Adapting integrally-geared technology to high pressure BOG applications
Atlas Copco Gas and Process has over 50 years of experience designing integrally-geared compressors (IGC) for the LNG market. Using our experience in low pressure BOG handling and fuel gas boosting, we were able to apply IGC technology to high pressure BOG handling.
Compared to traditional high pressure BOG technology, the inherent design of an IGC offers significant CAPEX and OPEX savings. CAPEX costs are reduced due to the BOG compressor mounting six process stages – both cryogenic and warm – on a single gearbox and skid. This reduces size and the need for multiple machines to manage your process.
OPEX reductions are the result of the inherent efficiency of the IGC design. Sharing a single bull gear, each stage is custom-engineered to run at the proper speed. This, along with precisely designed impellers maximize efficiency to keep your operating costs manageable.
With more than 8,000 integrally-geared reference units globally, we used our experience in the low pressure BOG and fuel gas boosting applications to adapt dry gas seals (DGS) on each stage of the high pressure BOG unit. DGS – a technology pioneered by Atlas Copco Gas and Process - offer the lowest seal leakage rates in the industry. This leads to a more efficient process and less methane emitted into the environment.
