Highlights

Supports Cost-Effective CNG-Based Natural Gas Delivery for Ranges up to 500 km Beyond the Pipeline. Clean Energy Compression’s Fullfill and Maxoffload technology provide quick and complete fueling at source and near-complete offloading at destination, offering you  significant cost savings per unit delivered.

Proven Scalability. Along with Clean Energy Compression’s CleanCNG™ compressors, our Pressure Reduction Systems (PRS) have proven scalability to provide standard product to custom applications. There are current systems installed with a capacity of up to 14,000 Nm3/hr.

Benefits:

  • High flow rates for decreased trailer filling time, allowing you to transport more gas with a lower operational cost. Products available for 3500 scfm and 5000 scfm.
  • Quick and easy connection and disconnection of multiple hoses for safe operation. Hoses include internal check valve to immediate stop the flow of any gas upon hose disconnection.
  • Each TrailerfillCNG is expandable from 1 to 3 hoses, depending on the flow rates and filling requirements.
  • Accurate flow measurement for monitoring and administering charges. Internal flow measurement with less than 0.5% error across the entire pressure and temperature range experience during fueling. Flow measurement available with Custody Transfer Grade Certificate (such as weights and measures).
  • Filtration ensures maximum uptime and elimination of damaging gas stream contaminants. Inlet filtrations system protects the flow meters, valves, and all internal components from any debris that may be in the system or gas stream.
  • Advanced cooling delivers additional efficiency. Additional gas cooling capabilities with internal back pressure regulators increase the fill efficiency of the trailers. Included with Smart Active Cooling Control Algorithm (SACCA) to eliminate over cooling the gas at low pressures which can damage equipment and become a safety issue, and to bypass the regulators with free flow gas at end of fill to ensure minimal pressure drop in the TrailerfillCNG and maximize filling.
  • Time-saving operator filling interface. HMI and PLC included on the TrailerfillCNG for local control of the device by the fueling operator. This eliminates wasted time and additional operating costs of going to the control room to enter data and start and stop the fill.
  • Empowered virtual pipeline performance and insight. PLC with additional internal sensors allows diagnostics, data logging and reporting of all fueling data to the main control room. This data can be used for virtual pipeline statistics and operational metrics.
  • Smart control system, auto-shut-downs and safety. Smart control system with sensors ensures accurate flow measurements and control conditions, monitoring the fueling process, detecting abnormal conditions and automatically shutting the fueling process down if the situation requires it. This ensures safe operation of the device and a safe fueling environment for the fleet operators.
  • Automatic configuration. Multiple virtual pipeline delivery routes and trailer configurations can be served automatically from one TrailerfillCNG mother station. Intelligent control systems can optimize smart scheduling and queuing of TrailerfillCNG connected to trailers. An entire fleet can be connected and with the default schedule, or a customized one, the centers can operate fully autonomously and unstaffed.
  • Active flow control during fuel process start-up eliminates damage to components and saturation of flow reading devices from large inrush of gas.

Options:

  • Standard 3500 scfm, high flow 5000 scfm models
  • Inlet Filtration System (always recommended but may be removed if site has other means of filtration to ensure clean gas stream).
  • HMI (always recommended but may not be required if site has other means for operators to enter information into the system). Units come standard with start, stop, and ESD button along with three status lights.
  • Active Cooling (back pressure regulators) along with the Smart Active Cooling Algorithm (SACA) ball valves can be removed if additional cooling and maximum fueling efficiency is not required.
  • Flow meters can be removed if additional means of measuring flow during fueling event is provided on site.
  • Standard operator vent ball valves if the spring-loaded one is not deemed necessary (always recommended for operator safety).
  • Standard ambient and gas temperature model versus the low temperature model

The Dual Inlet Free Flow Expansion Module (DIFFEM) Features

  • Dual inlets for low pressure site connection and high pressure compressor gas connections.
  • Smart Active control to free flow site gas into the TrailerfillCNG and into the trailer upon the start of the fueling process. This allows the site gas pressure to push gas into the trailer without any additional operation costs. No compressors and no cooling (chillers, etc.) required during the free-flow stage.
  • When the free flow has fueled the trailer as much as possible the active fueling control system will automatically switch over to high pressure compressor discharge gas, and start up any compressors required to complete the gas loading process.
  • The entire process and switch over is fully automatically controlled. No manual operator interaction or control required.
  • The dual inlet free-flow expansion model is compatible with all models of the TrailerfillCNG.
  • Module sensors tie into the TrailerfillCNG PLC and control system, through one simple electrical cable connection.
  • DIFFEM module operates invisibly and does not require any operator control and does not alter the fueling procedure for the TrailerfillCNG.
  • This module can significantly decrease operation costs to fill the trailers as the site piping pressure energy harnesses as a “free” energy source to push gas into the trailers.
  • Standard and low temperature models available.

Trailerfill-CNG-time-Industrial-Gas-Loading-Center

 

A global leader in manufacturing CNG and LNG fueling systems, Clean Energy Compression meets or exceeds standards for ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System as well as extensive safety and environmental protocols. Our partners applaud our dedication to safety.

Safety

  • Spring-loaded manual ball valve for venting of the hoses after a complete fueling process. The spring-loaded valve ensures that the vent valve is never left in the open position which is a safety concern when the next fueling process is started. Additional flow control device added to the vent line limits the vent flow to reduce noise and vibration during high pressure venting.
  • Enclosure and stand designed for industrial outdoor environments. Designed to withstand low temperatures and high wind environments. Structurally“stiff” stand eliminates the concern of vibrations or deflections that may affect the connection between the TrailerfillCNG and the site piping.
  • Start, Stop and ESD buttons allows simple operator control of the TrailerfillCNG without use of touch screens.
  • Three Indicator lights and alarms provide clear and concise status of the TrailerfillCNG.
