Stop by our booth (booth #718) to learn more about what PAN systems
can do for your pulsation problems and how they help to increase flow!

Optimum Pumping Technology's PAN System in the news!

“By canceling pulsations, rather than dampening them as
current bottle pulsation control approaches do,
the PAN reduces system pressure losses...”

Successful GMRC Full-Scale PAN Field Test Results

PAN Technology has been the subject of the largest research project ever undertaken by the GMRC with participation from many industry leaders. These field tests of PAN technology employed redundant measurements by multiple parties to ensure accurate data collection. This 600+ page report to the GMRC and 2015 GMC short course proves conclusively that PAN technology delivers on its promises.

A timeline of technological achievements:


A second PAN system has been installed and is running in production at William's Lathrop station!

Our PAN Technology has been awarded a Patent in Canada (Patent #2,733,280)!!
We are continuing to seek worldwide patent protection for PAN technology and expect more patents to be approved in the coming months.

The PAN has been installed and is running in production at William's Zick station!!
We have a team of engineers taking measurements and we will pass along our results as soon as the GMRC gives us the green light!

OPTIMUM PUMPING TECHNOLOGY has collaborated with some of the most respected companies and organizations in the Natural Gas Pipeline industry to ensure the successful introduction and widespread adoption of our new technology.

ACI Logo graphic
ACI is a well known service and solutions provider to the Natural Gas Industry.  They have partnered with us to design and supply the Pipe Junctions, called TST's used in our PAN installations.   Click here for more information. Also, check out the TV business spot on ACI, including PAN technology!

GMRC Logo graphic
The Gas Machinery Research Council has been involved and interested in our technology since 2006.  They have helped to fund research in the area of PAN development and we have authored many technical papers for the GMC. Click here for more information.

Kinder Morgan logo graphic
The El Paso Corporation (subsequently bought out by Kinder Morgan) were the first to approach us to design and develop PAN technology and has provided funding as well as allowed our PANs to be applied to their own stations as part of the development of the technology.   Click here for more information.
