Testing the Second Compression Stage
Pneumofore engineers met the challenge to design a second gas compression stage from 8 to 14 bar(g). We 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 but without any result. The gas processed is mostly CH4. The compressor is Atex certified, assembled as Skid and with FAD flow of 6.000 l/min. After the fine-tuning of pressure and temperature, we have 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.
