Proven Results

COOPER CASE STUDY: A Wyoming customer recently experienced a catastrophic event on one of their Cooper-Bessemer KM-5 compressors. The Casper team dispatched a service crew immediately to assist in unit tear-down and inspection. The crankshaft, compressor base, distance pieces, piston rods, and four of the five crosshead guides were sent to the Casper repair center for full inspection and repair. The Casper facility repaired the #4 distance piece for temporary use until a new one became available. Our engineering group provided quick guidance on full inspection and modifications. We are now in the process of re-coating four compressor piston rods with Tungsten Carbide via our HVOF process in our spray booth. Praise to our Casper team for executing the full breadth and depth of our offerings as the OEM for the Cooper-Bessemer product line.
