Flare Gas Recovery Systems (FGRS) are specialized compression packages, which aim to recover and repurpose gasses and emissions, such as methane/LPGs and sulfur dioxide, that would normally be burned during the flaring process. Key to the safe operation of refineries and petrochemical facilities, the process involves capturing the gas from the flare knock-out vessel and compressing it using liquid ring compressors. The so-recovered gases can be reused within the facility’s fuel gas system, as a refinery feedstock or for re-injection.
A FGR System provides a number of environmental and economic benefits to refineries, such as:
Garo liquid ring compressors are the key-element of Flare Gas Recovery Units, providing safe and reliable compression of refineries’ potentially explosive and dirty gases. Liquid ring technology runs at cooler temperatures and can work with a variety of seal liquid allowing for flexibility in treating toxic or corrosive compounds in the process gas.
Garo has patented a liquid ring compressor integrated system, able to compress and scrub refinery flare gases, using amine as service liquid. This system, called Garo WAIS (Washing Amine Integrated System) has a double scope: compress the gas and simultaneously clean it from H2S. The gas exiting the compressor is ready-to-use and does not need any other cleaning process through amine washing towers. Click HERE and discover more.
