gashandling-recovery.gif Helium Gas Recovery Systems
The Gas Recovery Systems offered consists of ASME coded pressure tanks, a set of compressor(s), gas analyzer, microprocessor controls and all necessary valving, gas regulation and piping. The gas recovery operation includes these major steps: • The tracer gas in the product is vented into the vacuum surge tank (T1). • During each stage of compression the tracer gas is passed through a set of high efficiency water cooled heat exchangers to remove the heat generated during compression. • The final compressor outputs to tank (T3) completing the recycling operation.

smartchargeIII127038.jpg Charging Stations Smart Charge III™

A fully automatic, custom configurable evacuation and tracer gas backfill system with built-in gross leak test.  The system is ideally suited for pre-charging of product with tracer gas, such as Helium, Hydrogen or others prior to the leak test process.  It can also be used any gas charging application that requires evacuation and subsequent pressurization of a test product.

gasbooster.jpg Gas Boosters
Gas booster systems produce high-pressure process gas supplies from lower pressure sources, typically boosting a shop air source.  Base units provide up to 600 psig pressure output.  Options include higher pressure outputs and process gas drying capabilities.  They can be configured for single gas or dual gas boosting.

The Gas Mixer provides a mixture of two gases by alternately filling a tank until each gas has contributed proportionally to the tank’s final pressure.  The volume ratio of each gas is determined by the selected mix percentage.
