CUI Global Announces Retail Sale Of Its VE TechnologyA® To The Linde Group For Use In Liquid Natural Gas Processing Plant

Stocks in this article: CUI

TUALATIN, Ore., Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems Ltd., has received an order for three (3) sampling systems using its proprietary VE Technology from The Linde Group ( www.linde.com).  The units are being ordered for installation into a Norwegian liquid natural gas ("LNG") processing facility.

The initial order is for three (3) specially designed probe/thermowells and has a value of £252,000 ($410,000).

The VE units will be used to optimize the costly, but vital regeneration of drier beds in a large LNG processing plant.  Drier beds are required to remove all moisture from the natural gas before liquefaction.  If moisture is allowed to break through these beds the facility may have to be shut down for essential maintenance works, often costing millions of dollars.  Moisture breaks through the beds as they become saturated over time.  A regeneration process involving blowing thousands of tons of hot gas back through the beds is periodically required to keep beds functioning effectively.  The trouble with this process is that monitoring and controlling the regeneration process is extremely difficult and the consequences of not having accurate visibility of the state of saturation can cost thousands or even millions of dollars in terms of wasteful or deficient regeneration.

Specially modified VE sample probes will be made from Inconel, a so-called "super-alloy" specifically designed for high temperature applications.  The units will have special VE probe tips and small bore sample lines.  The units will also include the VE pressure reduction system mounted on the head of the probe for precise filtration, pressure and flow control.  The VE probe and sample systems are designed for ultra-fast, accurate transport of trace components (such as moisture) to an analyzer – other systems simply cannot deliver the sample as fast or as accurate and are, therefore, not suitable for process control.
