After two successful upgrades for CO2 compressors at a large Chemical facility in Germany Psicon has received the purchase order for the upgrade of the third compressor at this location.


Psicon has developed performance upgrades to increase the performance and reliability of the 1500 kW reciprocating compressor. We also upgrade the facilities up-and downstream of the compressor.


Psicon designed and manufactured new cylinder assemblies, crosshead assemblies, and a new process scrubber for the first two compressors and also for this third compressor.

The manufacturing of the parts started in November 2020 and all parts of the compressor will be delivered to the site in July 2021. 


The Psicon team will execute the complete compressor upgrade in 5 weeks after which the upgraded compressor will successfully start up.
