Roots Systems is the world’s leading manufacturer of blower, booster and vacuum pump packages for process industries, both onshore and offshore, using API Standard 619 rotary-lobe gas compressors manufactured in our factory in the UK. Roots Systems has been supplying rotary-lobe compressors since 1974.
Each one of our compressor packages involves one or more of our four principal areas of expertise.
We supply packages that conform to the Equipment for Explosive Atmospheres Directive (ATEX), ANSI/NFPA 70 ‘National Electrical Code’ (NEC), CSA C22 ‘Canadian Electrical Code’ (CEC) or the IECEx System.
We can manufacture machines that can operate at pressures from a high vacuum to over 150 bar (2175 psi). Our single-stage Duragas machines 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.
Our qualified engineers design the blowers and packages using computer selection programs and the latest 3D CAD technology. This ensures the optimum selection of blowers and ancillary equipment, while keeping within the required footprint, and the prompt submission of correct documentation.
