  • Industrial Maintenance for Compressor Stations

    Transporting natural gas via pipelines is very safe and cost-efficient. However, in order for the transportation process to work properly it is imperative that the natural gas be kept at the correct pressure. To accomplish this compressor stations are needed at regular intervals. Let’s take a look at some key components of compressor stations as well as industrial maintenance needs. The ...

  • First commissioned LFG power generation unit in Iran

    The first landfill gas (LFG) power generation station in Iran was officially commissioned in July 2009. This plant is located in old landfill site of Mashhad, the second largest city in Iran. This landfill has been receiving municipal solid wastes (MSW) since 1975 but the first activity for biogas extraction in this site was started in 2000. The LFG extraction system in this site is based on ...


  • HS-200 Used in natural gas production

    A unique and proven wastewater treatment system is being used at several natural gas compressor stations. Oil leakage and spills when servicing compressors together with maintenance wash-down water, are being satisfactorily treated with oil removal systems. The systems usually consist of a wastewater holding tank with an oil drain off valve, a coalescing oil/water separator ...
