Blower Package for CO2 Capture Technology

We have just completed a pressure package that will be part of a pilot program to capture carbon dioxide from power plant discharge.  The 1012 RGS-J Roots blower package has many special features to extend its lifespan in a very harsh environment, such as electroless nickel plating on the blower and 316 SS accessories like silencers, valves, and gauges.  After integration with the rest of the process skid, it will be installed at Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) in Norway, the world’s largest plant for testing and improving technologies for CO2 capture.
