Ariel's largest compressor frames, the KBB and KBV are rated up to 7,460 kW. Each compressor features a modern, durable design with a strengthened internal structure. This family of frames is recommended for use in pipeline transmission and high-pressure injection applications.

  • Full Pressure Lubrication: A frame-driven lube oil pump provides cooled oil through a full-flow oil filter to all moving parts in the frame. A divider-block system supplies metered oil to cylinder bores and rod packings.

  • High-Strength Bolting: Durable Grade 8 bolting on all loaded joints combined with specially designed fatigue-fighting bolts on all valve caps ensure ultimate holding strength.

  • Rigid Connecting Rods: The JGE/JGK/JGT compressors feature durable connecting rods manufactured from forged steel with 4 bolts and a heavy-duty “I” section.

  • Rugged Crossheads: One-piece, long-life crossheads with hardened, ground steel crosshead pins and direct, full-pressure lubrication at the top and bottom for minimum wear.

  • Durable Pistons and Rods: JGE/JGK/JGT compressors feature wear-resistant ductile or gray iron pistons and precision-ground alloy steel piston rods with locking crosshead nuts. Rolled threads are 1/4” under rod diameter for easy installation
