Solutions built for continual operations without failure: ensuring gas containment, aeration and protection from fumes and toxic gas dangers.
Liquid gas transport and storage often relates to vapor handling. Vapors are recovered and tanks are typically refrigerated by a refrigeration plant to limit vaporization.
Howden ventilation and aeration fans are embedded in carrier ships, and integrated into buildings. They also support the processes within import and export terminals. Our products have proven efficiency and the ability to offer protection from fumes and toxic gases within evacuation or pressurized rooms. In gas terminals, Howden’s reciprocating compressors are selected for their performance, gas containment capability, reliability and extended operation time with the Free Floating Piston system.

The BOG is compressed and depending on the plant requirements can be sent for re-liquefaction and returned to storage, sent for fuel gas, flared or regasified for send-out into the pipeline. Howden has experience in oil-injected solutions for the application. Oil free solutions can be offered. Howden deliver also HP recip and centrifugal compressor solutions.
NGL/LPG export. Export terminals will have refrigeration and boil off systems to liquefy feedstocks and recover vapours. Direct refrigeration systems (common for propane and propylene) will use the product as refrigerant and compress flashed vapours (including potential boil off). Howden has experience in oil-injected solutions for the application. Oil free solutions can be offered.
Howden delivers oil free and oil injection screw compressor solutions.
Our lifelong aftercare service will supply original replacement parts, support you with maintenance and installation, and even train your own engineers in maintenance techniques. We keep detailed plant records almost indefinitely, and regularly supply spare parts for machinery over 50 years old.
