Vapor Recovery Unit (VRU)
FET Vapor Recovery Units (VRU) aid in the removal and recovery of unwanted or excess vapors present in crude oil or distillate tanks. These units allow operators to comply with prevailing emission regulations while recovering valuable hydrocarbon gas. The recovered vapors, that may have otherwise been flared/vented without the VRU, can then be used as fuel or for revenue generation.
For natural gas producing wells and installations, VRUs can collect low-pressure vapors from various low-pressure systems and boost their pressure up to the required inlet for the main compressors or for fuel usage. A vapor recovery system for storage tanks can be used to recover vent gas from crude oil and distillate tanks at storage facilities.
Vapor Recovery Units are mechanically driven and are powered by an electric motor or gas engine, depending on available power or energy source. The unit works on a similar principle as other compression systems based on ideal gas law. Our VRU systems can be employed in a wide range of oil and gas installations/plants with several variants available
The True Power of VRUs & Benefits of VRUs
Cost Savings & New Revenue Streams
Vapor Recovery Units capture vapors from oil, condensate storage gas, or low volume gas from two oil separators that are operating at low pressure. The recovered vapors can then be utilized for fuel gas, which is needed in facilities or sent to the pipeline. The vapor can be used as a potential revenue stream or as cost savings from fuel gas use.
Our Vapor Recovery Unit captures hydrocarbon vapors that are usually vented. FET’s VPUs help operators reduce emissions by 95% more than conventional storage tanks and similar vapor solutions.
Reduce Fire Hazard
Failure to collect tank vapor leads to a high methane count that can combust at any time. But you can minimize the risk of fire by collecting the combustible vapors from the tank.
Reduce HSE Risks
The protection of the health, safety, and environment of the operating area are important. FET’s Vapor Recovery Units allow operators to reduce HSE risks. You can use our VRUs to collect carcinogenic and flammable gases that can create serious health issues. We offer highly effective VRUs that enhance environmental protection in a simple, clean, and efficient manner.
When it comes to fuel vapor systems, we continue to lead the charge as vapor recovery system manufacturers in the USA. Contact us to learn more about our state-of-the-art Vapor Recover Units and how they can help operators eliminate vapor from distillate tanks.
