“By the time natural gas has traveled a hundred miles on its way to the big city, it has lost much of its pressure.
A good ‘boost’ is needed to get it over the next 100 mile part of its journey…and huge Worthington engine-compressors are there to provide it.
These 2,000 hp giants–powered by the very fuel they transport–are Worthington’s answer to a very special need of a rapidly growing gas-pipeline network.”
This is a 68 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1952 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
