HYCOMP B, G, H SERIES (2-40 HP)
CONTINUOUS RECIPROCATING OIL FREE AIR COMPRESSORS
Hycomp’s modular compressor design is unique in our size range. No competing manufacturer offers the ability to change bore and stroke sizes so readily. Our adaptability allows us to manufacture a compressor that fits your specific needs, from our stock supply of standard frames, cylinders, and heads
Hycomp oil free gas compressors are capable of delivering a wide range of flows at pressures from a few psig to over 1,500 psig. Based on over 40 years of proven compressor design and engineering, the addition of multiple gas packing options to the broad variety of existing units allows us to offer an extremely versatile line of gas compressors
Hycomp compressors are completely modular. We offer 2 cooling methods, 9 block sizes, 18 packing arrangements and 20 cylinder sizes. Our modular style of engineering and manufacturing creates nearly endless compression possibilities, so that when you bring us your problem, we give you an exact solution.
Hycomp provides three increasingly secure methods of gas leakage control, including our ‘B’ series for inert gases, our ‘G’ series for standard industrial gases and our ‘H’ series for extreme gas control.
When dealing with gas mixtures it is important to examine not only the individual gas constituents and their individual effect on design, but also to examine the mixture as a whole as certain gases interact with others to become more corrosive, toxic or flammable than in their pure form. For the assurance that your system is safe, trust Hycomp
Flexibility: Materials & Conditions
Our engineered solutions are flexible to your requirements. Bring us your conditions and we will engineer a compressor to match your needs. We gauge compatibility and select materials accordingly. Our wide range of high quality materials provides many options to match the compatibility requirements of most industrial gases. When you need an exact solution to a specific application, trust Hycomp.
Reliability: Continuous & Oil Free
Hycomp gas compressors are continuous duty. Our compressors are engineered for slower running speeds to handle a full 60 minutes per hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year of continuous operation, while your process remains pure. When unplanned downtime is not an option, trust Hycomp.
The B-Series compressor is designed to compress air or nonhazardous/non-contaminating gases. Suction gas is plumbed through the plenum chamber, equalizing pressure on, and providing cooling to, the packings. Two pairs of segmented packings per rod, set for suction pressures above ambient, is standard configuration. A third packing may be added to increase leakage control (B301 configuration). Vacuum applications can also be handled with two pairs of packings (B202 configuration) or three pairs of packings (B302 configuration) per rod.
G Series: Industrial Gases
The G-Series compressor is designed to compress standard industrial gases. Suction gas is plumbed through the plenum chamber, equalizing pressure on, and providing cooling to, the packings. Three pairs of segmented packings per rod, with a purge/vent chamber between the top two sets and the bottom-most set, configured for suction pressures above ambient, is the standard G211 configuration. Two packings may be added, one above & one below, to increase leakage control (G321 configuration). Applications where the suction pressure is lower than the pressure in the vent chamber (vacuum or high pressure padding) can be handled with three pairs of packings (G212 configuration) or five pairs of packings (G322 configuration) per rod.
H Series: Extreme Control
The H-Series compressor is designed to compress difficult to contain industrial gases. Suction gas is plumbed through the upper plenum chamber, equalizing pressure on, and providing cooling to, the upper packings. Two pairs of packings per rod provide the first isolation of the process gas. A second plenum chamber is added, through which purge gas may be run. Three pairs of segmented packings per rod, with a purge chamber between the top two and the bottom-most packings are located in the bottom of the lower plenum chamber. This combination of B & G series options provides the standard H2211 configuration. Additional quantities of packings may be added for tighter control. Applications where the suction pressure is lower than the pressure in the upper vent/purge chamber (vacuum or high pressure padding) can also be handled in standard configuration.
