Product Portfolio
  • Gases

      • BIOGAS

          • BIOGAS CONDITIONING

          • Everyone talks about synergies. We capitalize on them!

            Years of experience in plant and equipment engineering, development leader in natural gas service stations, and manufacturer of fuel vapor recovery systems – all this, taken together, has put us in a position to become, in the shortest possible time, a highly competent partner in the field of biogas conditioning plants. Based on our experience in the fields mentioned above, we offer excellent craftsmanship, reliable adherence to standards, and efficient planning. This is demonstrated in the above-average quality of our systems, which are paired with services we provide to ensure the ideal cost-benefit ratio for your biogas conditioning system. We attach particular importance to reducing ongoing operating costs. With electrical consumption at less than 0.2 kWh/Nm³, referenced to the raw gas, we set standards here.
          • BIOGAS AND METHANE FEED PLANTS

          • Power to the plug – say those who champion electromobility!

            Sustainable, environment-friendly energy sources – those are the modules for the future of humanity – in the personal, industrial and mobility sectors. Since the surrounding conditions always vary, our ability to turn customer wishes into reality is of particular interest. Our in-depth experience in the natural gas sector makes it easy for us to satisfy both the stringent requirements of legal and technical regulations (DVGW G260, GasNZV) as well as the customer’s instrumentation, control, regulation and safety expectations. Especially worth mentioning is the ability to obtain from a single source both the biogas conditioning system and the biomethane feed system. That eliminates annoying interface matching problems for our customers.
          • DRYING BIOGAS AND BIOMETHANE

          • Water doesn’t burn.

            And it is for this reason that biomethane may not contain more than a specific residual moisture. It is not rare that neither the conditioning technology nor the infeed and conditioning plant is engineered to dry the gas. We employ operational safe and profitable systems for drying purpose. These are systems that feature automatic regeneration. The pressure swing adsorption (PSA) systems used in our conditioning plants can also provide any desired degree of dryness with minimum energy consumption. The desiccant (a molecular sieve) used here is regenerated fully automatically, eliminating the need to replace it. The output is simply water, which can be disposed of in the sanitary sewer system.

             
        • NATURAL GAS FUELING STATIONS

          • PRESSURE BOOSTER SYSTEMS FOR GASES

          • There aren’t many who can stand up to pressure. We can.

            Whenever high-pressure gases are needed continuously and where the pressure in the local grid is not adequate – or where special-purposes gases are to be drawn from gas cylinder manifolds – compressor units will have to be provided for compression and conveyance. When designing the equipment required for this purpose, we can make use of our broad-based experience in technology for natural gas and hydrogen fueling. Here, too, we can deliver all the components from a single source.

            Simple and compact systems are used to supply burners, heating and test beds (in the automotive industry, for instance). In combination with buffer storage similar to the configuration used in natural gas filling stations, a variety of pressure levels and volumetric flow rates can be realized.
              • Our supply and performance spectrum:
                • Compressor stations to boost the pressures of gases such as natural gas
                • Compact systems in sheet steel containers, attaining final pressures of up to 350 bar
                • Compressor output in compact systems of from 15 to 160 mS³/h
                • Buffer storage in a multiple manifold design to achieve differing pressure levels, for instance
                • Gas pressure regulation systems as well as units for fine pressure regulation, in a range of ±50 mbar
              • The stations can also be combined, in addition, with natural gas dispenser pumps that can be parameterized for fueling either with natural gas or with special gases or for extracting gases from a tank. Here a variety of pressures and fill volumes can be preselected and maintained precisely. We offer tailor-made solutions for compressing, storing and regulating gases in stand-alone stations and for location in existing buildings.
            • GAS MIXING PLANTS

            • Gases are not always suitable by their very nature ... but we make them fit.

              The large selection of gases in industry is often not sufficient to find the optimal composition for production or a process. In particular, accompanying substances can cause problems and must be removed or minimized.

              We offer the treatment of gases in a variety of areas. This may include drying and gas mixing. This can mean simple but also complex tasks and requires extensive knowledge in this area.
                  • GAS MIXING PLANTS

                  • We have had this experience for decades. We can offer you the following services:
                    • Gas mixing plants for the molecularly accurate adjustment of gas qualities, e.g. for the supply of test benches, gas burners, heating systems/furnace plants or firing tables
                    • Gas treatment/ removal of impurities e.g. via gas scrubbing, membrane technology, cooling and precipitation
                    • Drying of gases in all pressure ranges
                    • Dosing devices gas/gas or gas/liquid
                    • Gas composition measurement, e.g. with PGC or continuous analysis, including sample gas preparation
                    • Generation of nitrogen or oxygen to adjust calorific values or Wobbe index or to carburize fuel gases
                    • Addition of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)
                    • further solutions for your special task
                       
                    In combination with our versatile pressure boosting systems, tailor-made solutions can be flexibly developed in the field of gas-technical plant engineering and in the accustomed quality of our products. It goes without saying that our systems comply with the current state of the art such as technical regulations, BetrSichV, the pressure equipment directive PED 97/23/EG, UVV as well as the relevant DIN/ EN/ ISO standards and have all the necessary tests and approvals.
              • Solid-/ Liquid Substances

                  • TANK FARMS

                  • Safety isn’t a matter of witchcraft. Instead, it’s the result of decades of experience, ongoing employee training, technically correct planning procedures right through to assembly and turnkey transfer of tank systems of any size for the storage and distribution of flammable and non-flammable gases and substances that could endanger groundwater. To ensure that this standard is maintained at all times, our experienced service team is available for your support.
                      • The activities of Schwelm Anlagentechnik GmbH include planning, delivery and assembly, and all this requires a high degree of operational safety. This is true for a number of industries, including chemicals, energy, automotive, petroleum, paints and enamels, and others.

