Streicher Anlagenbau GmbH & Co. KG has installed two Atlas Copco CG 90 compressors with variable speed drive (VSD) at a plant in Geislingen, Germany.
The two compressors have been specifically designed for the biogas market and are used for compressing the gas to 14 bar for distribution into the medium pressure network of the local energy supply net.
The CG 90 compressors are certified for ATEX Zone 1 & 2 and are capable of continuously adjusting to changing inlet conditions while maintaining constant delivery pressure. This is achieved with variable speed compression.
The CG gas compressors feature a single stage compression process and are water-cooled, speed regulated and directly driven. This means that they operate in a very energy efficient manner.
This is the 2nd plant that Streicher has equipped with Atlas Copco gas compressors since September 2013.
“We have had very good experiences with the CGs to date”, commented Thomas Kunze, Project Manager at Streicher Anlagenbau. “The machines are simply constructed, operate absolutely reliably and, therefore, guarantee the high level of availability that we need”.
