This amazingly efficient system has the ability to
pull a perfect vacuum, 29" at sea level, and discharge into pressure. Due
to the internal design, the compressor is nearly 100% efficient. Because
we use liquid to create a seal, there is no piston slippage or metal
to metal contact while compressing gas or air. The system will operate
over the full vacuum range from 0-29" hg. and discharge into pressure.
No minimum sizing restrictions means the compressor does not have to
move gas in order to stay cool. It will pump 1 mcfpd as efficiently as 500
mcfpd, depending on what the well will naturally allow. If
desired, the system can pump fluctuating volumes with no harm to the unit.
Although these systems were invented for natural and methane gas
compression, they may be used in any situation where vacuum is
Simple to Operate
Because this system is uncomplicated, it is extremely
easy to operate. Even if you have no compressor experience, this machine
will become your best friend. The Auto-Start feature will allow the unit
to re-start if it goes down on suction or discharge pressure.
System Will Not Overheat
The pump operates at constant horsepower
throughout the full vacuum range. This is possible due to the unique
patented flow design of our pump. No two parts ever touch and lubrication
is not required, therefore, temperature is not a concern.
Low Maintenance and "Abuser Friendly"
We enjoy staying in close contact with field people that
take care of our units. We encourage their input on any changes that can
be made so these units continue to be low maintenance. The pump
will perform 24 hours per day continuously under the
most demanding conditions and does not require any lubrication. There is
no metal-to-metal contact between rotating and stationary parts
in the pump. Due to the axial flow, the unit can be started in the flooded
state. The working components are totally enclosed allowing no exposure
to outside elements. During the pumping cycle, the gas is in
intimate contact with the sealing liquid and compression is nearly
isothermal. When handling saturated vapor-gas mixtures, the liquid ring
seal acts as a condenser, greatly increasing the effective capacity of the
pump. The direct contact between the liquid ring and the gas makes the
pump ideal for wet applications and for handling condensables that are
discharged with gas and liquid. The great thing is, even if you
make a mistake, the results aren't detrimental to the machine.
Our process works so well that it was issued patent
number RE 38,434. We incorporated various specifics to make the unit as
maintenance free and long lasting as possible.
What makes our system different?
The facts are: our system is very low maintenance, no
loss of seal fluid, pulls 28" of vacuum (depending on elevation) and
is the most efficient vacuum system designed.
We fabricate a quality product from top to bottom. We do not use hose to
connect fittings together; we use a solid sheet of metal on the topside in
order to contain any spills inside the drip rails; all flanges are
series 150, not cheap stamped metal; fittings are forged steel and
socket welded where possible; gage cock valves are carbon steel;
no brass valves are used only carbon or stainless steel; coalescent filter
is the highest quality available for longevity; the electric
panels are equipped with a Class I Div. II simple to use PLC that will
indicate reason for shutdown, not your typical non-code tattletale
Auto Compression Feature
Unlike other liquid ring compressors, when discharge
pressure builds and suction and discharge ratios exceed limitations, our
Autocompression feature begins to work. This feature allows the compressor
to continue function normally, just as if we were moving gas. When the
discharge pressure increases, the volumes will
decrease until the discharge pressure begins to fall, or suction
pressure increases, then the unit will automatically begin compressing
The unit operation is extremely quiet. It can be used in
residential, park, wildlife or Federal land areas. Placing the unit
inside a structure is not necessary.
Options for Liquid
Ring and Screw Compressors
Although constant attention is not required on our
systems, with these options, your life can be made even simpler.
Whatever your company color, just supply us
with the color code and we will be happy to use. We do have standard
colors for the U.S. Forestry and Parks and Wildlife services.
Cool gas to the desired pipeline entry temperature after
leaving the compressor.
Environmental Seal Fluid
We use a specially formulated seal fluid that was
designed to be used in offshore applications that will not harm fish, or
other aquatic organisms, and is adopted by the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Variable Frequency Drives
These control panels can be used to slow motor speed
down to desired levels or increase speed slowly to avoid the need for a
soft start panel. Phase converters can also be installed
to convert 480 single phase to 480 3 phase.
This can be added to take care of any liquids that
accumulate in the suction scrubber. This system will function if
your suction is on positive pressure or a vacuum.
Gives your personnel the ability to visually see that
your compressor is running without driving to it. The strobe
will blink while the unit is performing.
Allows your personnel to check the operation
of the machine from a computer or using a SCADA® type system. In the
event the unit goes down, you may alert specific personnel by page
or phone call.
