FS-Elliott Co., LLC Ships First PAP PLUS® EH Frame

Export, PA, June, 2013 – FS-Elliott Co., LLC has successfully tested and delivered the first production PAP PLUS® EH frame to a copper smelter facility in central Arizona. Two PAP Plus® EH units were shipped to the facility as part of an air separation expansion project. This order marks the largest shipment to leave the manufacturing facility located in Export, Pennsylvania, which currently employs approximately 300 individuals in Westmoreland County.





The PAP Plus® EH is the latest from the PAP (Plant Air Package) line. PAP Plus® delivers all the benefits that have made PAP Plus® compressors an industry leader-exceptional reliability, high performance, ease of ownership, and exacting customization options. PAP Plus® EH compressors augment these features with higher flow ranges, greater horsepower, and maximum design flexibility to meet varied global industry needs as well as local codes and packaging requirements.


Designed with two to four stages of compression, PAP Plus® EH provides operating pressures up to 350psig (23.1 BarG).


Features of the PAP Plus® EH include:

•  Rub tolerant seal design with very low leakage and high reliability.

•  Stainless steel impellers that do not require disassembly to remove rotor(s) from casing.

•  Motorized oil mist eliminator preventing the need for seal buffer for operation and start-up.

•  Horizontally split casing design allows for quick maintenance without removal of rotors.

•  Optimized gear lubrication and cooling system for high efficiency and reliability.

•  Modular design that can be shipped globally via standard containers.


“The advanced aerodynamic design allows wide operating ranges, while maintaining high efficiency levels,” said Kevin Eads, Global Marketing Manager – Air Separation at FS-Elliott Co., LLC. Customers can expect flow ranges of 15,000 to 24,500 ICFM (26,340 to 41,700 m3/hr) and 1,600 to 4,500 HP (1,200 to 3,400kW).
