The gas buffer has been developed for the storage of various gas types. A gas buffer also enables the conditioning and mixing of the gas. The use of double membrane technology ensures a fl exible gas storage volume. Our wide range of gas buffers provides for an effi cient construction for the most diverse storage criteria and project objectives.

Case Silodak

In the United Arab Emirates Wiefferink recently installed a silo cover of 59.5 meters in diameter. For this size a renewed strap concept is applied which guarantees the cover for long term use.

Flexible gas storage, for both temporary and long-term gas storage

WIEFFERINK OFFERS THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR ANY TYPE OF GAS STORAGE. THE NEED FOR GAS STORAGE IS PROJECTSPECIFIC AND USUALLY DEPENDS ON THE GAS PRODUCTION AND THE SPACE AVAILABLE. GAS BUFFERS CAN BE USED FREE-STANDING, BUT CAN ALSO BE INSTALLED IN TANKS, CONTAINERS OR BUILDINGS.

The type of foil of both the inner and outer membranes is selected depending on the type of gas and the gas storage location. The gas storage systems are suitable for products including (refi ned) biogas, (pure) CO2 and natural gas. A static analysis is a standard part of each project. Depending on the design, a gas buffer can store up to 30,000 cubic metres.

Service-box

The innovative design of the service box enables all connections to be above the ground and consequently simple to make. The blower, control unit and sensors also remain easily accessible during operation, so operating costs are very low. The service box is in 316 stainless steel, meaning weather infl uences have no impact on the technical installation.

 

High quality, certified materials

The gas buffer is produced on the basis of high quality materials and gas-resistant foils. The welding work is high-frequency or thermal, depending on the foil type. The production method is ISO-certifi ed and carried out by experienced employees so that Wiefferink can guarantee the highest quality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

DIFFERENT DESIGNS

 

Gas buffer Dome

A free-standing gas dome is mounted on concrete foundations and gas-tight sections. A gas dome can be provided in either three-quarter or spherical form. Continuously driven blowers ensure the required operating pressure. The main areas of application are industry, water treatment and biogas installations.

Gas buffer Silo

With its durable nature, gas can also be stored in a wooden silo for which a suitable lung is developed and provided with fl exible seals and air-supported roof. The variable diameter and wall height of the wooden casing allows for the storage of large gas volumes. The construction height can be limited without decreasing the required volume. The construction can be relocated and after years of use the wooden wall is still suitable for re-use.

Gasbuffer halfverzonken

Voor gebieden waar het grondwaterpeil het toelaat of waar bouwvergunning een beperking ten aanzien van de hoogte opgelegt, is gasopslag in een (bestaande) lagune een economische en effectieve oplossing. Hierdoor is de hoogte van de gasopslag beperkt, waardoor deze toepassing goed past in het landschap. Op basis van een lining, een betonrand en een luchtgedragen dubbel membraan dak, vergelijkbaar met Wiefferink’s AB-Cover, kan in deze oplossing een passend alternatief zijn voor silo’s of grote gaszakken.

Gas buffer Cylinder

Specially developed for smaller volumes, this technically simple but complete gas storage system can offer a cost-effective solution. Depending on the available space, an outer cylinder anchored in the ground can have a variable diameter and length. A second variable volume enclosed by the outer cylinder has condensation water drainage. A blower sized for the application provides pressure on the inner and outer walls of both cylinders.
