Technical description reciprocating gas compressors HX and HN
Industrial air and gas applications
HX and HN high pressure reciprocating gas compressors handle compression solutions in power plants, oil and gas sites, chemical plants, and industrial processes around the world. Powered by an energy-efficient horizontal balanced opposed design, our versatile HX/HN gas compressors can have many faces. Handling gases such as air, nitrogen, CO2, methane, hydrogen and argon, they play the part of:
- fuel gas booster
- high pressure air/nitrogen supply for air/nitrogen separation units
- nitrogen booster in many industries like metal, food and beverage
Our flexible HX/HN design can be used for a wide variety of applications and industries.

Oil-free whatever the conditions
Oil-free compression with PTFE piston rings and long distance pieces safeguards gas quality. That’s an important asset, since even the slightest contamination of oil is unacceptable and could lead to high risks in many applications. HX/HN high pressure gas compressors work under strenuous conditions in outdoor, indoor, refineries, deserts (high ambient temperatures) and sandy environments.
Adjustable flow rate
To ensure maximum flexibility in your operation, a variety of regulation systems, including optional variable speed drive (high variable large scale between 40-100% of the flow), valve load-unload mechanism adjust the flow rate according to the actual utilization of the machine and bypass system (pressure control valve). What’s more, our experts are here to help you choose compressor options to meet your specific needs.
Securing your process with the best possible air and gas quality, oil-free technology meets the stringent ISO Class Zero standard. Oil-free delivery is not only important when gas comes into contact with consumable end products; it also eliminates the adverse effects that oil can have on your processes and equipment.
