HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

SwRI engineers have designed, fabricated, and tested a carbon dioxide compressor to be used in a new water production system installed on board the International Space Station. To meet the challenging design requirements and constraints, the compressor was designed as a water-cooled, electric motor-driven, oil-less, two-stage, reciprocating machine.
