Sullair Expands Product Line to Include Centrifugal Compressors
September 24, 2015 - Sullair has announced that centrifugal compressors are now available through Sullair distribution channels.
Sullair and IHI, two industry experts, have been part of a joint venture since 2004 designing, producing and selling advanced centrifugal compressors. The line, branded Sullair powered by IHI, will be supported by key distributors throughout North, Central and South America.
“Our centrifugal compressor line allows us to expand into new markets and applications,” said Brian Tylisz, Vice President of Oil Free and OEM at Sullair. “Sullair is well known in the 5-600 hp rotary screw range. Now our centrifugal line gives us access to enhanced technology, allowing us to expand up to 30,000 hp.”
Sullair offers two families of centrifugal compressors: the T-series and f-series. T-series compressors come in complete packages, with models ranging from 168 to 2,306 hp producing flows from 553 to 11,772 cfm. f-series compressors are available in both packaged and non-packaged options – custom designed to meet the user’s specific needs – available from single stage up to four stages, offering flow rates up to 118,000 SCFM. Both series offer 100% oil-free air, a highly efficient design to reduce energy usage, and horizontal split design gearbox allowing easy access to all moving parts, simplifying maintenance.
Centrifugal compressors are heavily used in steel mills, petrochemical, chemical, oil and gas, air separation and automotive industries, among others. Sullair centrifugal compressors are an addition to an already extensive line of portable and stationary rotary screw air compressors, compressed air treatment equipment and rotary screw components for OEMs. Globally, IHI and IHI-Sullair have produced more than 10,000 centrifugal compressors. IHI has been supplying centrifugal compressors since 1970.
