Single Shaft Compressor STC-SH

Single Shaft Compressor STC-SH
STC-SH Siemens Turbocompressor –
Single Shaft, Horizontally split casing
Robust and dependable
Siemens single shaft centrifugal compressors with horizontally split casings in the STC-SH series can be used for the majority of process applications. Appropriate for process requirements such as medium pressures and large volume
flows, the STC-SH is the preferred compressor for e.g. cracked gas, coker gas,
process air or carbon dioxide. The STC-SH
is also available with an overhung impeller – a lower-cost alternative design for
large volume applications especially with
steam turbine drive.
Designed in accordance with API 617, this
product line corresponds with all technical
requirements imposed by the market.
With the integration of Siemens Turbomachinery Equipment, the STC-SH series
was extended and now even covers chlorine applications.
Highlights
The perfect match for most process applications, especially for toxic and inflammable gases, contaminated
gases and low temperature services
Flexible design concept combines custom-tailored design with standardized components for maximum reliability
Easy access to compressor internals

Design Concept STC-SH
Flexible adaptation
The design concept of STC-SH compressors
is very flexible, allowing easy adaptation to the requirements of specific process applications (e. g. oil or water injection).
Casings are mostly fabricated, but can also be cast for special applications (e.g.
low temperature). Stator parts (e.g. return
vanes) are 100 percent machined, thus ensuring high aerodynamic predictability. The
horizontally split casing split permits easy
access to all compressor internals by simply
removing the upper half of the casing.
These centrifugal compressors can be
equipped with up to ten impellers, divided
into up to four process stages per casing.
Designs include straight through, doubleflow and back-to-back configurations. A
well-proven, fully parametric aerodynamic
design, based on comprehensive in-house
research and development, allows for the
perfect matching of compressor performance and rotor dynamics for any application. Compressors of the STC-SH series
are project-specifically designed to meet
individual customer needs.
Besides conventional oil-lubricated tilting
pad bearings, active magnetic bearings
can be used, allowing 100 percent oil-free
operation of compression trains in combination with electric motors, which also
have magnetic bearings.
Designed to handle dry chlorine
A special design was developed to compress dry chlorine gas up to 12.5 bar. This
machine type with two up to four stages
comprises a three-chamber labyrinth
shaft sealing, intercoolers, a separate oil
system, variable inlet guide vanes and gear (skid mounted with compressor).
Typically, STC-SH for dry chlorine is driven
by an electric motor.

Highlights
The first stages of all casing sections
can be equipped with adjustable inlet
guide vanes (IGV) allowing additional
throughput and optimum turndown
with maintained high efficiency
Dry gas seals, whether single, double
or tandem, are used as standard as
shaft end seals
Up to four process stages with up to
ten impellers
Intercooling and sidestreams
Easy access to internals
100 percent machined stator parts
Active magnetic bearings as a referenced option
Control Systems
Perfect protection and process control via flexible Siemens control systems:
Anti-surge protection
Performance controllers acting on mass
flow, suction- or discharge-pressure
Controlled by either throttling, bypass
operation or speed variation, thus operation with all available drive systems, i.e.
electric motors, steam and gas turbines
Fully- or semi-automatic start-up- and
shutdown sequences exactly matched
to your process demands
Certified safety systems available
Local and remote control
Load-sharing controller for parallel trains
