Recommended reciprocating gas compressors…
Corken's PROPANE MISER is the first and only 2-stage compressor skid technology that captures all propane from a railcar down to 0 PSIG.
Corken's single-stage reciprocating gas compressors work well in low pressure recovery. In high pressure applications with working pressures up to 600 psig, a two stage compressor is recommended. For high flow and large volume applications like scavenging from several well sites or a large storage tank, Corken’s horizontal reciprocating gas compressors are a great choice.
If the application site does not have electrical power for a motor, the compressor can be driven by a diesel powered engine.
Materials of construction…
Materials of construction are based on the type of gas being recovered. For example, natural gas typically uses Buna-N O-rings with aluminum gaskets while process gases typically require a more exotic O-ring material like Kalrez® (Kalrez is a registered trademark of DuPont) or PTFE. Corken also offers a corrosion and abrasion resistant coating called MC1002 for all gas wetted components.
