Before entering the compressor, gas passes through a filter station that captures liquids and other unwanted particles.
The filter station has a capacity of 10.000Nm3/h, it consists of 2 x 100% capacity gas filters mounted in parallel. The duplex configuration enables continuous operation without any downtime for a change of filter elements. When the 1st natural gas filter is taken off-line for maintenance, the 2nd natural gas filter is valved-in to permit non-stop operation. Further, the 1 Working + 1 Standby configuration enables 100% availability factor and no downtime.
This enables continuous operation of the compressor 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
For the production of CNG, we use three stage-reciprocating piston heavy duty balanced compressors.
The total capacity of the compressor is 7.300nm3/h, which satisfies the current production level.
