Baker Hughes API 618 Reciprocating compressor

Overview

Overview

 

2020欧洲杯体育备用网站Our API 618 compressors are well-known for decades for low pulsation and vibration, which translates directly to exceptional efficiency, low maintenance, and low power consumption. They are used across a wide range of refinery, petrochemical, and natural gas applications including hydrocracking, ammonia, refrigeration, re-injection, and gas lift.
