Piston Operated Mixers (POM) with Water Bath Vaporizers

POM Blender VaporizerModel Numbers are WB-168/POM-10 to WB-3000/POM-60. The first part of the model number indicates the vaporizer capacity in gallons per hour, the second part indicates the mixer size (10 - 30 - 40 - 60). All systems combine horizontal water bath vaporizers (08-series or 05-series) with our patented Piston Operated Mixer (POM-series). They can be ordered for installation as individual units (water bath vaporizer and mixer within 15 ft [4.5m] of each other), or as a very compact "Module Unit" (see options), with the POM in "vertical" orientation and installed on the same skid with the vaporizer. In Module Units, all piping between the vaporizer and the blender, and all wiring between the blender and the control panel, are factory-installed, which can reduce installation time considerably. Both versions are equally reliable and have set the standard for value, reliability, ease-of-use, low maintenance, and high availability, in many different applications in many different countries, surpassing other high-capacity / high-pressure blender concepts by far.

To select the correct vaporizer/blender combination, first determine the required vaporizer capacity by adding up the connected load. Including a safety factor of 1.1 to 1.3, select  the vaporizer model.  The capacity of the POM mixer depends on its configuration and the system pressure. In the table below, after selecting the vaporizer model, move to the right  to the desired discharge pressure to find the POM model number and the price for the vaporizer/blender combination.

All WB/POM systems share the control panel between the WB vaporizer and the POM blender. The standard PLC is a Siemens S7-1200, or an Allen-Bradley MicroLogix-1100 or MicroLogic-1400. All PLCs have a built-in Ethernet Interface, and communicate with an Electronic Operator Interface (EOI) with high-resolution color LCD display and Touch Screen. Electrical connections between the POM blender and the control panel are made in two different ways:


In module units (POM mixer on same skid with vaporizer), electrical connections run from the mixer unit directly to the control panel. In individual units, all electrical connections are terminated in an explosion proof junction box at the POM. From there, a multi-wire cable (not included with system) is run to the mixer control panel in the vaporizer control room.


The WB/POM Series is designed for outdoor installation and requires only nominal preventive maintenance. Intended for intermittent or continuous service, the systems are manufactured to meet or exceed requirements of the ASME Pressure Vessel Code Section VIII, and the latest edition of NFPA Pamphlet #58. They are approved by Factory Mutual (FM) and Canadian  Standards Association (CSA), and are suitable for Industrial Risk Insurers (IRI) installations. They can also be configured for European countries (including PED, ATEX, etc.) and carry the CE Mark. All systems are factory tested, primed, painted and ready for installation. They come with 2 sets of operating manuals and test reports. All vaporizers in WB/POM systems are equipped with Rosemount Pressure and Temperature Transmitters in the Vapor Outlet of the vaporizer for "smart" Liquid Carryover Protection, based on pressure/temperature correlation and LPG type (Propane/Butane/...). Nominal Capacity in BTU per hour and NatGas Equivalent** (m3/h; in bottom row) is strictly based on the vaporization capacity of the vaporizer, and is given for Propane/Air mixtures with 1450 BTU/cuft at delivered mixed gas pressures of 10 psig (0.7 bar) to 70 psig (5 bar). Capacity for other LPG/Air mixtures and/or pressures may vary. Nominal Capacity is based on vapor and compressed air inlet pressures of 100-125 psig, and a pressure drop of 10% across the mixing valve at maximum flow.  The minimum vapor and air supply pressures are "Sendout Pressure + 15 psi (1bar)".

Other Vaporizer/Blender configurations (for lower or higher delivery pressures, higher flow rates, other blending gasses, different materials, ...) are available. Please contact the factory or your area distributor for details.


** NatGas Equivalent:    In most cases, these systems will be used to provide backup for a NatGas supply. Including a sufficient safety factor (1.1 ... 1.3), use the maximum expected NatGas flow per hour to select the correct WB/POM model.
