Building on the successful experience of the DATUM® line of compressors, Dresser-Rand developed a new compression concept – the DATUM Integrated Compression System (ICS). The compression system is engineered with centrifugal separator technology incorporated on the compressor rotor to provide an efficient, compact solution to compression system design. The DATUM ICS is designed for onshore, offshore, and subsea applications.
Features of the DATUM ICS system include the high-efficiency DATUM centrifugal compressor technology; Dresser-Rand’s proprietary centrifugal separation technology; a high-speed, close-coupled, gas-cooled motor; magnetic bearing rotor system; dedicated unit controls; process coolers, valves, instrumentation, and interconnecting piping – all packaged in a compact module design. The DATUM ICS is a complete compression system that can be applied to all markets – upstream, midstream, and downstream – with a small footprint, reduced weight, and at the lowest total cost. Each DATUM ICS integrated compression system is factory-tested and provided as a fully assembled module. As a result, installation and start-up times are reduced, and production could begin sooner than otherwise possible with traditional modules.
