Natural gas is now the leading source of electricity generation in America and a rapidly growing source of power worldwide. Today’s gas turbines, bigger and more efficient than ever before, require a significantly higher feed pressure than their predecessors, one well in excess of the fluctuating pressures in a typical gas pipeline.
As a result, they need Fuel Gas Booster (FGB) compressors that can satisfy the steady gas flow rate and high-pressure needs of the turbine, while handling the fluctuating gas pressure at the inlet.
These turbines represent significant investments and, as such, are expected to perform at a high level for decades. Further, FGB compressors must do their job with steadfast reliability, because if the compressor fails, the turbine shuts down too.
