Radial compressors


Our radial transmission compressors include single- and multi-stage

process gas compressors, process air compressors and mechanical vapour compressors. 


In the integral version the impeller is directly mounted on the high-speed shaft. Alternative versions are fitted with intermediate bearings.


FIMA is the acknowledged world market leader in low-volume radial compressors. This type of compressor is frequently implemented in chemical processing plants or refineries to return some of the flue gas to the process.


Standards enhance the safety of industrial operations, assure quality, minimize costs and reduce waste. For these reasons FIMA Maschinenbau GmbH also follows the German, European and American standards.


Especially the American Petroleum Industry (API) standards set high requirements for industry. FIMA builds and provides machines which meet these specific requirements. Our manufacturing range of compressors are tailor made in accordance with API 617 (chapter 1, 2 and 3), API 614, API 670, API 671, API 672, API 673 and DIN EN standards. In conformity with these standards we assist you to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your plants.
