The LMC/BMC-311 is a single-stage centrifugal compressor delivering multi-stage performance.
- Flows to 2,000 ACFM
- Max working pressure to 1440psia (100 bar)
Based on more than 50 years of technological innovation, the Sundyne family of LMC / BMC integrally geared centrifugal compressors are precision engineered to provide pulsation- and vibration-free operation. Built to meet exacting API-617 / ISO 10439 standards, the BMC will run continuously for 5 years, delivering oil-free process gas with no emissions. These compressors are designed to meet the unique Best Efficiency Point (BEP) of each customer's application, resulting in a tailor made solution that reduces process loss and eliminates emissions. Additionally, these horizontally configured compressors are ideal for skid packaging — due to their unique modular baseplate — and are easy to install into any process environment. Backed by our global network of Authorized Service Centers, Sundyne LMC and BMC compressors are the ideal solution for handling the most demanding high-head, low-flow applications in the refining, petrochemical, LNG, power and mining industries.

Integrally Geared Centrifugal Single Stage Heavy Duty Compressor
Sundyne Corporation single-stage centrifugal compressors typically provide the same performance range as multi-stage, piston driven positive displacement compressors, allowing for smaller, easier to maintain equipment that requires overall less energy to keep running.
In the 1960s, Sundyne (then Sundstrand Fluid Handling) emerged as the leading expert for integrally geared centrifugal compressors.
