LMF supplies fully-automated, self-sustaining compressor systems for the evacuation of natural gas from pipelines as part of the maintenance and repair measures. According to the project-specific rating, the remaining pressure in the pipeline can be lowered to values between 1 and 7 bar (14.5 to 101 psi).
This will drastically reduce natural gas emissions into the atmosphere.
In order to achieve a minimum of residual pressure, the systems come with a patented, automated switch between one- and two-stage compressor operations.
The compressor aggregate is driven by a gas engine, in order to use the gas available in the pipeline and to avoid the necessity of an additional energy source. On customer’s request, the motor can also be a diesel engine.
