Case Study: Air Compressor Solution Replaces Natural Gas Valve Actuation

SHARE THIS POST

C.H. Reed has partnered with Hartman & Hartman Construction out of Eighty Four, PA to provide a reciprocating compressed air solution for a customer in the oil and gas industry. The end user’s project is a green initiative to minimize natural gas released into the atmosphere during well pad valve actuation.

Historically, valve actuation has been accomplished using produced natural gas. After actuation, that natural gas is then released into the atmosphere. As an alternative to using natural gas, operators of these facilities are proactively making the switch to a reciprocating compressed air solution to reduce emissions and provide clean air to their pneumatic-operated instruments and equipment.

Hartman & Hartman fabricated buildings feature a self-contained, independently controlled, and integrated compressed air station. Each building is equipped with a tank-mounted Quincy reciprocating duplex compressor (with the second compressor for redundancy), a desiccant air dryer with filtration, heating and ventilation, and an Allen Bradley PLC touchscreen control package to fully automate the system. The 5 HP Quincy reciprocating compressors can deliver 17.2 ACFM @ 175 PSIG. Also available are cost-effective 1 HP and 2 HP skids for applications that require a lower CFM.

In the end, these air compressor buildings and skids provided by Hartman & Hartman and C.H. Reed drastically reduce emissions released during common processes, helping companies meet their environmental goals.
