L.A. Turbine delivers turboexpander-compressor

L.A. Turbine (LAT) has announced that its L3000 turboexpander-compressor in a UOP Russell cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Eddy County, New Mexico, US, has exceeded its designed 200 million standard ft3/d flowrate by 10%.

The skid-mounted LAT 575EC turboexpander includes a seal gas system and local programmable logic controller (PLC) unit. The turboexpander-compressor is designed for operational flexibility with a wide operating range, no speed limitations, and end-users have the ability to reduce or slightly increase the capacity to suit varying operating conditions. The design of the expander wheel and guide vanes also contribute to the unit’s ability to exceed its flowrate capacity. As gas throughput changes, this operational and performance flexibility improves the overall reliability, efficiency, and safety of the equipment and plant.

UOP Russell modular gas processing plants include skid-mounted, pre-engineered modular equipment that is factory-built to precise specifications. Several UOP Russell modular gas processing plants feature LAT turboexpanders for gas processing and NGL recovery.
