Innovative Design

If Vapor Recovery is not properly addressed, there can be serious environmental, legal and financial consequences for oil-tank operators.

There has always been an economic rationale for oil and gas producers to recover or prevent the emission of gas vapors into the atmosphere: not capturing as many oil and gas vapors as possible is akin to watching money (and potential profits) disappear into thin air.

The EPA has stated that the use of Vapor Recovery technologies such as Vapor Recovery Units (VRU) or vapor recovery systems are a cost-effective and proven method to capture and sell oil and gas vapors that currently escape into the air, and even state that the vapor recovery system more than pays for itself over time.

When it comes to design and assembly of a Vapor Recovery Unit (VRU) there are many equipment component options available to an operator. A critical component of a vapor recovery unit is the compressor. Recognizing the untapped potential for improved vapor recovery in the field, Blackmer has designed a complete family of Oil-Free Reciprocating Gas Compressors that offer a wide range of operational features for enhanced vapor recovery and an essential part of any vapor recovery system.


Reciprocating Gas Compressors

Blackmer oil-free gas compressors deliver high efficiency in handling propane, natural gas, and many other industrial gases. They are ideal for tank and rail car unloading and vapor recovery applications in a vapor recovery system.

  • LB – Used for liquid transfer and vapor recovery on liquefied gas transfer applications.
  • HD – Designed for the transfer and vapor recovery of a wide range of industrial gas products
  • NG –  Specially designed for wellhead applications for oil and gas production and storage operations
