When the pressures or capacities of your application are beyond the capabilities of our vertical compressors, Corken’s horizontal compressors are your next option. Unlike Corken’s vertical reciprocating compressors, the horizontal compressor uses a segmented packing design to seal the piston rod.
Depending on the pressure requirements of your application, we offer single- or two-stage design in a lubricated, non-lubricated, single or double-acting configuration. Each style has different options for the piston rod packing and distance piece. The style of the compressor required depends on the demands of your application. If oil-free gas and leakage containment are not critical, then a plain style is right for you. Most propane, butane and agricultural ammonia applications only require a plain style compressor. In contrast if oil-free gas and leakage containment are a high priority, then a T-Style oil-free compressor is the best choice.
Each product group below is designed for a specific level of leakage containment. To find a compression solutoin for your application, select from one of the product groups listed below.
