Blackmer HD942B LPG Railcar Unloading Compressor System

S&S Technical was approached to design a custom LPG railcar unloading compressor system for a large midstream client’s terminal.  The client was requiring a 900 gallon per minute offload rate and the system needed to be fully automated in order to reduce the number of operators required to manage the offload.

Blackmer HD942B LPG Railcar Unloading Compressor System

Our design team was able to provide a fully automated solution that would integrate with the existing terminal DCS as well as provide the optimal flow rates and capacity control.  S&S selected the Blackmer HD942B compressor for this application due to their robust design features and proven reliability.  A common header with automated valving allows the operator to select which compressors will be online and which process they are handling – liquid transfer or vapor recovery.  A 15-inch, full color HMI provides the operator with an easy to use interface and the PLC with custom programming manages all of the communication.

Two systems were provided for this terminal – one was designed to handle Propane railcar offloads and the other to handle Butane railcar offloads.
