Natural gas availability and reliability problems create industrial havoc in many parts of the world. Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) is a potential solution. SNG is a blend of LPG and air that provides nearly identical combustion characteristics to natural gas. SNG and NG can be used interchangeably or blended together with NG. No burner, regulator or orifice adjustments are necessary to the consuming equipment. Fuel interchangeability remains seamless.
SNG has a higher specific gravity than natural gas. Consequently, less SNG flow through a pipe or orifice compared to natural gas given the same pressure drops. We compensate for reduced volumetric flow by increasing the calorific value of the SNG. In other words, since less SNG flows through the pipe than NG - the SNG must contain a higher heating value. Accordingly, we provide SNG with the same Wobbe Value (i.e. energy flow) as the natural gas it is replacing or imitating.
We design and manufacture both standardized and customized modular SNG systems. Capacities range from >50 metric ton/h LPG input to 50 kg/h. We offer systems for 100% propane, 100% butane as well as all LPG blends.
