When time and wear take their toll on hard-working gas compression equipment, it is sometimes necessary to re-machine key parts so they can, once again, perform at their peak efficiency. Cooper’s field machining services save time and money by providing a cost-effective alternative to equipment removal. Our experienced service technicians can perform multiple machining tasks onsite including base and frame laser alignment, wireline, line bore machining, metal spray, compressor liner replacement, and more.

Introducing the Microsoft HoloLens 2, a self-contained holographic headset that allows field service personnel to use video conferencing and mixed reality while working “hands-free.” Field workers can share real-time views of the engine-compressor problem while remotely working with one of Cooper’s 50+ engineers from our technical team who can diagnose and troubleshoot. Launched in Q2, 2022, the new HoloLens system is just another revolutionary way Cooper is changing the compression industry for the better.
experience, expertise, & exceptional service
WE’VE BEEN AT THIS FOR A WHILE
No one has been servicing compression and power equipment longer than Cooper. When an engine
or compressor does not operate to its fullest rated capability, it is our reputation on the line. That’s why
we place so much value on the training and expertise of our service personnel. They are, as we like to
say, the lifeblood of our company. When you have a need for engine
or compressor service, we are confident that our Cooper team will be there fast with a solution that fits your needs.
We work safely. We work efficiently. We work with common sense.
“The Cooper crew that was sent out to do the overhaul did a great job in getting the work done. All
performed well and did a great job getting the unit overhauled. All three guys were very skilled, very
safety oriented, took and followed directions well. If at all possible, I would like to see them all come
back to do the overhaul on the next unit. I enjoyed working with these guys and am looking forward to
seeing them again.
