Steps all flare gas recovery operators should take to avoid unplanned downtime
Safe and efficient operation of liquid ring compressors in flare gas recovery applications depends on careful consideration of process factors in order to ensure trouble-free operation.
Facility operators, including process engineers, specifiers, purchasers and maintenance specialists, along with their equipment suppliers should collaborate to identify and communicate all process requirements and materials during the design and selection of the compressors and related systems. Failure to do so can lead to inefficient flare gas recovery, unplanned downtime due to damaged machines, and costly environmental penalties.
This white paper describes the main process challenges that should be evaluated during the bidding, purchasing and implementation of liquid ring compressors. By applying the recommendations shared here, you can ensure that the operating limits of the compressors are not exceeded and the required flare gas recovery rate is achieved.
