GEA Bock – ATEX offshore applications

Southern Sales & Services provide a comprehensive range of options and custom specifications for ATEX offshore platform refrigeration and air conditioning systems.

This is backed by our standard key product range of GEA Bock ATEX rated refrigeration compressors, spares, packaged air conditioning, controls and refrigeration controls.

In the production process of oil and gas and especially in case of gas compression, for example storage and transport of liquefied gas such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbonic acid, chlorine and methane, temperature control plays a vital role.

In the oil and natural-gas sector, industrial refrigeration technology assures safety in the process and quality in the product: cooling removes water from the energy medium. This prevents the formation of methane hydrates and enables feeding natural gas through the distribution mains with a constant calorific value. This means that the flames in your cooking stoves and heating systems always burn uniformly.
