Mining Gas Compressors
Wittig offers complete container solutions for extraction of methane gas out of disused underground coal mines and feed to the local gas grids. The pioneering spirit of Karl Wittig was responsible for the invention of the rotary vane compressor in 1908. The idea to compress gas and air with a simple rotating action was developed over the following decades and improved to near perfection.
This important application allows flammable Methane gas which left unchecked can pose a serious fire risk, to get successfully extracted, compressed & delivered safely to the main gas grid.
