11/13/2013 | HIPOWER SYSTEMS Debuts New Natural Gas Conditioning Products This Year's at POWER-GEN International
Lenexa, KS (November 13, 2013)—HIPOWER SYSTEMS, a manufacturer of power-generation and power distribution equipment in the U.S. and Canada, today announced it will debut two new gas-processing accessory lines―Processed Gas Polishing Fuel Scrubber models FPS-100 and Unprocessed Gas Conditioning System models FCS-25, FCS-50 and FCS-100―at POWER-GEN International. The event, which is widely recognized as a world stage for power industry innovations, ideas and solutions for more than two decades, will take place November 12-14, 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
“HIPOWER SYSTEMS is a pioneer in driving power-generation solutions to the oil fields, and these latest products are important, not only for HIPOWER SYSTEMS, but also for our oil and gas industry customers,” said HIPOWER SYSTEMS President Rafael Acosta. “Operators who burn natural gas as their power-generation fuel source enjoy significant fuel savings compared to diesel, but the gas must be clean enough not to clog sophisticated internal components. These two products can handle a substantial portion of the cleaning duties for all available natural gas sources.”
FCS-25-50-100: The FCS Unprocessed Gas Conditioning System line is designed primarily to process raw natural gas to provide a dehydrated and consistent BTU for safe, clean utilization in high-speed natural gas and bi-fuel applications. Contaminates such as free liquids, heavy hydrocarbons, water vapor and H2S (hydrogen sulfide) are common problems when trying to use unprocessed gas―such as well-head gas streams―from field locations. The FCS line of unprocessed gas conditioning systems removes or reduces many of the impurities that can cause “dirty” natural-gas related engine failure and lowers pressures safely at a range from as high as 1440 psi to below 100 psi. These portable, passive dehydration systems are skid mounted on a heavy-duty carbon steel frames with large forklift pockets and 360-degree overall protection from forklifts, cranes, skid loaders and other types of equipment used to move the equipment. Outdoor-rated components are NEMA 3R and the pressure vessels meet ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) codes.
FPS-100: The FPS Processed Gas Polishing Fuel Scrubber models line is designed specifically to remove water and condensates from small well-head streams to provide a dehydrated and consistent BTU for utilization in high-speed natural gas and bi-fuel applications that require safe, clean natural gas. Polishing fuel scrubbers are important for second-stage or maintenance cleaning after unprocessed gas has been conditioned initially. The compact, modular polishing, gas-filtration system design allows easy access to any vessel for routine maintenance and yet protects the entire component from direct contact with forklifts, cranes, skid loaders and other types of equipment.
“The debut of these natural-gas conditioning solutions represents the first time that products so specifically targeted to the oil fields have debuted at POWER-GEN,” said Acosta. “We invite conference attendees to stop by our booth and learn more about the amazing cleansing transformations these products achieve with even well-head natural gas.”
