Photos of dry gas seals in the field


Major compressor upgrade job - replacing wet seals with dry gas seals. Project: Oil refinery at Angarsk Petrochemicals (Rosneft), Angarsk, Russia, 2009. The transfered gas is petroleum gas with high content of solids and heavier fractions condensate!

  This is the old wet seal. The compressor is horizontally split. The wet seal was part of the lubricating system so with the wet seal removed the lubrication system had to be modified.
