VRU™ Vapour Recovery Unit

Remove vapors. Keep tank top pressure to a minimum. Eliminate venting. Recover condensates.

IJACK™ VRU automated vapor recovery unit is designed to remove vapors from inside tanks keeping the internal tank top pressure to a minimum, sending recovered vapors and condensates to a facility. Simply tell EGAS-VRU the desired tank top pressure and it adjusts automatically to meet the goal.

A Simple Solution and Proven Business Case

  1. Eliminates / reduces emissions, venting and flaring
  2. Lowers tank top pressures as low as 0 psi / 0 oz/sq-in
  3. Handles vapors and associated fluids together without the need for knockouts or scrubbers, using one flowline to a facility
  4. Optionally discharge emulsions into a knockout, recovering and sending condensates to a tank and vapors to a gas sales line or compressor
  5. Minimal downtime, fewer maintenance intervals and completely field serviceable by local service crews
  6. Reciprocating pump with no bearings or gaskets which are damaged by butane, ethane, methane and propane requiring frequent rebuilds
  7. Increases bottom line by recovering condensates and eliminating carbon tax on emissions
  8. Eligible for government emission reduction grants

Patented Technology

IJACK's numerous Canadian and US patents include a position control system to maximize pump efficiency, and a buffer chamber (distance piece) that eliminates cross-contamination of the production and hydraulic fluids. The buffer chamber is also a safety feature which prevents gas from reaching the general rated power unit. You will only find these features on IJACK's products!
