PET Compressors

Horizon And Horizon Plus – Pet Compressors Up To 3,529 CFM

Designed With Total Cost Of Ownership At The Forefront Investment

More Airflow From The Equivalent Platform

HORIZON allows a flow increase for a given compressor frame of 30%. Less number of cylinders for a given flow – hence a significant investment advantage.


More Capacity For The Same Motor

Thanks to its new technology and design, HORIZON is the market benchmark in terms of efficiency. Both its specific power consumption and flow per installed horsepower are better than any other PET compressor in the market.


Less Spare Parts, Longer Service Life

HORIZON design minimizes the number of wearing parts. Additionally, the new components applied in this range ensure the longest service cycle. The modularity of HORIZON offers interchangeable parts both for modeling and mechanical transmission parts.

Horizontally Opposed

Horizon Operates With Virtually No Vibration

Cylinders are horizontally opposed, with crankpins displaced by 180°, cancelling out the inertia loads. 

 Virtually Without Vibration.
 Longer life of mechanical parts as they do not transmit excessive force or produce fatigue on structural parts of the compressor, 20 years machine lifetime.
 Providing stability of the high-pressure air pipes.
 No anti-vibration pads or special foundations are required, +2kg/cm2.
 Excellent adaptation to frequency converter up to 55%.
 The compressors and all peripheral components are on skid.

Double Acting

Horizon Design Gives Optimum Performance

 Double-acting cylinders minimize air leaks.
 Less mechanical losses and lower differential pressures.
 Achieving lower operation temperatures at each compression stage. Less energy wasted.
 Longer valves, rings, and gaskets durability, no premature wearing.
 When unloaded, venting the intercoolers is not required when unloaded, meaning efficiency increases and energy consumption is lower.
 High-performance cooling chamber with no valves in cylinder heads.
 A minimum of 2 suction / 2 discharge valves per stage, preventing one valve failure that might stop the machine.

Direct Coupled Motor

Horizon Is Fitted With The Most Reliable And Efficient Direct-Coupled Transmission

 Direct coupling means 5% energy saving compared with other energy transmission methods.
 Virtually absence of mechanical energy loss.
 Longer duration of shaft alignment.
 Without belts, there are no maintenance needs.
 Absence of radial forces, implying.
 Longer life for the motor.
 Longer life for compressor and motor bearings, with longer lubrication intervals (20.000 hours).
 No more manual tensioning requirements for reliable operation.

Modular And Compact Design

Horizon Assures Smooth And Easy Installation

 Self-contained sets, even with peripherals pre-connected.
 Single inlet and outlet points for water and electricity.
 Centralized control for the entire ensemble.
 Fitting all the skids in standard container sizes.
 Interchangeable parts among different models.
 Easy mobility and relocation.
 Small size wearing parts. Cylinders at the man-hand level.
 No cranes for maintenance.

Frequency Converter Is Standard

Horizon Takes Full Advantage Of The Energy Saving Via An Integrated Frequency Converter

 Average 20% energy, saving when regulating.
 Up to 60% energy saving at a low regulation regime.
 Regulation span reaching 55% of the compressor capacity.
 Absence of intensity starting peaks: starting = nominal intensity.
 Allows more starts per hour.
 Minimizes pressure fluctuation when regulating.
 Additional energy saving.
 Stable pressure on the pipeline.
 Mechanical protection for the compressor:
 Fewer unloaders’ actions.
 Lower starting torques.
 Integrated supply with the electric cabinet.
 Harmonic protection in different filtering degrees.
 Furnished with new equipment or retrofitted at a later date.

Heat Recovery System

Horizon Can Collect Hot Water From All It’s Coolers For A Variety Of Plant Uses

 Average power saving of 20-40% through the hot water supply.
 Providing hot water up to 80ºC in each of the stages. Customized solutions with water up to 90ºC.
 Special compressor heat exchangers with double cooling modules.
 Customized final heat exchangers adapted to customer needs.
 Furnished with new equipment or retrofitted at a later date.
