Pipeline transmission compressors are driven by gas engines, utilizing a small portion of the transmitted gas to power the compression.
Pipeline transmission compressors often require a wide range of capacity control steps to maintain proper flow at the highest efficiency.
Pipeline compressors operate under a very low ratio of compression, but high flow requirements. These low compression ratios and high flows require special cylinders that offer very high compression efficiency. The special features of Ariel pipeline cylinders are large valves and larger flow areas for greatly reduced gas passage losses.
