Reciprocating gas compressors are designed to deliver high-efficiency operation output for the transfer and recovery of gases such as LPG (propane/butane/propylene), refrigerants, carbon dioxide, natural gas, anhydrous ammonia, nitrogen, and numerous others. They are available in many configurations, including single-stage or two-stage; air-cooled or liquid-cooled; and single, double, or triple seal.
Blackmer Piston Compressors fill a special niche in the compressor market. They come in 5 different power frame sizes up to 100 HP (75 kW), provide flows up to 3,000 CFM (510 m3/hr), and feature maximum allowable working pressure up to 1,500 psi (103 bar).
Many liquid-transfer applications can be handled more efficiently with a reciprocating piston compressor than a liquid pump. These applications include unloading of transports and pressure vessels where system piping restricts flow and may cause cavitation, unloading of LPG from rail cars, and other installations that require an initial lift to the liquid.
For more than a century, Blackmer has been building a reputation as a reliable manufacturer. Our reciprocating gas compressor technology, namely the LB, HD and NG Series models, have proven themselves over and over as dependable and robust equipment for the markets served.
