Atlas Copco Rental.


Atlas Copco Rental says it provided a solution to a contractor attempting to dry a pipeline for a pump station. The job site was a natural gas pump station with most of the stations covering a few miles of pipe. The situation arose when a large amount of water entered the pipes throughout the station. Usually when dewatering a pipeline, pigs can push everything out of the pipe. However, pigs were not an option here due to the configuration and small diameter of the pipes and the fact that many terminate into a large indoor receiver tank. This job would need hot, dry air to remove the water. Atlas Copco says it provided its oil-free air compressor and a customized heat exchanger package for the job which worked almost instantaneously, www.
