Cost of Compressor

  1. Apr 6, 2009 #1
    I need to know the cost of a compressor that can be used to compress 59 kg/h methane from 1 atm to 25 atm. The work required by the compressor is 9.36 kW.

    Any idea where i can find the cost of compressors?

    The quickest way would be to Google 'compressors'. The best way, which might take a bit longer, is to wait for Fred Garvin to respond.

    Are you looking for cost to purchase, cost to operate or the entire cost?

    Also, would you be wanting electric or diesel driven? Do you need supporting infrastructure like accumulator tanks or possibly driers or filtration?

    You want fries with that?
