Pipeline Service Compressor

Evacuate Pipelines | Eliminates Flaring | Accelerate Purging | Portable | Set & Forget PLC Control

The PS175 Pipeline Service Compressor is a 2-stage natural gas compressor intended to evacuate natural gas pipelines up to 1200psi for service. Isolated sections of pipeline are evacuated and discharged into an adjacent section of pipeline. Our PS175 compressor eliminates flaring and the associated environmental consequences while preserving scarce natural gas. As gas is not released during evacuation, the compressor can be located in built up and urban areas reducing the length of pipeline isolation required and allowing for faster service with less disruption to customers.

Trailer mounted and engine powered from pipeline gas, performance can be monitored remotely with real-time status on any web-enabled device. Operation is fully PLC controlled and automated. Compression will continue until stop conditions are met and shut down.

Standard Features

  • 2-stage compression for ΔP up to 900 psi
  • Natural Gas powered. No external fuel or power source required
  • Rapid setup and breakdown
  • Aftercooler limits discharge temperature to protect plastic pipe
  • Fully controllable based on a variety of parameters and stop conditions
  • Automatic operation and remote monitoring capability allowing unsupervised operation
  • Can be used for pig pushing or temporary boosting applications

Benefits

  • Completely eliminate flaring
  • Locate in urban areas to minimize disruption
  • Reduce isolated pipeline pressure to 0 psig
  • Energy savings and recovery of gas
