Woodward offers user-configurable controllers designed to control and protect industrial-sized axial or centrifugal compressors with one or two recycle loops.
Woodward’s collaboration with OEMs and end-users has made us a trusted provider of new technology, application expertise, and support over the past 145 years. We are a market leader in developing control solutions for compressor OEMs worldwide—our field-proven compressor controls and protection technologies safely operate some of the world’s largest compression systems. Woodward systems can be purchased as part of a compressor OEM’s package or separately for new or retrofit applications.
Woodward’s integrated turbine-compressor and motor-compressor control systems maximize availability and performance in upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas applications, helping owners run their compression systems and processes at peak efficiencies. All of our systems meet industry standards for machinery control and safety, and are fully tested in a dynamic simulation environment—enabling you to reduce both system development and commissioning time.
Custom Control Solutions
Woodward’s custom compressor control systems utilize field-proven hardware packages (MicroNet Plus, MicroNetTMR or the Flex500) and OEM-qualified algorithms to improve compressor train performance, reliability, and protection.
Compressor Safety Systems
Machinery Protection Standard API670 requires compressor safety systems be used on axial compressors and centrifugal compressors based on application criticality. Woodward is a leader in delivering safety systems for industrial turbomachinery that allow OEM and users to meet this standard.
