High Pressure Air Compressor

High pressure compressor

ScanTech Offshore’s high pressure compressors are fully containerised and have a rated compressed air flow of 1070 acfm, with an operating pressure range between 150 and 350 psig. The container is certified to DNV 2.7-1, the globally accepted standard for mobile offshore containers.

Discharged air from the compressor is cooled down to 10 degrees centigrade above ambient air temperature and then filtered to remove any oil carryover to less than 0.01 mg/m³, making it technically oil free.

For safety reasons, the control station is easily accessible from the perimeter of the oilfield skid as are the drains from the scrubber bottles. The booster has a 30-gallon diesel day tank for run-up checks and servicing and is remotely fuelled from a separate bulk tank for operation. 

Applications of high pressure boosters: 

  • Air drilling  
  • Under balanced drilling and nitrogen boosting  
  • Pipeline dewatering, pigging and testing
