FIBA, the leading manufacturer of high pressure gas storage systems, has designed and built a special mobile gas pumper for Air Products Express (APEX) at its Midvale, Ohio plant. The pumper trailer provides short-term emergency industrial gas supplies for when end users have unplanned maintenance periods and peak demand surges. It is also ideal for remote projects and for start-up sites.
“This is one of the most sophisticated and complex products FIBA has ever made,” says FIBA Sales Manager Dan McCall. “APEX is renowned for providing a fast response. With this state-of-the-art unit, APEX can respond to customer demands with a super-quick and super-flexible service.”
The mobile pumper unit can be used for a variety of gases, including nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen. It will be used in a wide range of deployments, including purging and inerting systems; cooling of catalytic reactors and heat exchangers; drying process equipment; pressure testing piping systems and gas storage; and product displacement.
It is designed as a self-contained operation for a fast set-up.
