Gas Compression Systems, Inc. extends its offerings with the Electric Motor Booster (EMB) Series. This electrically-driven booster eliminates the need for filtered, dried air by instead driving GCS’s proven reciprocating piston technology with a cam mechanism (see animation below). The EMB utilizes a variable frequency drive to control cycle rate with ease, delivering over 4 cubic feet per minute at top speed. With over 2,000 hours of testing, the Electric Motor Booster is ready for pipeline applications. It only requires one-third the horsepower of a regenerative turbine booster at only one-fifth the cost. The brochure is available for download on our Products page.
