- Connect the ReCAP™ suction and discharge lines.
- Turn the system on to begin moving gas from one system to the other.
- Once the gas has been recaptured and discharged, turn off ReCAP™ and disconnect.
In just three easy steps, the ReCAP™ Emissions Recovery System removes and captures methane from isolated pipeline sections without the need for voluntary venting or flaring. This process is simple and fast. ReCAP™ includes WeldFit’s patent-pending, state-of-the-art XR technology, which is designed to move gas at a constant rate, allowing you to meet ESG-related emissions reduction goals by keeping gas in the pipeline.
WeldFit’s crews connect the suction line of the ReCAP™ unit to the isolated pipeline section to be depressurized and then connect the discharge line to the adjacent pipeline system. During the process, our crews take care to create no-leak seals at all connection points –– all in line with HSE and ESG objectives.
With a push of a button, ReCAP™ depressurizes the isolated section and recompresses the methane for discharge into the adjacent pipeline system. No matter the pressure differential, the gas will flow at a constant Transfer Rate (XR), allowing for an efficient movement of gas out of the isolated section and into the adjacent pressurized pipeline system. ReCAP™ keeps your gas in the pipeline, where it can continue flowing to market, while allowing your operations to comply with established methane emissions reduction goals.