                        Decades of experience and continuous employee training guarantee technically correct planning procedures, right through to assembly and turnkey transfer. This is true both for small orders from private customers and large contracts placed by renowned corporations. Thus we can create storage facilities ranging from a few cubic meters, serving as buffer storage for subsequent processing steps, but also large tank farms to supply large chemical plants. We do all of this while continuously taking current legislation into account, which means that our systems are equipped with all the required safety and surveillance equipment.

                        Right from the initial planning phases, you can draw upon our expertise to ensure a safe and profitable system design. The realization of the concept thus worked out includes detailed planning, including the documentation associated with applications for permits. Experienced engineers are on hand to execute this detailed planning. They render their planning services for all process-related and electrical aspects at the most modern CAD workstations.
                      • In addition to a selection of materials for the storage vessels suitable to hold a diversity of chemicals, the associated equipment – such as pumps, valves and piping systems – will have to be matched to the same needs. This is also true for the storage conditions. In some cases heated, insulated vessels are required; for other substances inside coatings may be required in order to prevent corrosion.

                        We build the switching systems, including the power output sections and controls, for all the safety equipment – from the overfill prevention device to the illumination. All the electrical wiring is also a part of the scope of our delivery and services. Additional equipment such as a cathodic corrosion prevention system guarantee decades of satisfactory use. Our standards of service are listed below:
                        • Certification as a specialist company in the sense of § 62 AwS; certification as per DIN ISO 9001 ff.
                        • Our own assemblers with SCC (Safety Certified
                        • Contractor) training, with the appropriate certificates and license for all types of welding work guarantee technically correct completion
                        • Quick and reliable service carried out by trained repair and maintenance personnel
                    • TRANSLOADING TERMINALS

                    • A full tank on its own is no help to you. The product has to get to the customers.
                        • Our transloading technology represents the link between the tank and the transport medium, regardless of what that might be: railway tank car, tank truck, containers or even inland and ocean-going tankers. None of this poses any problems for us. We are just as resourceful in transloading acids, caustic solutions, petroleum products, liquefied gas, solvents and other flowable substances – regardless of whether top or bottom loading is your preference. Since special regulations have to be observed when loading or unloading liquid and gaseous substances at vehicles equipped with tanks, these should be taken account of even in the initial planning phases. Later they could endanger both permit issuance, realization and approval.
                        • We would be happy to support you. With our tank terminals we offer you here, again, everything from a single source and naturally at excellent value for money:

                          • Piggable versions for cleaning once transfer has been made
                          • Equipment with safety couplers or dry couplers
                        • We supply not only the filling arms, but also the infrastructure required for terminal work, including:
                          • Steel platforms to accept the terminal equipment
                          • Folding stairs for mounting the tank trucks

                        • LIQUEFIED GAS SYSTEMS

                        • One of the basic technologies employed by Schwelm Eisenwerke is alive and well in our operations today.

                          We offer you everything from a single source: From planning to erecting tank systems for the distribution of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for private, commercial and public operation and for filling LPG-powered vehicles. For the professional world we represent a well-known and trusted firm.
                          • Preliminary work such as drawing up plans, flow schematics, and cost estimates
                          • Planning work, determining the space and capital requirements, preparing schedules
                          • Preparing applications to be submitted to public authorities and coordination with the surveillance office (e.g. TÜV)
                          • Engineering for vessels and equipment in accordance with German and foreign regulations
                          • Detailed planning and execution of the overall project
                              • LIQUEFIED GAS SYSTEMS

                              • The appropriate solution is worked out for every material to be stored, for every storage purpose and for every storage facility size. Pressure vessels with capacities of up to 450 m² are suitable for both above-ground and underground storage. Every storage capacity needed in practice can be achieved with the perfect combination of container size and number.

                                To meet the specific task at hand, plants may be equipped with stations for withdrawal from railway tank cars or from tank trucks. The vessels are emptied either with the intrinsic pressure of the gas or using compression stations. Special transfer stations serve to forward the LPG for transportation with tank trucks, barges or ships, and in gas cylinders. The product can be supplied for utilization by the individual units by increasing the pressure in the gas phase by way of vaporization and regulation stations. Here, for instance, heating systems are supplied in the same way as industrial furnaces and other heat-intensive production systems.

                                Inherent to each individual project are decades of experience in the appropriate industry and that experience is applied in systematic fashion. Especially where propane and butane, the environment-friendly energy sources, are to be used for heating or to generate process heat, LPG equipment built by Schwelm Anlagentechnik GmbH has proven its value.
