Common QuestionsIf you’re using OTA Compression’s KS40, you know the answers to all those questions because OTA supplies you with detailed monthly reports. Reports include vital information that let the operator make educated decisions on unit maintenance, placement, ROI, etc. based on unit performance (e.g. criteria found in the report). This same report meets monitoring and documentation requirements of the state department of environment quality of the EPA. Reports detail the unit’s total operational availability, motor runtime, fault time, standby hours and much more.
OTA engineered the KS40 to operate at top efficiency. Instead of constantly cycling on and off as gas pressures fluctuate, small pressure drops initiate the bypass mode, which keeps the gas recirculating until the pressure returns to the level that requires vapor capture.
Its horizontally opposed heads allow the compressor to evacuate liquids during operation and standby modes. This is a closed loop compressor system, which prevents escape of vapors to the atmosphere during run or standby modes. The closed loop design allows for the system to be positively pressurized, thus eliminating any chance of oxygen being introduced into the system. All excess internal pressure is released back into the suction manifold to be sold.
The KS40 compressor is easily maintained – any repairs can be handled in the field, eliminating hours of downtime and allowing the operator to remain well within air quality requirements.
The KS40 compressor is utilized in over 90 percent of OTA’s VRU applications, is extremely user friendly and most replacement parts are easily found at auto part stores.
