Pneumofore launches the Atex-certified K Series Gas Compressors
Pneumofore, leading manufacturer of vacuum pumps and compressors since 1923, launches the new K Series gas compressors: the Rotary Vane solution for gas treatment and processing applications. With 2.5 to 10 bar(g) pressure and up to 2690 m3/h, the K Series cover the gas compression requirements of many industries, from the oil&gas and energy sectors to chemicals, from the metal industry to food processing and more.
The K Series gas compressors handle a wide range of gases, including: methane (CH4), ethane (C2H6), carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen (N2), biogas and natural gas. Each K Series compressor is designed according to the specific gas composition and application. For this reason, a full range of accessories and optionals are available according to the customer’s needs.
The K Series’ high-quality, sturdy design meets the most stringent safety criteria. Moreover, these gas compressors are certified for extreme and explosive environments according to the Atex directive for Zone 1 (Atex II 2 / 2G). Their low rotation speed guarantees longevity and low vibrations, with significant benefits in terms of safety and for a low noise working environment. Their simple design, with few moving parts, ensures maximum reliability and reduced operational cost.
The K Series gas compressors are the solution for high energy savings, low operational cost and constant efficiency over decades. Pneumofore’s state-of-the-art Rotary Vane technology ensures trouble-free operation, stable performance and the lowest Life Cycle Cost in the market. Pneumofore K Series gas compressors will be presented for the first time at Achema 2018, the world’s leading tradeshow for chemical engineering and the process industry, held from 11 to 15 June in Frankfurt, Germany. Pneumofore will welcome you at Booth E42 / Hall 9.1.
As discussed in the HPI Market Data 2019 report, published in November by Gas Processing & LNG’s sister publication, Hydrocarbon Processing, rising propane and ethane supplies in the US have been enabled by greater production of shale gas.
Industry Trends: Norway targets global LNG market
Norway aims to become a leading player in the global LNG market during the next several years through the establishment of new, large-scale LNG terminals.
Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
