Westgen Announces EPOD Mini Release

With regulations on methane emissions reductions quickly approaching, Westgen Technologies is proud to announce an addition to their product line – EPOD Mini. Targeted towards smaller pads and retrofit applications, EPOD Mini offers the same great 6 kW solar hybrid system offered in the EPOD at a substantially reduced footprint and price.

Using tried and true technology, the EPOD Mini offers the most cost effective way to eliminate methane venting from pneumatics, and we’d love to prove that to you on a bid! Using a solar hybrid system means that average annual emissions are approximately 75% less than the competition. The EPOD Mini provides unmatched value for remote instrument air applications.
