Vapor Recovery Systems
Since 1952, our HY-BON division has designed, manufactured and serviced compression-based Vapor Recovery Units for the Oil & Gas and Biogas industries, while our Jordan Technologies division has provided activated-carbon based Vapor Recovery Systems for the Marine & Liquid Terminals market.
Cimarron has been a manufacturer of Vapour Recovery Systems (VRUs) since 1952. A Vapour Recovery Unit is one of the most efficient ways of capturing the vapours generated from standard oil and gas production processes, biogas or stranded coal mines applications, and generating revenue from this by-product as a result.
Specifically for the oil & gas industry, Cimarron's Vapour Recovery Towers (VRTs) provide flash gas recovery at near atmospheric pressure without the potential of oxygen ingress from the top of the storage tanks. The ability to create the vapour flash inside the VRT often reduces storage tank emissions to less than 6 tons per year, exempting the tank battery from Quad O reporting requirements. The VRT creates a “closed system”, preventing the potential for human error or vapour leakage from open or leaking thief hatches.

Activated Carbon-based VRUs
For terminals (rail, marine storage) loading as well as retail gasoline station unloading applications, an activated-carbon based Vapor Recovery Unit is preferred. While our VRU designs continue to evolve based on constant field feedback from our service technicians, customers, and changing industry requirements, we rely primarily on dry vacuum pumps technology (manufactured by industry leaders Busch and HORI) due to its overall reliability and lower contamination of recovered vapors by lubricating-oils and glycol.
