Oil and gas production and processing facilities, refineries, and pipelines are now taking aggressive steps to reduce nat gas emissions and capture hydrocarbon releases. 2016 EPA regulations severely limit nat gas emissions from four major sources:
Therefore, vapors that previously may have been flared or just vented must now be captured.
Fox venturi ejectors have been installed in global applications to provide no maintenance, no moving parts Vapor Recovery and capture since the 1970's:
Fox natural gas venturi ejectors are often installed on gas-capture manifolds that collect vapors from multiple sources - such as actuators, glycol dehydrators, etc.
Hydrocarbon storage tanks are often supplied with expensive X-proof motor exhaust blowers. Fox air or nat-gas-driven ejectors can replace these with a no-moving parts, no maintenance solution.
Fox ejectors can be skid-mounted with specified valves, instrumentation and controls.
