Natural Gas is a common product in the energy sector and there are numerous locations where efficient filtration can optimize the gas processing industry to reduce operational and maintenance costs and provide a more productive and safe facility. Natural gas may be filtered to remove just solid particulates, or more commonly filtration would involve liquid-gas coalescing to remove both liquid and solid particulates.
In the oil and gas, petrochemical and oil refining industries, liquid-gas coalescers are widely used to remove water and hydrocarbon liquids to less than 0.003 ppm (plus particulate matter to less than 0.3 um in size) from natural gas to ensure natural gas quality and protect downstream equipment such as compressors, gas turbines, amine or glycol absorbers, molecular sieves, PSA's, metering stations, mercury guard beds, gas fired heaters or furnaces, heat exchangers or gas-gas purification membranes.
Whether your application involves dry contaminants such as desiccant fines, iron oxide, iron sulfide and other particulates from gas streams, or a combination of other liquids such as lube oils etc., it is imperative to work with a company that has the knowledge and experience to provide an optimized solution to meet your process conditions. Call PS Filter®, our team will work with you to ensure we understand all your process particulars to meet your desired effluent quality.
Our filtration equipment will be designed to meet the unique conditions for your specific application. Depending upon the nature of the problem-field handling and gas gathering, gas conditioning and processing, transmission and distribution, or gas injection, our team will design equipment to effectively handle the fluid and contaminant in question.
Removal of liquid aerosols and solids will decrease compressor damage, protect turbo expanders, increase gas analysis accuracy, and optimize gas processing efficiency. Reduction of anti-foam and corrosion chemicals will result in cost savings as well as ensure downstream carbon beds and equipment are not affected by increased chemical additions.
Reduction/recovery of expensive amine and glycol solutions that can carryover with the exiting gas will result in immediate payback and ensure the sales gas meets pipeline specifications. Efficient filtration will reduce workover frequencies and any decreases in operational efficiencies by eliminating any and all of these problems in advance.
