Corac was established in 1996 on the Science Park at Brunel University with the primary objective of researching and developing technologies in the field of gas compression with innovative use of gas itself in the bearings. From the very start Corac has focused principally on R&D in the fields of natural gas compression and enhancing ...
Corac Energy Technologies specialised in the design and manufacturing of bespoke high speed motors and generators using proprietary permanent magnet rotor and oil-less air bearings. Corac motors and generators are suitable for operating in various applications including standard industrial duty, liquid tolerant and canned machines for corrosive environment.
Corac Energy Technologies provides complete patented designs, prototype building and testing services for a range of high speed, oil-free turbo compressors.
The highly efficient machines suite a range of power and pressure needs and are completely oil-less, utilising patented hydrodynamic gas bearing technology.
Many organisations could use renewable energy technologies to generate electricity from the waste heat generated by their processes. Whether the heat is in the form of hot air or liquids, using a Corac expander could recover this energy to drive an integrated generator to produce electricity.
Saudi Aramco, owner of the world’s largest oil and gas resources, has a large network of surface pipelines which require additional boosting from intelligent gas well equipment to ensure pipeline capacity flow and optimisation. Corac is conducting a research and development programme in conjunction with Saudi Aramco for an in-pipe gas compression solution, offering Saudi Aramco the potential for significantly improved control and flow of its gas assets.
Eni S.p.A. is amongst the major oil and gas exploration companies in the world. Corac is working with Eni to develop a downhole gas compressor that will extend the life of declining wells, improve gas well production and deliver gas to the surface efficiently.
