Blackmer, a manufacturer of pumps and compressors, has launched a new series of triple-seal LB943 oil-free reciprocating gas compressors designed for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and anhydrous ammonia applications.

According to a Blackmer spokesman, the new compressors could be used in autogas applications.

11171_blackmer.jpg‘There very well could be applications within fleets and OEMs for this product,” he says. “Normally, there are pumps that are used in the autogas dispensers, but a compressor is used in other areas of the LPG/autogas fueling system. A perfect example would be if they have a fleet of taxis and need to do repairsâ�¦then they would need to evacuate the tank of all product and vapors before working on it. That's one little example of where a compressor like this would be used.”

Blackmer says the LB943 series compressors incorporate a double-distance piece design with three individual sets of packing to maintain product purity and prevent oil migration. The company adds the compressors are equipped with high-efficiency valves, steel pistons, oversize piston rings for wear resistance, steel-needle bearings for full rod load reversal and S3R oil seal technology for protection.

LB943 compressors are available with flow capacities from 7 cfm to 125 cfm (11.9 to 212 m3/h) at working pressures up to 350 psi (24.1 bar).

Blackmer is part of PSG, a Dover company.
