Gas Compressor Skids

F.B. assembles a variety of air and gas compression systems: centrifugal, reciprocating, liquid-ring and screw type for customized applications.

In our Workshop we assemble Process Gas Compressors, electrically or gas-motor driven, on baseplates and complete with piping, supports, valves and instrumentation.The gas compressors are designed and manufactured in accordance with international standards such as ASTM, ASME, API, BS, DIN, UNI, AWS, ANSI, ENand PED.Moreover, particular standards are applied inhazardous areas and additional standards such asEMC/EMI, CU-TR (ex GOST), BV, DNV-GL, ABS etc. are followed.

Our jobs


Lube Oil Units, Seal and Control Units are designed to supply pressurized lubricating oil to different kinds of industrial systems. They include pumps, heat exchangers, filters and control instruments.

Lube Oil Units (skids) inject oil at controlled temperature into the bearings before, during and after the compressor operation.They are assembled on steel structures and designed to be safely transported at Customer Site. The range of the units assembled in our workshop include:

Lube oil systems for Motors

Lube oil systems for Compressors

Lube oil systems for Gas Turbines, Steam Turbines and Generators


Cooling water units for reciprocating and centrifugal compressors, including pumps, tanks, heat exchangers,filters and control instruments


Seal Gas Panels are manufactured in accordance with ISO 10438:2008 Part 4 and API 614,5° Edition, Chapter 4.

These panels include instruments, manifolds, filters, piping and tubing.

They are designed and manufactured in compliance with applicable codes and standards and in accordance with Customer specifications.

  • Pressure values up to 550 bar;
  • Design temperature from-50 to +200 °C
  • Atex Zone 1, Zone 2 components
  • NACE MR01/75 components
  • Filtration grade up to3 µm
  • Structures in carbon steel and stainless steel
  • Piping in stainless steel (304L, 316L, 321, etc.), low temperature carbon steel,duplex, Inconel orSanicro
  • Tubing with double ferrule fittings



These units are designed in order to avoid liquids, solids and liquid aerosol inlet inside natural gas driven motors and turbines. The natural gas is overheated in order to avoid the formation of liquid condensate and its consequent insertion inside the combustion chamber of motors and turbines.

The pre-heating system is made by means of bundle tubes/electrical heat exchangers or water-bath heaters.

The final filtration required assures the specific quality of motor/turbine natural gas, so as to guarantee the proper duration and reliability of the system.

Our jobs


Piping and spools assembly by means of precision welding machines.

Our welding procedures are in accordance with ASME B31.1, B31.3 for a large variety of materials, such as carbon steel, chromium-molybdenum-V (P91), stainless steel, duplex, super duplex, inconel and hastelloy.


F.B. spa have long experience in fabrication of pressure vessels for the oil & gas sectors, designing and manufacturing many types of pressure vessel in a wide range of sizes and materials (carbon steel, Low temperature steel, stainless steel, duplex, hastelloy and many others) forboth ATM and High pressure, under PED-mod. H and ASME U-STAMP. Pressure vessels are entirely enginered, realized, tested, treated, coated and certified at our workshop.


Baseplates for off-shore and on-shore applications, realized and machined in our dedicated area.

Approximate dimensions:L. 11m, H.4,5m, W. 1,4mand weight up to60÷70 tonnes.
