What Are Vapor Recovery Units (VRU’s)?
A Vapor Recovery Unit (VRU) is an engineered compression package, which aims to lower emissions levels coming from the vapors of gasoline or other fuels while recovering valuable hydrocarbons to be sold or reused as fuel onsite. A package for vapor recovery is designed to capture about 95% of Btu-rich vapors, generating many benefits, guaranteeing less air pollution, and recovering gasoline vapors to be used as fuel.
Benefits of a VRU System
- Profitability & Reduced Operating Costs: Recovered vapors can be re-ejected in oil wells, sent to users, or used as fuel, resulting in increased revenue or cost reduction for the facility.
- Social and Environmental Responsibility: Venting is eliminated and emissions of dangerous pollutants are reduced up to 95%. This demonstrates a commitment to social responsibility and environmental protection.
