zephyr trailer mounted vapor combustor

Zeeco maintains a rental fleet of skid and trailer-mounted vapor combustor units (VCU) staged around the world and available on demand. Designed with the end user in mind, our rental vapor combustors offer easy operation and installation within a matter of hours. Whether you need a simple skid-mounted design, or a fully-automated, trailer mounted ZEECO® Zephyr™, users depend on our proven, reliable smokeless solutions.

Wide range of applications.

Each Zeeco vapor combustor is engineered to operate safely through a wide range of relief conditions. From low flow and low pressure hydrocarbon gas streams to contaminated air streams, Zeeco’s high capacity rental vapor combustor systems provide clean flames, consistent smokeless operation, and high destruction efficiencies.

Meet regulatory requirements.

Zeeco's vapor combustors are fully enclosed to efficiently use both combustion and quench air. The combustion enclosure maintains precise chamber temperatures and ensures optimal destruction and removal efficiencies (DRE) to meet or exceed the most stringent clean-air standards. Our vapor combustor can be fully automatic or manually operated, depending on your specific needs and regulatory requirements. Typically used in liquid loading and tank degassing operations to destroy harmful emissions that emanate from fumes, vapor combustors fill diverse roles and can be used in multiple applications while maintaining optimal efficiency.
