Centrifugal Compressors for Air Separation Units
Producing industrial gases requires a great deal of energy, making the need for an efficient compressed air or nitrogen system critical to plant success.
To produce industrial gases such as purified nitrogen or oxygen, atmospheric air is compressed, cooled, and separated in a distillation column or cold box. Once the cryogenic separation is complete, the gases are used in other processes or compressed for storage and transportation.
The gases produced during this process can be used in various areas, including producing chemicals and petrochemicals, liquefaction of natural gas (LNG), clean, dry air for electronics manufacturing, and liquefaction of nitrogen for distribution. As a key component of the separation process, reliable and energy-efficient air and nitrogen compressors are crucial to maintaining low operating costs.

FS-Elliott: Your trusted source for clean, dry air compressors.
Further increases compressed air from the MAC and provides countercurrent stream for evaporation.
FS-Elliott compressors can serve as nitrogen gas compressors or booster nitrogen compressors for your air separation unit.
An industrial gas producer opened a new air separation plant that required 4440 Nm3/h of air and 2100 Nm3/h of gaseous nitrogen for production.
Due to the modular design of the plant, the compressors selected for the project needed to be minimal in size but capable of high-efficiency gas production.
Customer reduced capital expenditures and increase overall efficiency by combining the air and nitrogen processes in one machine.
