Mechanical Construction

Standard materials for the compressor are cast iron for the cylinder and carbon steel for the shaft. The rotor parts are steel. The liquid piston compressor has another feature that compensates for low efficiency. By using special materials of construction and compatible liquid compressant, unusual or difficult gases may be compressed. By using titanium internal materials and water as a compressant, gases containing wet chlorine can be compressed. This is a very difficult application for most of the other compressor types.

Both rolling element and split sleeve bearings are used. Normally, packing is used for shaft sealing or for special services. Mechanical contact seals can be used.
