Harsco AXC acquires Owasso-based Hammco Corp.
By: Phil Mulkins – Tulsa World
Harsco Industrial Air-X-Changers Corp. announced Monday it has acquired Owasso-based Hammco Corp., a manufacturer of gas-processing coolers.
“Our business deals with the transportation of gas from the wellhead downstream to the end use and the removal of heat from the gas in three areas – upstream, midstream and downstream,” Clower said. “Our air coolers remove heat caused by various industrial processes, including heat caused by compression of gas as it passes through pipelines.”
“Heat is also caused by chemical processing of gas and separation into various components — aided by processing coolers,” Clower added. “Harsco AXC equipment is primarily used midstream — in the pipeline transportation phase and downstream. Hammco equipment will complement the downstream processing of natural gas.”
Harsco AXC operates four facilities in the Tulsa area with 315,000 square feet of dedicated manufacturing space. The company produces a full range of models, types and configurations of air coolers that protect gas compression equipment and control the conditioning of natural gas from wellhead — through compression, processing and delivery through pipeline distribution systems. It sells this equipment to a global market.
Harsco also produces lube oil cooling systems tailored to the needs of turbine operators, and has adapted its designs for use in power generation and other applications. It manufactures cooler replacement parts for any make or model of gas-compression cooler in service and offers a full range of on-site field services.
