Ful-Vane™ Gas Compressors

Developed from Fuller® design and technology, FLSmidth’s Ful-Vane™ Gas Compressors provide more compression with less energy. Available in flow ranges from 50 SCFM to 3000 SCFM and with discharge pressures up to 250 psig, Ful-Vane gas compressors are well suited for a wide variety of gas compression and vapor recovery applications, including:


  • Flare Gas Recovery
  • Stocktank Vapors
  • Wellhead Gas
  • Coalbed Methane
  • Gas Gathering
  • Fuel Gas Boosting
  • Natural Gas
  • Biogases
    • Landfill Gas (LFG)
    • Digester Gas
  • Propane and Butane
  • Sour Gases
  • High CO2 Gases

Our unique design features include:

  • Large inlet area provides efficient capture of large gas flows
  • Only three moving parts for minimal mechanical losses
  • Constant blade-to-cylinder contact maintains compression efficiency
  • Shaft and bearing design minimizes drive losses
  • Suited for operation with variable frequency drive

The Ful-Vane compressor is available in a full range of single-stage and two-stage sizes which efficiency capture a wide range of gases.  FLSmidth can offer varying scope, from a bare-shaft compressor to a complete compression package – custom built to project specifications or FLSmidth standards.

Internally, carbon fiber vanes ride on a thin layer of lubricant to provide positive sealing or each compression chamber. Since the vanes compensate for wear, the compressor maintains its design efficiency over time.

The Ful-Vane compressor boasts a simple design that is easily field repairable. Ful-Vane compressors also feature rebuildable housings and rotors.  Rather than being replaced, the inner cylinder can be re-bored numerous times, and the rotor can be reslotted up to three times.  This means the compressor can be easily rebuilt to factory specs several times over its lifespan. This greatly reduces the long-term cost of ownership.

Equipment is designed and manufactured in the United States with parts and service provided through a network of service centers. FLSmidth Pneumatic Transport is responsible for the Ful-Vane compressor, and is part of the global FLSmidth organization, a worldwide engineering and manufacturing organization.
