Transmission & Town Border Stations
Bruest offers a variety of solutions for the Transmission and Town Border Stations (TBS), including the use of town border station heaters. For smaller TBS locations, Bruest provides the Twin-Pak pipeline heater and the Freez-Fiter family of fuel gas heaters. The Twin-Paks are easy to install, requires no modification of the existing pipeline, and can be shipped quickly. For applications requiring higher capacity, the Freez-Fiter family of fuel gas heaters are available up to 96,000 BTU input. Compact, silent, and simple to operate, they serve as efficient town border station heaters.
The HOTCAT family of line heaters are efficient and safe alternatives for larger TBS and compressor station fuel gas heating applications. Like all of Bruest’s families of heaters, the HOTCATs are silent during normal operation, requires no glycol, and emits minimal amounts of NOx to reduce the impact on the environment. Furthermore, with multiple heat exchanger designs, the HOTCATs offers the ability to achieve higher output gas temperature than other heating technologies.
Here is an example installation near the entrance to a small town in Michigan. The HOTCAT has been installed right by the Town Border Station. The HOTCAT was selected due to its lower visbility, silent operation, and odor free characteristics.
