Chart Industries, Inc. has announced the release of its IPSMR®+ process technology.
Chart’s IPSMR®+ technology builds on its single mixed refrigerant design and adds a pre-cooling step. The IPSMR®+ process provides as much as 8% increased efficiency over IPSMR®. Chart’s less complicated method for pre-cooling IPSMR® requires approximately 25% less plot space than conventional pre-cooled liquefaction technologies, independent of which rotating equipment is utilised. In addition to broadening the company’s mid scale offering, with the additional efficiency, capacity and cost benefits, IPSMR®+ is well suited to baseload LNG plants using multiple identical liquefaction trains.
“At our customers’ requests to continue developing innovative technology solutions using industry standard and proven equipment, Chart is pleased to be offering IPSMR®+ which is an enhancement of our successful IPSMR® process technology. IPSMR®+ has been evaluated by two international oil companies who have compared our own process and other technologies and determined it continues to be the most efficient,” said Jill Evanko, Chart Industries’ Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud of our equipment and processes which serve a broad set of applications and can be customised to what works best for the operator and our partners in each project.”
