Atlas Copco and Processing Division will introduce its new cryogenic high-pressure BOG handling technology at Gastech 2019.
Using cryogenic low-pressure boil off gas (BOG) and fuel gas boosting reference machinery, Atlas Copco Gas and Process has engineered a compressor which handles cryogenic high-pressure BOG applications.
The machine is the first to combine two cryogenic and four warm stages on a single gearbox and skid, allowing for a small, more efficiently operating machine.
The application of dry-gas seals in a cryogenic high-pressure BOG centrifugal compressor is another first for the type of machine. Compared to traditional carbon ring seals, the dry gas seals allow for higher efficiency and lower methane leakage in the environment.
“Applying integral gear technology to cryogenic high-pressure BOG handling is a true accomplishment by our engineering team,” said Tushar Patel, Global Head of Marketing at Atlas Copco Gas and Process.
“We are pleased that we can now offer our customers the efficiency and reliability our IGC machines are known for, now in cryogenic high-pressure BOG handling.”
Atlas Copco Gas and Process can be found at booth #M280 at Gastech 2019, which will be held between 17th-19th September at the NRG Centre in Houston, Texas.
