NCA Marine Seismic Compressors
Marine Seismic Air Compressors are a critical part of any offshore seismic survey. The compressors are capable of recharge the seismic air guns continuously and rapidly for a long time, during the seismic data acquisition.
Seismic compressors are installed on seismic ships, normally working in harsh environments, and should be designed to have the minimum possible weight and dimensions. Depending on the pressure and air volumes needed, a Reciprocating Atmospheric Compressor or a compound system of both Rotary Screw and Reciprocating Piston Compressors may be utilized.
Offshore Seismic Compressors are designed to have high availability and low maintenance needs to enable a continuous and reliable seismic survey operation in the oceans.
