140TCH Pipeline Compressor

A gearless, low-emissions, motor-driven unit.

Natural gas is abundant, inexpensive, and the cleanest burning fossil fuel. Compressors are an essential part of the natural gas pipeline network—and Ebara Elliott Energy’s 140TCH Pipeline Compressor is designed specifically for the pipeline transmission market.

This recently introduced compressor configuration is a gearless, low-emissions, motor-driven unit specifically designed with Ebara Elliott Energy’s proven expertise to power long-distance gas transmission. It comes with a direct-coupled high speed induction motor powered by a variable frequency drive (VFD) and a standard footprint with custom aerodynamics for optimum efficiency, as well as an extended operating time between scheduled overhauls. A standard gear-driven solution is also available.

The gearless configuration provides several advantages including a smaller footprint, reduced lube oil requirements, and higher net efficiency. The high-speed VFD-powered motor significantly reduces CO2 and NOx emissions as compared to a gas turbine.
