The standardized, integrally geared compressor that reduces CAPEX

With an Atlas Copco centrifugal compressor at its core, TurboBlock (TM) makes a standardized fuel gas booster option available — one with all of the essential components, but without the cost of more specialized products. It effectively handles fuel gas pressure through single or multiple stages to create the pressure needed in the gas turbine combustion chamber.

The standardized design of TurboBlock (TM) is a response to the markets’s needs for a reliable, yet cost-efficient solution for the areas of the industry that moved from coal to natural gas for power.

In developing TurboBlock (TM), we improved its core seal systems by reducing porting and nitrogen usage, and by simplifying the seal support system. TurboBlock also features a compact base frame, separate oil tank, single plate / frame oil cooler, piping reductions and simplified components, which make the booster’s footprint significantly smaller than those of its customizable counterparts.

The TurboBlock (TM) product range provides flexibility by offering a number of standard features that can be added according to customers’ preferences; at the same time, it can meet high-spec process requirements by incorporating add-on modules or systems.

Excellent turndown ability translates into top combustion efficiency. All house in a single-skid package for easy setup, the TurboBlock (TM) reduces CAPEX by removing heavy customization.
