Testing the Second Compression Stage for Natural Gas Processing
Pneumofore met the challenge to design a second gas compression stage from eight to 14 bar(g). The company’s engineers worked for months to prepare the prototype in order to satisfy the request of a European liquefied natural gas processing company, which had contacted +10 other companies before but without any result.
The gas processed is mostly CH4. The Pneumofore compressor is Atex-certified, assembled as Skid and with FAD flow of 6.000 l/min. After the fine-tuning of pressure and temperature, the Research & Development team has now set the optimal operation limits.
This is a completely innovative solution, as we have no knowledge of the existence of any other similar solution, based on the Rotary Vane technology. A new machine is born.
