FORNOVO GAS compressors are often installed within Power Plant, if they are used to generate current or thermal energy:
Internal combustion engines
In the first case, the endothermic engines need compressed gas at low pressures generally up to 3 – 8 bar.
In the second case, the turbines, depending on the size and model, require compressed gas up to pressures that can reach 25 – 65 bar.
Furthermore our compressors are used to supply quality compressed air to the auxiliary instruments present inside the plant and for special applications where compressed air or nitrogen up to 35 – 40 bar is required.
Thanks to the OIL FREE piston technology, post-compression oil removal systems are not required.
Below is the typical scheme of an energy production plant (electric and / or thermal) powered by gas:
