Metal diaphragm compressors from sera in petrochemical pilot installations

Saving energy means protecting the environment

Immenhausen, (PresseBox) - The finiteness of fossil energy sources increasingly demands new processes and products. They should both help to save energy and also be developed to help utilise the remaining fossil energies in simpler and faster ways. Furthermore, they should lower the consumption for the diverse applications through suitable additives and catalysts.

The large-scale technical utilisation of the related substances in the petrochemical field is preceded by comprehensive tests and trials in pilot installations.

It is especially important here that no contamination is introduced into the substances and processes to be studied within the installation. Lubricants and hydraulic oils etc. would be particularly critical in this case.

Pilot installations represent highest demands on the compressors

Because the processes and certain recipes can initially be determined only theoretically, the pilot installations must permit extremely flexible modes of operation. Apart from the overall dimensioning of the installation, maximum requirements are presented on the compressors in this context. The useful range of the machine's rated delivery capacity is not the only important factor here. In most cases, the compressor must also be able to be used over a wide range of pressures without having to undergo time-consuming adjustments to suit new operating conditions.

Operators bank on the reliability of sera

Very few machines meet this requirement profile. sera diaphragm compressors met the requirements of the operators across the board. They can be used for operating pressures of 500 bar and higher. Their delivery capacity is infinitely adjustable, depending on various process parameters, between 0% and 100%. Material resistivity is not a critical issue. All parts that come into contact with gas are manufactured from low-alloy to high-alloy stainless steels according to the application.

The environment benefits most

The sera multi-layer diaphragm technology makes sure that no gas leaks that could potentially contaminate the environment can occur, for example, through toxic or combustible substances. High efficiency of the machine is naturally a matter of course.

By the way: sera dosing pumps have a similar design to sera compressors and, to be consistent, they exhibit comparable properties with the delivery and dosing of liquids.
