Strong materials. Flexible transport options.

Capturing flare gas can involve handling gas which is very corrosive, either because of the H2S.  content and/or the combination of CO2 and water. UAC’s pressure vessels and container solutions can handle this with the plastic liner and stainless steel (316L) end boss as well as stainless steel piping.

Capturing flare gas can involve transport by land or by sea – or a combination. Often it requires handling a corrosive environment which may reduce the life of many types of transport modules for CNG.

Because the liner is made of polyethylene and the end boss of 316 stainless steel, UAC’s pressure vessels are well suited for flare gas capturing. The containers are approved for land transport according to ADR, which is the most used standard for land transport. UAC has extensive experience with marine applications to handle either only marine transport or a combination of marine and land transport.

Saving energy, while reducing emissions.

Many industries have turned their interest to a safe and efficient methods of reduction of potentially dangerous or redundant gases, generated through daily operations of various land-based  businesses or of the offshore sector. Reduction of flare gas promises both environmental and financial benefits.

Whether the source of access gas is an associated gas, gas plant or well-testing emissions, flaring systems are installed both on- and offshore, on board gas carriers, in ports, at storage tank farms and along distribution pipelines.

UAC pressure vessels and container solutions are particularly well suited for wet gas, often containing water, CO2  and H2S. Pressure vessels from UAC have a plastic liner, stainless steel end bosses and piping, which are ideal for both land transport and various marine transportation alternatives, or a most appropriate combination.
