TGSK integral gear

Integrally geared compressors and expanders for various gases need to operate reliable at challenging conditions and high speeds. Therefore, we design each integral gear unit tailor made to the requirements of our customer and their application.

We pay special attention to the impeller and casing interfaces as well as the thrust requirements and solutions for each unit in close collaboration with our customer.

Using automated data exchange with our customers (like shaft and bearing data for rotordynamics) we increase efficiency of the design process – for you and for us.

Your advantage:

  • Customer specific concerted interfaces
  • Applicable for compressor drives, expansion turbines and combined cycles.
  • Driven by electric motor, gas and steam turbines, integrated expansion turbines and combinations
  • Impeller connection with Hirth toothing or acc. customer requirements
  • Increased efficient with our thrust collar design available for many applications
  • Individual speeds for each stage realised with multi-shaft-design
  • Detailed rotordynamic analysis and improvement by our calculations specialists
