Did you know?

The RT-Series compressors are specifically designed to reduce component complexity. This lowers your initial CAPEX investment and also promotes lowerOPEX costs through lower energy consumption and extended maintenance intervals
Built for large-scale air separation

Large-scale, reliable and highly-efficient compressor packages. Reduce your operational and maintenance costs, while experiencing shorter setup times and easier site construction

Interstage coolers

Coolers are a critical part of your main air compression process. That’s why our interstage coolers use a proven water-in-tube/air-in-shell design with an integrated water demister to ensure optimum performance

Robust main air compressor unit

High flow levels and superior efficiency are hallmarks of the RT’s three-stage radial single shaft main compressor design. The sturdy main compressor ensures performance over the lifespan of the product

Global sourcing network

Five facilities located throughout the globe ensure we can reduce CAPEX costs by being able to create and package your machinery regionally

Drive train expertise

We have decades of experience coupling our custom-designed turbomachinery to the proper power source. From steam to electric to the newest in energy recovery drives, Atlas Copco Gas and Process can design a system that fits your needs

Technical description of the RT-Series single-shaft turbocompressor

A direct answer to growing demand for larger and OPEX optimized air supply levels in today’s air separation units (ASUs), the single-shaft, three-stage radial-flow RT-Series combines the best in our aerodynamic competence to deliver ultra-efficient stage and impeller design. In full compliance with API 617 and 614 (oil system) standards, the RT-Series is developed for all main air separation applications. By using a modular, simplified design and a free-arrangement packaging concept the RT-Series compressors

  • shorter delivery time
  • lower OPEX costs
  • increase reliability
  • decrease maintenance downtime
