Since 1974, Roots Systems Ltd has been supplying rotary-type positive-displacement compressors (also known as ‘roots-type blowers’ or ‘vacuum boosters’) to many leading process companies and contractors worldwide.
Roots Systems Ltd excel in the design and assembly of custom packages for challenging environments and has built up an unrivalled experience in a wide variety of applications and operating conditions.
Our oil-free compressors comply with API Standard 619 and can handle corrosive, flammable, radioactive and toxic gases for process applications both onshore and offshore. Our packages are designed with the protection of your process, personnel and equipment in mind. We can supply you with all the necessary safety features and instrumentation for monitoring, alarm and shut down.
We supply packages that conform to the Equipment for Explosive Atmospheres Directive (ATEX) for use in hazardous areas.
We can supply compressors that can operate at pressures over 150 bar (2175 psi). Our single-stage Duragas compressors can generate differential pressures of up to 4½ bar (65 psi). We supply multi-stage compressor packages for higher differential pressures.
Our sealing arrangements can prevent process gas from escaping and/or contaminants from entering the process gas, according to your requirements. Our gas-tight compressors handling some of the most dangerous gases, such as hydrogen sulphide (‘sour service’) are safe and reliable.
Qualified engineers design the blowers and packages using computer selection programs and the latest 3D CAD technology. This ensures optimum selection of blowers and ancillary equipment and the prompt submission of correct documentation.
