Burckhardt Compression’s Laby®-GI Compressor solution perfectly matches the requirements of these processes:
Reciprocating compressor solutions offer the best in class gas control due to the insensitivity of this technology to dynamic suction/discharge pressure and mass flow changes and gas composition.
The Laby®-GI Compressor solution for BOG handling on FSRU’s on top of that maximizes the operational flexibility due to the use of temperature insensitive and contactless, oil-free labyrinth sealed pistons and piston rods, eliminating the need for gas pre-warming or compressor pre- cooling.
To mitigate vibrations that may damage the LNG tank systems of the FSRU, the Laby®-GI Compressor solution is fully balanced and vibration free.
Between the compressor stages, gas side streams to feed e.g. re-liquefaction, auxiliary engines or other processes allow multi-purpose compression and eliminate individual compressor equipment per process.
The Laby®-GI Compressor solution is designed gas tight to eliminate gas loss to the flare and N2 purging.
Burckhardt Compression’s BOG handling solutions for FSRU’s help the owner to minimize operational expenses (OPEX) by eliminating major wear parts like piston rings and packings with the result of highest availability and longest mean time between overhauls (MTBO).
Burckhardt Compression offers its compressor solutions as engineered packages. Our in-house competence includes compressor design and sizing, pulsation and vibration studies, plant engineering, instrumentation and PLC programming.
More and more merchant ships that are fueled by liquefied natural gas (LNG) enter the market. LNG tanks of different sizes are installed on those ships depending on the operation profile that these ships are designed for.
Reciprocating compressor solutions offer best in class fuel gas control due to the insensitivity of this technology to dynamic suction or discharge pressure and mass flow changes, gas temperatures and gas composition. The Laby®-GI Compressor fuel gas solution on top of that maximizes the operation flexibility due to the use of temperature insensitive, contactless and oil-free labyrinth sealed first compressor stages, eliminating the need for gas pre-heating or compressor pre-cooling. This enables the operators to immediately startup the compressor when needed.
LNG bunker vessels are used for refueling LNG-powered vessels at sea. Since gas evaporates continuously from the LNG, the tank pressure increases and must be controlled within the tank design pressure specifications. Burckhardt Compression’s Marine Compressor solutions offer easy and efficient BOG handling while dealing with limited space.
