Solar’s C16 family of gas compressors are designed for single-body and tandem applications with the Saturn® 20, Centaur® 40, Centaur 50, Taurus™ 60, Taurus 70, Mars® 90, Mars 100 and Titan™ 130 gas turbines. These compressors combine high efficiency and wide flow range with a robust design and ease of restaging. They are particularly well suited for low flow and high pressure applications.

C16 gas compressors have the latest state-of-the-art technology combined with the experience and reliability that comes with building and installing over 5000 compressors. These compressors are designed in compliance with API 617, a requirement for the severe environments and operating conditions this equipment may encounter.
