GEMINI Compressors SERVICE & REPAIRS

Our field service technicians have the most comprehensive on-machine analysis capabilities in the industry. Our portable diagnostics systems are much less intrusive than on-board systems. In fact, they actually reduce the number of on-board sensors required. We can perform a full range of comparative and trend analyses and diagnostics at your site to improve the performance, mechanical condition, and reliability of your high-speed compressors. In-field monitoring by a Cooper specialist enables immediate action to increase the efficiency and operating performance of your Gemini high-speed reciprocating compressors. 

GEMINI compressors UPGRADES

As the OEM, Cooper provides technology and engineering services for Gemini separable compressors. With our advanced technologies, expertise, and project management experience, we offer Gemini compressors upgrades to improve efficiency, reliability, and maintenance costs.

To further strengthen our upgrade portfolio for Gemini separable compressors, Cooper acquired HOERBIGER’s Engines Services (HES) division in 2019. Cooper now offers even more upgrade technologies for all our engine and compressor lines, including Gemini.

EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY & ABSOLUTE DEPENDABILITY

Gemini’s legacy dates to 1870 when August Witte opened Witte Iron Works in Kansas City, Kansas. For decades after, August and his son, Ed Witte, continued to grow their business producing gasoline and diesel engines for generators and agriculture use. Gemini Motors bought Witte Engine and converted the engine for natural gas usage and compression.

Energy Industries was established in 1969 by B. D. Holt and Mark Hulings. Energy Industries provided gas compression powered by Caterpillar engines, and they had purchased the line of high-speed compressors from Chicago Pneumatic, redesigning the compressors and cylinders into the high-speed compressor that we know today.

Gemini eventually bought Energy Industries to expand the line of high-speed compression that would evolved into the Gemini equipment of today.
