Vapor Recovery Tower
The Vapor Recovery Tower is a tall pressure vessel or two phase separator installed
between low pressure separator or heater treater and storage tanks. The liquid head
pressure is used to move liquids to stock tanks.
- Potential to reduce stock tank emissions below EPA OOOO threshold
- Majority of flash gas captured at VRT and reduces stock tank flash gas
- Eliminates potential oxygen in system from stock tanks
- No need to worry about stock tank hatch leaks
What is the ideal application for VRT’s?
50+ MSCFD of vent gas. Production facilities that have high enough production rates and flash gas volumes to economically justify installing a Vapor Recovery Unit. It is easier to recover product off of a VRT than it is from atmospheric stock tanks.
