L.A. Turbine Declares War Against Wires

L.A. Turbine’s new turboexpander-compressor doesn’t have any strings to hold it down, an intentional move on the company’s part to keep all the necessary connections and wires closer to the skid.

By placing these components on the skid, gas processing operators can have their turboexpander packages preconfigured ahead of time and ready to go once it lands onsite.

It’s all part of L.A. Turbine’s plan to make AMB-equipped turboexpanders popular and less costly for gas processing midstream applications, especially with the lure of fewer wires and components.
