JGM / JGP

The Ariel JGM and JGP are known for their cost-effectiveness and are well suited for gas gathering, gas lift, and CNG applications. This class of reciprocating compressors readily couples with a broad range of high-speed engines.

Built to handle up to 170 BHP, The JGM and JGP assume a wide range of field gas suction and discharge conditions in a small footprint. Using up to 4 stages of compression across an extensive cylinder library, the JGM and JGP are versatile choices in their horsepower range.

Innovative Cylinders

 

Ariel produces versatile cylinders that can be utilized over wide pressure ranges without compromise by using valves that effectively balance reliability and performance. For each compressor frame size, Ariel's lineup of cylinders can fully utilize that frame's horsepower and rod load capabilities. Cylinders can be combined in hundreds of different configurations to deliver the precise volume and pressure of gas required. 

Ariel 7 Performance Software is used by Ariel engineers and industry experts to model and design compressor configurations for their specific application. All of our cylinder designs, past and present, can be accessed to duplicate your existing compressor operations or design a new build.
