Compressor Overhauls and Repairs

pic14GCC and GCC partners provide a detailed evaluation of your compressor problems. Our representative will gather all field data from your operators and evaluate the data. GCC will then interact directly with factory representatives from the compressor packager, driver manufacturer, compressor and control system manufacturers to remedy the problem.

These have included simple piping upgrades to extensive foundation redesigns. Typical applications include pulsation and acoustical analysis resulting in structural redesign, and may require new bottles and piping.
