefied gases.
