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.
According to GIIGNL’s 2018 Annual Report, global LNG trade expanded by 3.5 Bft3d in 2018, to 38.2 Bft3d—a record 10% increase.
Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
