Contaminants in the re-circulating amine cause foaming, fouling and plugging of contactor trays, resulting in amine carry-over, reduced throughput, increased amine make-up, higher differential pressure and reduced adsorptive capacity. Moreover, there are losses due to higher energy consumption and poor heat transfer in the heat exchangers. Contaminants include iron oxides, iron sulfides and other particulate matter.
Filters for amine sweetening give excellent results in terms of amine clarity that becomes transparent visually with excellent removal of total suspended solid impurities
| || Filters at the absorber gas inlet will eliminate solids and prevent foaming, and will protect the recirculating glycol stream resulting in better efficiency of the dehydration process. Filtration removes scale, corrosion and dust particulates to keep |
the recirculating glycol clean and clear.
Produced Water (well water injection and disposal water filtration)
Solid contaminants such as iron oxides, iron sulfides, and asphaltines (tar-like particulate) can cause reduced porosity of the injection well, resulting in premature plugging or other damage to equipment. Filtration of produced water maintains the porosity and injectivity of the well formation, reducing the risk of expensive workovers.
The innovative design of
| || Coalescer cartridges dramatically reduces the cost of filtration with enhanced |
performance. The high-bulk, stable, three-dimensional random structure comprising multi-lobal filaments results in direct interception and coalescence of dispersed liquid phase. Applications include removal of aerosols and condensates from natural gas streams, also removing particulate contaminants down to 0.6 microns.
Gas Distribution Systems (condensate removal)
| ||Coalescer cartridge is ideal for condensate removal and oil adsorption in both liquid/liquid and liquid/gas applications. |
Filtration of lubricating oils before final packing ensures consistent clarity and removes any solid residues.
| || polyester media filter cartridges with galvanized steel core provide superior contaminant retention for lube oil filtration. |
It is important to filter process water to remove silt, sand and other suspended solid contaminants and other impurities from process water for reliable and efficient performance of softeners, deionizers and heat exchangers.
| || extractable-free media cartridges produce excellent silt density index (SDI) results for membrane pre-filtration on RO systems, reducing membrane fouling and cleaning costs, and increased membrane performance and life. |
