Improve Site Safety

The Steffes Pressure Regulating Blower (PRB) is a cost-effective, emissions-compliance solution that allows operators to safely reduce tank pressure and minimize the risk of methane leaking into the atmosphere from the thief hatch.

As pressure builds in holding tanks, the PRB is engaged, sending excess gas to be burned by the flare on location, efficiently and reliably combusting volatile organic compound emissions.

Operators can install the Steffes PRB on new sites or use it to retrofit older sites without upgrading lines or equipment. Our system is designed for optimum operation, with automated controls and programming to protect the integrity of the equipment, including auto-cycling and auto-shutdown features.

The unit comes as a prefabricated package, including a motorized blower mounted on a skid table, complete with a UL-listed controller. Its Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) touchscreen makes it easy to use and provides a range of features to safely reduce back pressure and improve well site productivity.


  • Adjustable variable speed drive
  • PLC touchscreen with data logging capability
  • Designed to hold tank pressure at a user-set levels
  • Run time and flow monitoring with SCADA capability
  • Reduces thief hatch leaking without creating a vacuum at the tanks
  • Optional accessories include an insulated steel cover or enclosed building allowing the PRB motor to run more efficiently in colder temperatures
