Harsco Produces 100,000th ASME-Certified Cooler Section

Harsco Industrial Air-X-Changers / Hammc0o (/Hammco), a Tulsa-based producer of cooling systems for natural gas compression and processing, oil refining and other applications, has produced its 100,000th -certified cooler section.

The milestone section is a key component of a Harsco /Hammco Model 156 EH cooler, a vertical-discharge, forced-draft cooler combining engine and compressor cooling in a single, compact unit. The /Hammco Model EH design is the world’s most popular gas compression cooler design.

The cooler was shipped April 21, 2017 and will be deployed in the Permian Basin of West Texas in a gas compression package driven by a Caterpillar engine with an Ariel compressor.

The section is the 100,000th /Hammco section certified as meeting the internationally recognized standards of the  Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code () of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (). The is the largest and oldest standard and is used in over 100 countries around the world, detailing strict rules for the design, fabrication and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels.

The cooling section is a core component of any air-cooled heat exchanger used for cooling natural gas in the compression process, comprising a precision-engineered matrix of tubes through which gas flows in the cooling process. Gas is cooled by air forced or drawn across the section by a fan.

/Hammco Vice President and General Manager Eric Clower says, “We received our first Certificate of Authorization in 1957, and our first -certified unit shipped in 1958. In 2012, we shipped our 75,000th -certified section. In 2014, Hammco, an Owasso-based leader in cooling solutions for oil refineries as well as natural gas processing, joined us – and the next year, we consolidated all our operations in a 557,000 square-foot, single-campus facility designed to maximize productivity. Now, we’ve reached a major new milestone with the delivery of our 100,000th -certified cooling section. And that production-output doesn’t include the thousands of cooler sections and other components we’ve manufactured that didn’t require certification.”
