Compressor Industry Standards

Sundyne centrifugal integrally geared high speed compressors meet rugged API-617 and ISO 10438 standards. These cover the minimum requirements for axial compressors, single-shaft and integrally geared process centrifugal compressors and expander-compressor for use in the petroleum, chemical, and gas industries services that handle air or gas. Sundyne compressors also meet API-614 standard requirments for lubrication systems, oil-type shaft-sealing systems, dry gas face-type shaft-sealing systems, and control- oil systems for general or special purpose applications.


The Sundyne PPI diaphragm compressors are compliant with API-618 standards for reciprocating compressors.
