Claro high efficiency all-stainless-steel liquid ring compressors are quiet, proven low-maintenance, & delivered on a skid complete with all biogas safety components for quick & easy connection. Due to the absence of wearing parts such as pistons & sliding vanes, liquid ring compressors are known for their simplicity of design & low maintenance requirements. The impeller assembly is the only moving part, which rotates freely in the casing without metal-to-metal contact. This means that no internal lubrication is required—no oil contamination of sludge or drains & no messy & expensive oil to change on a regular basis. Also, the use of water serves as a natural explosion-proofing device in a biogas environment.
Our units have an especially robust & efficient construction: a solid monoblock stainless steel casting & longer shaft for extra strength; extreme-duty sealed bearings that are specially isolated from the process area; solid, fixed alignment unlike V-belt driven arrangements; & a special impeller that uses less seal fluid.
We can also reduce water intake from 50% to 100% with a closed loop, full-recovery configuration or, under certain conditions, use 100% plant effluent. Claro compressors have run for 7+ years on plant effluent without maintenance.
Claro compressor units also function at a low noise level—maximizing operator safety & comfort.

- Supplies 100% oil-free biogas—no oil contamination of sludge or drains.
- Low operating noise level—much quieter than sliding vane compressors (no ear protection required; operators can speak beside the unit).
- Uses water or plant effluent as a compressant—no messy & expensive oil to change on a regular basis.
- Water compressant serves as natural explosion-proofing in a biogas-handling environment.
- Plant effluent can be used in lieu of potable water or a full water recovery system implemented.
- Special impeller uses less seal fluid.
- Energy efficient—delivers impressive energy cost-savings as part of a Claro Big Bubble™ Mixer system.
- Long-term reliability/ultra-low maintenance.
