Vertical Reciprocating Gas Compressors (Single PackedCorken plain style vertical reciprocating compressor)

Corken plain style vertical reciprocating compressor line is a single packed gas compressor and does not offer oil free gas compression. This packing configuration is typically used in non-corrosive, non-toxic applications where oil free service is not required and leakage containment is not critical

  • Plain style reciprocating gas compressors utilize one set of V-ring packing per piston rod and do not have a distance piece
  • If oil-free gas compression is required, a D-Style or T-Style vertical compressor is recommended

D-Style Oil Free Reciprocating Gas Compressors
  • D-style vertical compressors utilize two sets of V-ring packing per piston rod and one (single) distance piece
  • The lower packing set has an adjustable packing screw used to maintain the sealing performance over the life of the packing
  • With the exception of models D791 and D891, all D-Style compressors deliver oil free gas compression
  • Typically used in toxic and corrosive applications where oil free gas is required and leakage containment is desirable
T-Style Oil Free Reciprocating Compressors
  • T-Style vertical gas compressors utilize three sets of V-ring packing per piston rod and two (double) distance pieces
  • The lower packing set has an adjustable packing screw that is used to maintain the sealing performance over the life of the packing
  • All T-Style vertical reciprocating compressors deliver oil free gas compression
  • Typically used in toxic and corrosive applications where oil free gas and maximum leakage containment are critical


Horizontal Reciprocating Compressors (Single Packed & Triple Packed Oil Free)

Corken Horizontal Reciprocating Compressors (Single Packed & Triple Packed Oil Free)

When the pressures or capacities of your application are beyond the capabilities of our vertical compressors, Corken’s horizontal gas compressors are your next option. Unlike Corken’s vertical reciprocating compressors, the horizontal compressor uses a segmented purge packing design to seal the piston rod.

Plain Style Horizontal Reciprocating Compressors
  • Plain style horizontal gas compressors utilize one set of segmented packing per piston rod and do not have a distance piece.
  • Plain style configurations are not oil free
  • Typically used in non-toxic, non-corrosive applications where oil-free gas is not required and leakage containment is not critical. LPG, natural gas, and air boosting applications are a few examples.
  • If oil free gas compression is required, a T-Style horizontal compressor is recommended.

T-Style Horizontal Oil-Free Reciprocating Compressors

  • T-style horizontal compressors utilize three sets of segmented packing per packing rod and two (double) distance pieces.
  • The inner oil wiper rings and oil deflector ring prevent oil carryover.
  • All T-style horizontal compressors deliver oil-free gas compression.
  • Typically used in toxic and corrosive applications where oil-free gas is required and maximum leakage containment is critical.
