Buying Oil and Gas Equipment from LEL
Oil and gas covers a wide net of machinery, ranging from fuel handling equipment to diesel tanks to gas compressors. When it comes to purchasing oil and gas equipment, knowing your needs and understanding how the equipment functions are key.
Below is a list with functional definitions of some current inventory of oil and gas equipment and recent sales to give you an idea of the products LEL has to offer.
Ariel Gas Compressor
Gas compressors are pieces of equipment utilized to maximize a gas’s pressure. They achieve this increase by driving down the gas’s volume. In addition to impacting the gas’s volume, a compressor is capable of pressurizing and moving fluids through a given system.
Gas compressors fall into two key categories based on how they operate: Dynamic compressors and positive displacement compressors. The two main types of dynamic compressors are axial and centrifugal compressors, with the two main positive displacement compressors being reciprocating and rotary systems.
Let’s take a quick look at how each of those systems operates.
- Axial: This dynamic compressor uses rotor blades which rotate like a fan to gradually compress the air in gas turbine engines and other large pieces of machinery.
- Centrifugal: Used in chemical and natural gas plants, these systems use impellers to push the pressurized gas to the surface, converting velocity into pressure.
- Reciprocating: A crankshaft powers pistons which compress the gas. Reciprocating compressors usually found in fields like the automotive industry.
- Rotary: Rotary systems compress air using rotating helical screws to push air into a small space.
Ariel is a leading gas compressor manufacturer, with a large selection of reciprocating and process compressors.
Ariel Gas Compressor Booster
The booster’s job is simple: as its name implies, the booster strengthens the compressor’s ability to pressurize gas.

Heatec and Uniflex Hot Oil Heaters
Because of its viscosity, it can be difficult for oil to remain mobile in some temperatures, necessitating an oil heater. Heatec specializes in a number of oil heaters like the HCI 10010-50-D for sale at LEL. Uniflex is another leading manufacturer of hot oil heaters, whose products we resell at LEL.
Which type of heater your purchase depends upon the specific needs for your machinery, the viscosity of the fluids within it, potential contaminants, and the machine’s pour point.
Used Propane Tanks
Propane tanks are vital to everyday functions in countless industries. When you purchase propane tanks, you need to consider the amount of available area at your job site as well as how much propane is needed for your operation.
Buying or selling a used propane tank from LEL ensures quality customer service and fair prices.
York Frick Screw Compressor Package
Screw compression works differently than other compression systems, with two rotors moving in opposite directions to compress the air between them. These compressors come in two forms: oil-free and oil-injected, the latter of which inserts oil to assist the compression process.
Hoover Vault produces tanks which contain liquids that are either combustible or flammable. These containment tanks meet fire code standards, and because they are crafted with fireproof material, the inner tank itself is protected, so the tank can be monitored and tested for issues like leaks and pressure problems.
Below are two examples from our inventory of fuel tanks:
- 8000 gallon Hoover Vault Tank- Diesel
- 15000 gallon Fuel Tank Envirovault by Phoenix Products EV-15000
