Condensate Stabilizer


Liquid product vapour pressure and composition control.


Northeast, British Columbia


  • Control bottom product vapour pressure and key component content to allow tank storage.
  • Maximize liquid product recovery.
  • Conserve operation uptime with major backup components.
  • Vapour recovery and overhead gas compression.

Design Challenges:

  • Effectively handle slugs, water, and other contaminants from upstream process equipment.
  • Provide compression for both site storage tank vapours and overhead residue gas to recycle into main plant gas stream.
  • Sparing capacity for major components subject to fouling.

Compass Solution:

  • Feed drum with slug capacity and mechanical separation features to remove sediment and water.
  • Split feed and tray count to optimize liquid products with capital cost.
  • Compact and flexible compressors to gather vapours from tank storage and combine them with residue gas from tower. Each service individually controlled.
  • Rotary vane compressor to effectively deal with gas at dew point.
