Commissioned in 1998, El Furrial is a high-pressure gas compression facility (113,000 site horsepower) that receives gas via two pipelines (30-inch and 24-inch) at about 1,100 to 1,000 psig
. Centrifugal and reciprocating compressors then compress the gas up to an MAOP of 7,705 psig
before discharge seven miles down a 14-inch pipeline delivering gas to five injection wells along the route.
75,000 PPH 395 PSIG
Saturated Boilers (Skid and Trailer-Mounted)
If the compressor operates at higher set-point air pressure levels then the test range between 90 psig
and 100 psig
, then the leak rate and the associated costs will be significantly higher.
This is achieved thanks to a maximum drive pressure of 7 bar (100 psig
), which allows the AHD to build up discharge pressures up to 15 bar (218 psig
That means at an average annual ground temperature of 21[degrees]C (70[degrees]F) and a hoop stress of 1,200 psi (240 psig
), the average failure time is about seven years.
Rotary compressor and dryer equipment designed for 100 psig
is not happy when operating at 115 to 120.
Ross Hydropneumatic Tanks and Pressure Vessels are built in any capacity up to 100,000 gallons, with working pressures from 50 to 200 psig
, for indoor or outdoor installation.
The carbon steel vessel pictured, for example, has a full holding capacity of 9,750 gallons and is ASME-stamped for 50 psig
internal pressure to full vacuum at 200[degrees]F.
The SFC 18S has a flow range of 33-119 cfm at 125 psig
and is available with pressures up to 217 psig
This 300-gallon sanitary holding tank is designed for 75 psig
internal pressure at 350T and also rated for full vacuum.
KNF Neuberger's NF2.35 liquid micro diaphragm pump delivers 235 psig
continuously, and is maintenance-free throughout its entire lifetime.
