Harsco To Cool Texas Compressors

The final inspections of a Harsco Air-X-Changers/Hammco cooler prior to shipment.

Harsco Corporation has secured a new order for gas compression coolers produced by its Harsco Industrial Air-X-Changers/Hammco business. The order, which calls for 12 coolers to be delivered by the end of 2016, will support a new gas-fired compressor station to be constructed as part of the Coastal Bend Header Project, a 66-mile (106-km) pipeline in southeast Texas, USA, that will provide up to 1.54 bcf/d (43 x 106 m3/d) of natural gas to a Freeport LNG liquefaction facility currently under construction.

The Harsco cooling units, to be engineered and manufactured at the company’s 550,000 sq.ft. (51,096 m2) production plant in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, will each stand 16 ft. (4.8 m) wide and 55 ft. (16.7 m) long, and will be equipped with 15-foot (4.5-m) diameter fans.

This is the fifth large midstream compression project for Harsco within the last 24 months, totaling approximately US$30 million in projected revenues.
