As manufacturers continue to increase production capabilities to meet customer orders, the demand for compressors with higher speeds, higher pressures, lower and higher temperatures and larger sizes is also growing. A properly functioning compressor is critical to optimal plant operation. Compressor failure can bring down an entire plant or bring production to a halt, costing a company $250,000 an hour or destroying millions of dollars of catalyst. Therefore, a reliable, well-designed dry gas seal system included with a compressor can make a difference to a plant’s bottom line.
