Applications served by the Eight-Stage High-Pressure Compressor
Urea for Fertilizer
Urea production uses natural gas as a feed stock to synthesize ammonia, and it is combined with CO2 at high pressure to create the urea found in such products as nitrogen-rich fertilizer. Efficiency and reliability are important factors for a urea installation.
Supercritical Power Cycle
The emerging Supercritical Power Cycle through oxyfuel combustion is a game changer. Proven to be among the most efficient fossil fuel power cycles, it uses supercritical CO2 (sCO2) as a working fluid and operates above CO2's supercritical point. The entire cycle relies on efficiency, where the design of the CO2 compressor is crucial.
Enhanced Oil Recovery
Excess CO2 from refinement can be directed back into an oil well to boost production levels. Much of the CO2 isn’t released into the atmosphere, making it a potential method for carbon storage and re-use. Under the lower pressures at the Earth’s surface, CO2 and oil separate from each other.
Carbon Capture Storage (CSS)
Capturing and storing the CO2 released from burning fossil fuels has emerged as a promising technology. By placing CO2 under high pressure, it can be saved in underground reservoirs and help mitigate carbon emissions.
