Harnessing On-site Gas for Efficient Process Control with ZEVAC

Efficiently managing gas-driven process controllers is a significant challenge in today's industrial landscape, especially under stringent OOOOb/c regulations and in locations with limited electricity access. ZEVAC is stepping forward with an innovative solution to address these challenges head-on, offering a sustainable and efficient alternative to traditional methods.

ZEVAC's unique technology leverages the differential pressure (dP) of gas on-site to generate compressed air without requiring any electricity. This system not only simplifies the setup by eliminating the need for electrical work but also enhances environmental compliance and operational efficiency. The process involves using the differential pressure between two gas lines or within a single line that exhibits varying pressures to power an air compressor. This compressor then stores the compressed air in tanks, which can be utilized to operate various process controllers and other station air needs.

Traditionally known for its mobile, air-powered gas compression equipment, ZEVAC has reversed this technology. Instead of deploying electric air compressors, their equipment uses the available gas pressure to fulfill the same role, thereby providing a versatile and eco-friendly solution for sites with limited power infrastructure.

The flexibility of ZEVAC's systems is evident in their capacity to design around specific operational needs. Equipment efficiently operates at a minimum of 4 psi dP, though 100 psi is ideal for optimal performance. This adaptability ensures ZEVAC’s technology can be tailored to meet diverse industrial requirements regardless of the site conditions, making it an indispensable tool for companies aiming to boost their operational efficiency while adhering to environmental standards.
