Gas Conditioning – PowerMaking life clean again...

Gas Conditioning Packages for Power Generation

V CORE gas conditioning packages are perfect for the power industry. Each system is designed on a sturdy shippable frame with demanding industrial environments in mind. They are designed for 24/7 continual use and are the perfect match for any biogas power project.

The standard process removes the following contaminates from the gas stream:

  • Hydrogen Sulfide
  • Siloxanes
  • Heavy Hydrocarbons (Such as VOCs)
  • Water, Particulates, and Aerosols
  • Gas Moistures

V CORE offers three production models

  • CORE LP (for low gas pressure applications)
  • CORE MP (for medium gas pressure applications)
  • CORE HP (for high gas pressure applications)

Gas Conditioning – Methane...and again, and again...

Gas Conditioning Packages for Methane Generation

V CORE gas conditioning packages can generate methane gas from biogas at natural gas pipeline quality. The CORE MG series is designed as a modular system that upgrades the gas and compresses it to meet pipeline requirements. These systems can be installed prior to turbines, generators, and boilers or for direct injection into natural gas pipelines.  Each skid is tailored to meet the individual needs of each client.  Let us help you with your project.

The CORE MG standard configuration consists of the following:

  • Screw Compressor Pkg. (for initial compression to 200 psig)
  • PSA System (CO2 and Contaminate Removal System)
  • Piston Compressor Pkg. (for pipeline compression to 1,000 psig)
  • Packaged Electrical and Controls Cabinet (prewired)

Optional components for the CORE MG series:

  • Membrane (instead of PSA system)
  • Gas Engine Drive for Compressor (instead of electric motor)

Micro-LNG Systems

MicroLNG Systems for well-head, bio, and natural gas applications

V CORE MicroLNG packages are designed to fill the void of typical LNG systems, which are traditionally designed for outputs above 100,000 gallons per day. There are a number of different markets that have recently emerged that can benefit from small scale LNG production systems.  One of the largest emerging markets for these systems is from stranded well-head gas that exists as part of a traditional oil drilling operation.  These oil wells are limited in production by the amount of well-head gas that can be flared due to EPA regulations.  One of the goals of V CORE MicroLNG systems is to eliminate the need to flare well-head gas (which incurs costly penalties or forces limited production) and to instead liquify it for shipping and offsite processing.  This once neglected commodity can become an additional profitable resource.

V CORE hopes that by investing in a market solution, more individuals will be able to utilize the benefits of LNG. V CORE MicroLNG systems target customers looking for LNG outputs of around 5000 to 10,000 gallons per day.

LNG Markets are emerging worldwide, and are created from natural gas and oil exploration, small vehicle fleet needs, remote gas and biogas locations, and a lack of natural gas infrastructure, among others. The map below shows the current value of LNG in various locations around the world in $ per million BTU’s.

Product Information

Processing Capacity: Biogas 0.75 MMSCFD (55% CH4) Natural Gas 0.4 MMSCFD
Product Output: 5,000 Gal/Day

The biogas pre-module consists of a multi-vessel PSA system with a recovery efficiency of over 90% and the associated biogas compressor and vacuum pumps.

The purification core utilizes a PSA for further CO2 removal and a TSA for dehydration. The CO2 free and dry gas is liquefied in a mixed refrigerant process.

LNG Storage: 39,000 Gal LNG Storage Tank
Power Generation: 200kW Self Generation Module

Committed to the Market

V CORE is committed to meeting these new market challenges and has assembled a team of experienced partners capable of introducing a sustainable product into this new market.

V CORE has established a partnership with one of the most experienced technology providers in the gas processing industry in Asia, with over 20 facilities in operation since 2005 that generate LNG from pipeline natural gas, well head gas and coke oven gas.  These facilities range from 14,000 gal/day to 92,000 gal/day processing capacity.

The high energy demand, limited infrastructure and favorable cost of LNG his driven the development of LNG technology in Asia in recent decades. V CORE has been able to leverage these factors to introduce a product into the North American market.

  • Packaged in USA
  • Cold Box Sourced in Asia
  • Domestically Sourced Components
  • PSA Purification Technology
  • Mixed Refrigerant LNG process
  • Power Self Generation module (Remote Locations Option)
