Company will showcase its new vapor recovery unit
ST. LOUIS, March 17, 2014 — Vilter Manufacturing LLC, a company of the Emerson Climate Technologies business segment of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today announced it will exhibit at the 79th annual convention of the Gas Processors Association to be held April 13–16 in Dallas. Located at Table #9, Vilter will showcase its upgraded vapor recovery unit (VRU).
In addition, Vilter is developing a standardized gas plant refrigeration package with a variety of upgrades designed to reduce overall cost, improve reliability and allow remote monitoring. This new system will complement its current offerings of highly engineered and customized gas compression packages.
Vapor recovery came to the forefront in August 2013 when the EPA issued a final ruling (40 CFR part 60, subpart 0000) requiring the capture and recovery of at least 95 percent of tank vapors produced in virtually all crude oil and gas production, transmission and distribution.
Vilter’s new VRU is part of a unique vapor recovery process that employs Copeland Scroll™ compressors because they require very low oil flows and are hermetically sealed, eliminating virtually all volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. They also require considerably less maintenance than prior units because the Copeland Scrolls have no shaft seals, drive belts, drive couplings, lube points or system oil pump.
“Not only does the Vilter VRU help companies comply with EPA mandates, thereby avoiding fines,” said Thomas Hoopes, director, hydrocarbon industry, Vilter Manufacturing, “its design helps prevent premature shutdown due to low oil viscosity and excessive carry-over, eliminating the potential lost revenue.”
In addition to Hoopes, industry expert Bill Goggins, district manager — gas compression and packaged systems, will be in the booth to answer questions about Vilter’s new VRU or any of its other gas processing solutions targeted to the midstream market.
