Proven and robust AIRTRAIN technology

MAN Energy Solutions delivers AIRTRAINs consisting of steam turbine driven main air compressor (MAC) and booster air compressor (BAC) or separate motor driven MACs and BACs. All these solutions meet the customer´s oxygen demand for units between 500 tpd and 4,200 tpd.

Air separation units (ASU) were traditionally used in the steel industry. Today, ASUs are used for many other purposes such as:

  • Partial Oxidation of hydrocarbons for the production of synthetic fuels (GTL, CTL, BTL) and other hydrocarbons from gas, coal or biomass.
  • Petrochemical applications
  • Food industry
  • Semi-conductor industry
  • Production of medical gases
  • Plus various other uses

Competitive solutions for all project types

Thanks to our proven and robust technology and well-optimized economics in both investment and operating costs, more than 80 AIRTRAINs and hundreds of motor-driven compressors in air separation plants are now in operation worldwide.

The comprehensive product portfolio of MAN Energy Solutions and our in-house engineering capabilities provide competitive solutions for customized as well as standardized projects.
