Centrifugal Compressors


Centrifugal compressors by MAN Diesel & Turbo are well proven and extremely robust. They serve within wide pressure ranges and for various gases.

Centrifugal compressors exist in two main design configurations: Barrel type (RB) and the horizontally split type (RH). Centrifugal compressors are used in numerous industrial segments:

  • Upstream processes
  • Midstream processes
  • Downstream processes
  • Petrochemical processes
  • Industrial gas production

Typical performance data

Horizontal split design

  • Suction flow rates up to 708,000 m³/h
  • Max. discharge pressure  80 bar

Barrel-type design

  • Suction flow rates up to 230,000 m³/h
  • Max. discharge pressure 1,000 bar


  • Highest efficiency and proven impeller design
  • Pre-designed sealing systems for easy assembly
  • Service-friendly design and easy maintenance
