AEREON Launches New Product to Improve Safety and Emissions During Truck Loading and Removal of Oxygen From Tank Batteries

May 1, 2015

(AUSTIN, TEXAS) – May 1, 2015 – AEREON, a global supplier of environmentally-compliant gas and vapor combustion, handling and recovery equipment, today announced the introduction of The Air Defender, which improves safety and reduces emissions during truck loading operations, while minimizing oxygen entering tank head space in a crude and condensate loading facility.

The Air Defender is a pre-engineered product that can be customized per customers’ specifications. The product technology is designed to reduce oxygen ingestion into storage tanks during truck loading operations when vapor-balancing occurs, while also reducing overall emissions in nonattainment areas where air quality regulations require vapor recovery. With low power consumption and a small footprint, The Air Defender is shipped on a skid base and easily installed as three major components, offering reliability in rugged environments.

The Air Defender consists of a direct-driven vacuum pump, carbon beds, and a precision operating system that is operation-friendly and easy to commission. The system also operates continuously with little need for personnel interaction beyond quarterly maintenance inspections. The standard Air Defender product design allows for a quick and easy installation with delivery of systems within four weeks of order.
