Superior Engines and Compressors

Superior is a brand of industrial combustion engines and reciprocating gas compressors that has a history which stretches back to 1889. It was in this year that Patrick J Shouvlin opened a small industrial engineering shop in Springfield, Ohio. In effort to capitalize on the growing need for oil pumping engines, P. J. Shouvlin developed and sold his first gas engine for oilfield pumping applications. Twenty-five years later, the Superior Gas Engine Company was selling a line of engines which ranged from 20 to 100 horsepower.

Throughout the 1920’s the company employed a staff of roughly 500 individuals and was said to be the largest singly owned company in the world according to the Clark County Historical Society.

In the early 1960’s a line of Superior Compressors specifically designed to operate with Superior Gas engines were manufactured. In addition, these Superior Compressors could also be operated with a turbine or motor-driven.

The decison to develop and introduce a Superior gas-engine compressor could not have not come at a more percect time. These reciprocating gas compressors served as a complimentary product instead of competing with existing products. Moreso, these compressors could be manufactured in the same Superior facilities and sold by the existing sales personnel.

In 1964, Ohio experieced another oil boom which only increased the demand and sales for Superior engine compressors. In 1965, the name White Diesel Engine Division was changed to White Superior Division and refinements to existing engine and compressor lines continued. As part of these enhancements, twelve and sixteen cylinder V-engines were developed. These engines ranged from 400-2,650 horsepower and could be used for
In the early 1970's, White Superior Division was acquired by Cooper Industries, currently known as Cameron. At the time of the acquisition, Superior was primarily manufacturing equipment for the oil and gas industry. Cooper continued to focus on marketing Superior products in the oil and gas industry and completely withdrew from manufacturing products for marine diesel production.

The legendary Superior product line has continously been refined over the many decades of its existence. This refinement has been key in the successful development and manufacturing of top quality prouducts that exceed our customers' expectations. Presently, Cameron offers a wide range of compression solutions for your unique gas applications. All of our compressors are designed for applications flexibility and engineered to provide rugged, reliable service and deliver superior operating value.

The SUPERIOR® brand name has a long-standing reputation for high quality engine and compressor products, dating back to 1889. Since 1976, when the SUPERIOR® brand was purchased by Cameron, over 10,000 SUPERIOR® engines and compressor frames have been manufactured and installed worldwide in a variety of high-speed and medium speed applications. New 12V and 16V configuration SUPERIOR® turbocharged gas engines are medium-speed and built for continuous, heavy-duty service. Optimal fuel/air mixing in the cylinder,timed fuel injection, and air-charged intercooling result in reduced fuel consumption and lowered emissions. The low compression (8.75:1) pistons keep dynamic stresses at a conservative level, provide for more stable operation and enhance engine tolerance to variations in types of fuel. The conservative horsepower rating of SUPERIOR® engines provides ample reserve for emergency situations. Intercooling with optimal valve overlap results in cooler combustion chamber parts while assuring lower fuel consumption, greater efficiency, longer service life and trouble-free operation.

Cameron offers a manufactures a wide variety of seperable compressors as well. These units include our high-speed, C-Force compressors, RAM, MH, WH and WG series compressors. The various series of seperable compressors contain a variety of different strokes can be fit with a variety of compressor cylinders that will maximize the output and production in a variety of different applications.
