Standards enhance the safety of industrial operations, assure quality, minimize costs and reduce waste. For these reasons FIMA Maschinenbau GmbH also follows the German, European and American standards.

Especially the American Petroleum Industry (API) standards set high requirements for industry. FIMA builds and provides machines which meet these specific requirements. Our manufacturing range of compressors are tailor made in accordance with API 617 (chapter 1, 2 and 3), API 614/670/671/672/673 and DIN EN standards. In conformity with these standards we assist you to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your plants.

Radial compressors

FIMA is the acknowledged world market leader in low-volume radial compressors. This type of compressor is frequently implemented in chemical processing plants or refineries to return some of the flue gas to the process.

FIMA radial transmission compressors include single- and multi-stage process gas compressors, process air compressors and mechanical vapour compressors.

In the integral version the impeller is directly mounted on the high-speed shaft. Alternative versions are fitted with intermediate bearings.

Field of application:

  • Flow rate: 150–300.000 m3/h.

  • Max. system pressure: 150 bar

  • Pressure ratio per stage: up to 2,5

  • Rotation speed: up to 35.000 rpm

  • Drive power: up to 5 MW

Hermetically encapsulated blowers and compressors

HETICO (hermetic tight compressor)

On this version the impeller and motor are combined in a single casing to avoid the necessity of dynamically stressed gaskets between the processing area and surroundings.

MACOUCO (magnetic coupling compressor)

In comparison to conventional machines, the MACOUCO version offers a high level of environmental friendliness thanks to the design principle on which the magnetic coupling is based.

MAHECO (magnetic hermetic tight compressor)

In addition to these technical properties, the MAHECO versions are equipped with an active magnetic bearing that effectively reduces friction and wearing even further. Benefits: high speeds, virtually unlimited life span and improved efficiency.

Field of application:

  • Flow rate: 20–10.000 m3/h,

  • Max. system pressure: 150 bar

  • Pressure ratio per stage: up to 1,5

  • Rotation speed: up to 15.000 rpm

  • Drive power: up to 250 MW

Radial blowers

FIMA radial blowers are characterized by their rugged design (heavy duty industrial version) and endurance. We offer customized solutions in pressure-resistant, gas- and corrosion-proof designs for the majority of applications in the chemical and petrochemical industries.

Thanks to their high safety and quality standards, our system solutions are frequently implemented along with environmentally hazardous substances or potentially explosive compounds.

Field of application:

  • Flow rate: 80–500.000 m3/h.

  • Max. system pressure: 100 bar

  • Pressure ratio per stage: up to 1,5

  • Rotation speed: up to 12.000 rpm

  • Drive power: up to 5MW

Zone-0 blowers

FIMA zone 0 blowers are used to transport permanently explosive gases, for instance when emptying tanks in tank warehouses or in flue gas plants in pharmaceutical operations that use explosive media like acetone. FIMA is holder of construction certificates to the EG directive for explosion groups IIA, IIB1, IIB2, IIB3 and IIB.

Safety specifications:

  • In the system interior: zones 0, 1, 2, 21 and 22

  • In the system surroundings: zones 1, 2, 21 and 22

  • Explosion groups and temperature categories of the gas-air mixtures: zone 0 (IIA, IIB3 and IIB, T1 to T4), zone 1 and 2 (IIA, IIB and IIC, T1 to T4)
