Corken has been providing industrial compression solutions to the chemical/petrochemical, oil and natural gasliquefied gases, truck and transport, liquid terminals, and marine markets for many years. Our quality, performance, and ease of routine maintenance have built a strong presence within these industries.

Our industrial line of reciprocating compressors is one of the most versatile lines of small horsepower (7.5 to 75 hp) oil-free compressors in the world. Whether you need a vertical or horizontal, double (D-Style) or triple packing (T-Style), single or multi-stage gas compressor, we likely have a compression solution for your application. Our industrial compressors are compatible with a wide variety of hazardous, volatile, toxic, and corrosive gases such as chlorine, vinyl chloride, methyl chloride, sulfur dioxide, butadiene, hydrogen, helium and many more.

If one of our standard mounting options does not meet your needs, we can custom engineer an industrial compressor package for you. We now offer an ASME B31.3 piping option for all of our compressor packages and skids.

Reciprocating Compressors (Vertical)

Corken offers several vertical models of oil-free reciprocating compressors to meet the stringent requirements of today’s industrial gases. Depending on your requirements, each model is available in a double packed (D-Style) or triple packed (T-Style) configuration. Single- and two-stage designs are available for standard and high pressure applications. The packing sets in a D- and T-Style configuration deliver oil-free gas compression (Exception: A model D891 is the only D-Style compressor that is not oil-free).

Reciprocating Compressors (Horizontal)

When the pressures or capacities of your application are beyond the capabilities of a vertical reciprocating compressor, a horizontal reciprocating compressor is your next option. Depending on your pressure requirements, Corken offers single- and two-stage models that can be configured in either a plain style or an oil-free T-Style design. The plain style horizontal is a single packed reciprocating compressor with minimum leakage containment and is not oil free. The T-Style is a triple packed and provides maximum leakage containment and oil-free gas compression. With a triple packed configuration, there is no piston rod over travel or oil carryover so you always get oil-free gas compression.

Custom Engineered Solutions

When one of our standard mountings does not meet your needs, let us customize one for you. Most custom packages are a modification of our standard mountings; however, if your needs do not fit with one of our custom packages, we can start from scratch and build you a mounting or skid from the floor up. Send us your specifications and one of our application engineers will help you design a package that fits your needs. For more information on compressor packaging and pump skids, click here.

Liquid Transfer Solutions

Corken offers a wide variety of industrial reciprocating compressors for liquid transfer and vapor recovery. Liquid transfer and vapor recovery applications can be found at tank car unloading terminals, chemical plants, manufacturing plants, and many more industrial sites. Corken’s vertical reciprocating compressors are commonly used in stationary, mobile or transport applications involving liquid transfer and vapor recovery A compressor can be mounted a trailer or transport and used for tank truck unloading applications.

Pressure Boosting Solutions

Corken reciprocating compressors are often used in gas and air boosting applicaitions. When a natural gas well has reached the end of it’s life, the gas pressure begins to drop. Many times a Corken compressor is used to boost the gas pressure flowing to the pipeline. In air boosting applications, the vast majority of plant-air systems are capable of generating up to 125 psig (8.6 bar). Special considerations within a plant may require air — oil free or lubricated — at higher pressures. A Corken air booster compressor takes plant air and increases it up to 1,080 psig (74.4 bar). The high pressure plant air is used to operate hand tools and air operated equipment within the facility.
