The low-cost natural gas compressor development funded by Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) is already paying dividends for future standard scroll compressor offerings. With successful development of the P05H012A-BLDC-C, the unit is likely to be the first production-ready model utilizing design and manufacturing technology learned from the government-funded cost reduction campaign. The compressor will be a flagship standard product for the medical industry. Once in full production, it will be very affordable and easy to integrate.

Aggressively small and inexpensive, the P05H012A-BLDC-C squeezes into a tiny envelope and weighs under a pound. Even more impressive is the ultra-low noise – the unit is barely audible when running. Extensive reliability testing is scheduled throughout 2018. By 2019 the P05H012A-BLDC-C is expected to be fully validated and in full volume production.
