Underutilized compression assets are an inefficient application of resources. They can be troublesome to operate, and costly to maintain.
Non-optimized facility compression can lower the efficiency and overall production of an entire process.
Modifying existing compressor packages can be a cost-effective way to addess any number of problems, but retrofits are considered high-risk for cost and schedule overages. With NEXT and OptiFit Plus+ this is no longer the case.
Defining the Scope of a Retrofit
Process modifications to compressor packages can be incredibly complex. Pressure ratings, pressure relief valves, vessel and pipe sizes, liquid handling, coolers, and vibration are just some of the areas the can be impacted by a retrofit. Performing any sort of package reconfiguration requires a high level of expertise and a disciplined process to ensure nothing is overlooked.
When firm quoting a retrofit, NEXT performs a 150 point Sales Audit. This detailed inspection of the package identifies areas of non-conformance with design standards, and takes the guesswork out of the scope.
Advanced Reconfiguration: OptiFit Plus+
The OptiFit Plus+ proprietary design process begins with the creation of accurate engineered drawings of your existing unit, which are carefully reviewed with your team. Once approved, NEXT produces a detailed retrofit timeline and gets to work designing a kit for field installation. 100% pre-spooling, NDE, and X-ray completed in a controlled environment for simple installation with next to no field welding. More accuracy, less downtime.
