Disruptive Technology for
Vapor Destruction in the Oil & Gas Industry
Patented 3-Phase Oxidation® by BRB/Sherline
A Profound Game Changer
Quantum Leap Improvement
BRB/Sherline’s patented 3-Phase Oxidation® technology is a complete game changer for degassing services. It’s also a tremendous solution for many flare unit replacement applications in the oil industry. With massive vapor destruction capability on a small 8×12 footprint and true plug ‘n play functionality it’s the ultimate combination of high volume throughput on a system that is highly maneuverable for easy deployment and simplicity of operation in the field.
Overwhelming Cost Advantage
3 Reasons Why 3-Phase Oxidation® is Less Expensive to Operate
Degassing Turnaround Time
Reduced up to 80%
Set-up (and tear down) time takes only minutes, not hours like thermal oxidizers. With a flow rate at 5,000 cfm and an HC destruction rate at 120,000 ppm (+), 3-Phase Oxidation® gets the job done multiple times more quickly and efficiently. Tanks are put back into service faster, and tank cleaning, repair and maintenance crews go home early. Everyone saves money!
3-Phase Oxidation® uses the VOC’s as its direct fuel source, unlike thermal oxidizers, which burn propane to burn the VOC’s. Therefore the huge expense of supplemental propane is eliminated from the job cost, along with the hassle and expense of hauling in a propane tank.
3 Reasons Why 3-Phase Oxidation® Has Far Less Safety Risk
90% Lower Carbon Footprint vs. Thermal Oxidizers
CFM Flow Rate
Hydrocarbon (HC) ppm Destruction Rate
Supplemental Propane Required
System Operators Required
“CFM” Alone is Not the
Pure Measure for Vapor Destruction
HC Destruction Rate is What Really Counts
CFM (“flow rate”) is only part of the equation as a measure of vapor destruction performance. With thermal oxidizers (most common method for high-volume degassing) the majority of air flow is derived from ambient “dilution” air, rather than actually processing vapors from the tank. The bottom line is that our proprietary 3-Phase Oxidation® system distinctly maximizes the air flow to vapor destruction ratio by measures that are absolutely unequaled. Put another way; we destroy up to 8x more ppm of hydrocarbons per cubic foot of flow vs. thermal oxidizers. We call this the Hydrocarbon (HC) Destruction Rate. Higher HC Destruction Rate translates into a radically shorter degassing run-time because vapors are consumed multiple times more efficiently and quickly.
*This chart illustrates how our higher HC Destruction Rate performs compared to thermal oxidizers based on a hypothetical degassing job for 120-foot diameter tank with floating roof on 6-foot legs (70,000 cubic foot vapor space), and 5,000 cfm flow rate for both systems. (For illustration purposes only. Each degassing job has unique variables such as sludge, etc. that can alter turnaround times.)
