Reciprocating Compressors

KS40 & KS20 Recip. Compressors

KS40 is OTA Compression’s proprietary high performance, low volume reciprocating compressor that is uniquely engineered for oil field vapor recovery applications. The highly efficient, four-cylinder KS40 has a horizontally-opposed head design that prevents liquids from sitting on the top of the pistons and can evacuate liquids during both operating and standby modes.

More About KS40 & KS20 Compressors

The heads and valves are easily accessible and allow for the removal of individual cylinders, and for ring replacement or cylinder wall inspection.

This compressor is highly reliable, easy to service, and affordable to maintain because of these key features:

The KS40 compressor can be powered by 20HP electric motors or can use 3.0L GM 40HP certified natural gas engines where power is unavailable. Depending on application parameters, it can deliver up to 300 Mscf/d and up to 150 psi discharge pressure. Most applications with ounces of suction pressure can only deliver 30-60 Mscf/d of flow at 75-125 psi discharge range.

The KS20 is based on the same compressor but operates on only two cylinders. It can provide all of the benefits of the K40 design. The KS20 is powered by a 10 HP electric motor for lower volume vapor applications. Depending on the application parameters, it can deliver up to 150 Mscf/d and up to 150 psi discharge pressure. Most applications with ounces of pressure can only deliver 15-30 Mscf/d of flow at 75-125 psi discharge pressure.
