Seal Gas Recovery System is designed to work with tandem seal
to recover seal leakage and divert the gas stream for more productive purposes
CHICAGO (February 2, 2023) ― John Crane, a global leader in rotating equipment solutions, supplying engineered technologies and services to process industries, announced the launch of the Seal Gas Recovery (SGR) System—a technical solution for dry gas seal vent recovery needs, achieving zero-emissions operations while reducing capital requirements.
John Crane’s SGR System is an important aspect of emissions reduction efforts and is designed to work with tandem seal installations where leakage is routed to the flare line and burned as waste. The SRG System recovers the seal leakage and diverts the gas stream back into the process to be used in other applications, minimizing the release of these emissions.
“Meeting energy needs while keeping sustainability and cost top of mind is crucial for our customers,” said Stefano Rossi, Portfolio Director, Gas Compression. “John Crane’s new SGR System helps solve both challenges by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and cutting valuable product losses through the recovery and repurposing of high-cost process gas, helping to achieve annual cost savings by reuse through emission abatement and trading. The SGR System is capable of capturing 100% of primary vent gas during normal operation.”
Recommended applications for the SGR System include:
- Natural gas pipeline
- Low-pressure pipeline compressors
- Propylene and ethylene compressor
- Suitable for a wide variety of process gases
