Small Line

 

JGR

The JGR is a medium-sized separable reciprocating compressor. Nicely suited for gas gathering on moderate-size wells, the JGR is a very packager-friendly compressor, pairing efficiently with electric motors and natural gas engines.

The JGR is offered in configurations up to 860 BHP and has been an oilfield staple for conventional gathering wells and as mother compressors for distributed gathering.

Product Features

 

Full Pressure Lubrication

 

A frame-driven lube oil pump provides cooled oil through a full-flow oil filter to all the frame's moving components. A divider-block system also supplies metered oil to cylinder bores and rod packings.

Heavy-Duty Crankshafts

 

The Ariel JGR compressors feature forged steel, precision-machined crankshafts with integral counter-weights manufactured specifically by Ariel Corporation.

High-Strength Bolting

 

Durable grade 8 bolting on all loaded joints, combined with specially designed fatigue-fighting bolts on all valve caps, ensure ultimate fastening strength throughout.

 
 

Materials 

  • Gray Iron Crankcase: Forged steel crankshaft, gray iron crosshead guide, tri-metal main bearing 

  • Ductile Iron Crosshead: Alloy steel crosshead pin

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.
