How to install a stage III oil vapor liquefaction recovery device that guarantees gas station profits Oct 16th, 2022
Stage I and Stage II must be installed compulsorily according to national policy. However, the oil vapor recovered from stage I is taken by the gasoline supplier, and the stage II recovery facility incurs too much cost. In the end, these two recovery facilities cannot be economically satisfactory from the gas station's point of view.
In order to solve this problem, the oil vapor recovered from stage I should be beneficial to the gas station, and the efficiency of stage II should be increased. So, although several companies have introduced Stage III devices to the market over the past decade, they are still not widely deployed. The reason is simple. that the cost is excessive. This is because the excessive cost will inevitably cause additional economic damage to the gas station.
Therefore, it is most important that the stage III liquefaction recovery device be manufactured to achieve sufficient performance at a low cost. It is also very important to secure additional safety. Ultimately, the key is to increase performance and safety while lowering the price. Unfortunately, there are few cases where gas stations currently offer satisfactory prices. It would take at least 5 to 10 years for the gas station to introduce the device and recover the cost if it can afford prices ranging from $17,000 to $40,000. There are not many gas stations that can make such a long-term investment.
On the other hand, Emglobal finds a way to reasonably balance price, performance and safety.
GASminer presented by Emglobal is a solution that allows gas stations to make a reasonable choice considering the size of the gas station, the price of gasoline, and the local climate. GASminer is divided into Full miner, Vent miner, Tank miner, and Backup2 miner. Each is very inexpensive compared to existing similar products, and it can be seen that there is a revolutionary advantage because it guarantees a 10-year free warranty and an additional 10-year paid warranty
The Full Miner is less than half the price of competing products in Europe and Japan, but the price is more than $13,000 per unit, which is still a burden for small and medium-sized gas stations. Therefore, it is suitable for very large gas stations, where daily sales exceed 15,000 liters, gasoline price is more than $2 per liter, or in tropical regions where the year-round temperature exceeds 25 degrees Celsius.
In fact, what makes GASminer so special is its Vent Miner and Tank Miner. These two products do not omit stage I, but rather allow a connection so that a tank truck can recover some of the oil vapor. That is, a connection method is provided so that the tank truck can contain the residual oil vapor that GASminer has not completely liquefied. Therefore, even if GASminer can handle only 70~80% of oil vapor, not 99%, it can prevent 100% of oil vapor from being discharged into the atmosphere. At the same time, the GASminer can be further miniaturized, and the price can be kept as low as possible. In addition, the recovered oil vapor is immediately liquefied, and the gas station's profits are immediately realized.
The Vent Miner and Tank Miner achieve breakthrough cost savings and miniaturization that have no competition at all, costing only $8,000 per unit. As the price includes installation, 10-year warranty, and free maintenance, the gas station can recover all its investment within 3 years and enjoy net profit for at least 7 to 17 years.
Stage III has not yet spread not only in Korea, but also anywhere in the world. The liquid recovery solution presented by Emglobal this time is expected to bring about a big change in the market as it solves the problems of cost and profit, which were the biggest obstacles to diffusion. As Stage III liquefaction recovery devices are expanded and distributed, the air we breathe will be cleaner and gas stations will earn more.
