Case 08: Leakage, Loss of product - Methane emissions while compressor stands still

Typical machines affected

Pipeline and gas storage compressors which are vented frequently


Indications

  • High loss of valuable process gas and emission of big amounts of unflared environmentally harmful gas (e.g. methane)

Causes

  • Many compressors, especially in pipelines or gas storages, must be vented when they are in stand-still mode due to the limited continuous operation of displacement seal gas boosters
  • The venting shall prevent dry gas seal contamination, when the piston booster is switched off

EagleBurgmann solution

RoTechBooster – centrifugal seal gas booster

Results & benefits

Reduced costs:
  • RoTechBooster allows pressurized stand-still
  • Saves up to 50,000 € per compressor and year in valuable process gas
Reduced emissions:
  • Reduced environmentally harmful gas emissions
