In numerous compressor systems throughout the United States, highly flexible couplings are helping with more economical operations. These couplings keep process gas equipment generating pressure for transportation through gas pipelines, or for underground storage, remain operational throughout the year and changing power conditions.

Voith’s patented Vorecon with Dual Torque Converter is expanding its footprint in the U.S. market, with five Vorecons equipped in compressor stations transporting natural gas from the Marcellus shale formation into markets in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast states. These Vorecons are increasing transport capacity by over 25 percent, and improving reliability and efficiency in the process. The Vorecon with Dual Torque Converter is a variable speed planetary gear with two matched torque converters. It delivers high efficiency, even into the lower speed range, providing an efficient way to control the speed of large pumps and compressors in use in a variety of fields. It is up to two percent more efficient than variable frequency drives (VFD).
