Standard, Mother, Daughter
Station equipment is sourced and configured for specific fueling situations
Standard stations for NGV fueling with CNG will generally include an inlet dryer to remove moisture, compressor sheds consisting of a motor, compressor and cooling unit, a priority panel that manages the gas flow into storage vessels (required for fast-fill dispensing) and controls panels. Standard stations may include a booster system where the gas source is less than 60 psi.
Mother stations are used to dispense large volumes of gas into mobile
storage trailers which transport the gas to sites that do not have access to
a natural gas pipeline.
Daughter stations are used where a CNG fueling
station is needed and there is no natural gas pipeline.
Pressure Reduction Systems are used to
adjust the pressure for offloading to Daughter
stations or other gas distribution systems.
