  • Warren Rupp, Inc. Announces AirVantage™ Launch, Revolutionary New Technology that Provides Up To 50 Percent Energy Savings

    AirVantage is a revolutionary, high efficiency Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pump from Warren Rupp Inc. that saves energy, improves plant efficiency and reduces maintenance costs on both the supply and demand side of a compressed air system. It reduces energy costs by cutting air consumption at the pump, and automatically adjusts as process conditions change to maintain constant flow without manual operation or adjustment. Beta tests and field trials have shown that AirVantage provides up to 50% energy savings compared to traditional AODD pumps. Available in 2- and 3-inch pump sizes, AirVantage AODD pumps are available under SANDPIPER® and Versa-Matic® brand names. This new technology reduces air consumption and saves energy by reducing the amount of air volume needed per diaphragm stroke. The diaphragm is able to operate at full stroke with reduced air volume (SCFM) while sustaining desired stroke rate and fluid flow.

  • Siemens Seal-Less Compressor Completes Test Program For Future Subsea Processing

    STC-ECO – the Siemens seal-less compressor unit for dirty-gas and subsea applications – has successfully completed its factory test program. Following a highly comprehensive program aimed at qualifying the unit for subsea gas compression, the machine will now undergo a further extended test program. Completion of the factory acceptance tests is a major milestone in the system qualification program and for marinization of the equipment, which will be an important cornerstone for subsea processing at a water depth of 3,000 meters in the future. Factory acceptance testing of the STC-ECO compressor system marked an important milestone. The test covered thermodynamic performance including internal cooling, rotor dynamic behavior, motor performance and stability of the bearing system. The next phase of the qualification program will concentrate on reliability testing with the focus on performance and mechanical robustness. A further phase will target wet gas such as liquid injection into the main gas stream and further endurance and robustness tests. The entire development and qualification program aims at the achievement of a complete, mature system, qualified for subsea compression.
