    Ring Damped Valve Saves Thousands in Energy Costs for Gas Gathering Facility

    SHARE

    Unique features in the Ring Damped Valve design allowed a gas gathering facility in North Dakota to run their Dresser Rand RDS-4 reciprocating compressor at higher lifts than traditional plate valves, resulting in maximum flow area. Increased flow area significantly reduces the horsepower required to move gas, thereby increasing energy efficiency.

    This case study shows how this gas facility’s energy consumption decreased by $2,200 per year for each Ring Damped Valve installed; providing a remarkable ROI and environmental benefits from reduced energy usage.
