Atlas Copco launches Hurricane B18-62/2250 Rig-safe booster (Oct 2011)

22 November, 2011

Atlas Copco has introduced the Hurricane B18-62/2250 Rig-safe compressor booster for the oil and gas industry. This version of the booster provides 2185 cfm at 2250 psi in two-stage mode, with a 350 psi suction pressure. The Rig-safe Hurricane B18-62/2250 is built into a specially adapted DNV 2.7-1 certified 20 ft. ISO container equipped for offshore requirements.

As a Rig-safe booster, the B18-62/2250 features an inlet shutdown valve and spark arrestor, along with an optional Air Starter. It has flame-resistant anti-static fan belts, a battery-box and battery isolator switch, and visible and audible alarms. It is also equipped with two emergency stops situated on the exterior of the container, and a connection for an external shut-off signal, known as a platform shut-down (PSD) or Yellow Alert. Other safety features include over-speed protection, an external fuel cut-off valve, and stainless steel braided fuel lines.
The container is designed for rough conditions and extreme temperatures. It is provided with certified slings and shackles, as well as forklift slots, and is stackable. Additionally, it is weatherproof, sound-proof and spillage free.
The Hurricane B18-62/2250 features 1-stage and 2-stage operation for increased application flexibility. The A-rated CAT engine assures the user of a dependable source of power. Its automatic load/unload system, which causes the engine to slow down to idle speed under certain conditions, is said to improve fuel efficiency. Offshore applications for this newly-introduced booster include pipeline services such as purging, de-watering, drying and pressure testing. Related applications are its use in oil and gas exploration drilling, and well services such as testing, logging, cleaning and fracturing.
In many areas with potentially explosive atmospheres, the Rig-safe package will provide an adequate level of protection. However, for locations classified as hazardous under various governing bodies, a Zone 2 unit may be required. The Atlas Copco Hurricane Rig-safe B18-62/2250 booster is supported by a worldwide parts and service network.
