S&S Technical was approached by a leading manufacturer to re-design a CO2 booster package used with an expanded polypropylene reactor for the production of lightweight thermoplastics. The system was designed to boost CO2 gas from 300 psig up to as high as 800 psig and provide a minimum flow rate of 365 scfm.
Recently, S&S Technical was approached about developing a portable hydraulic drive compressor package for a client in Ohio. The compressor would be used to evacuate LPG products – Propane, n-Butane and Isobutane from damaged railcars, allow them to complete repairs and re-certify them for service.
Process gas compressor applications have changed very little over the last several decades. What has changed are the requirements for an oil-free compressor that can minimize Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) fugitive emissions and provide long term reliability.
When designing a pipeline metering skid there are considerations as to which type of meter to use, Coriolis or Turbine. Temperature, system foot print, and flowrate are a few to be considered as there are positives and negatives with each. To make the best decision let’s review based on the fluid or gas being metered through the pipeline.
