LMF supplies high-pressure compressor systems with more than 30 years of experience, used as energy sources for the operation of the airguns. These systems are developed and built according to the special requirements of seismic offshore applications.

Simultaneously with

maximum efficiency and
top availability

the compressor systems used also guarantee

minimal maintenance efforts as well as
smallest possible dimensions and lowest possible weights.

LMF offers a comprehensive range of seismic compressors on capacities (FAD) ranging from 2 to 78 m³/min (70 to 2,755 cfm) .

2 to 6 m³/min (70 to 210 cfm) capacity:
air-cooled piston compressors designed for permanent operation
8 to 16 m³/min (280 to 560 cfm) capacity:
water-cooled piston compressors in cross-head design
21 to 78 m³/min (740 to 2,755 cfm) capacity:
Compound systems as optimal solutions for highest capacities with smallest possible space requirements and weights. A rotary screw compressor is used to feed the piston compressor with pre-compressed air. Both compressors are directly driven by a centrally located electric motor or diesel engine.
