GARO compressors
Compressor and vacuum systems based on GARO liquid-ring compressors designed for recovery of associated petroleum gas and gas flare at oil refineries

Currently, about 35bn m3 of associate petroleum gas (APG) is produced in Russia, from which only 11 to 12bn m3 is refined, while the rest of the volume of low pressure gas is burned using field flares. In such a case, thousands of tons of emissions are produced. Besides, value products are destroyed, as far as APG contains high content of ethane, propane, butane, and other saturated hydrocarbons.
