Filtration Equipment & Package

Filtration is commonly the mechanical or physical operation which is used for the separation of solids from fluids (liquids or gases) by interposing a medium through which only the fluid can pass. Oversize solids in the fluid are retained, but the separation is not complete; solids will be contaminated with some fluid and filtrate will contain fine particles (depending on the pore size and filter thickness).

Filtration is used to separate particles and fluid in a suspension, where the fluid can be a liquid, a gas or a supercritical fluid. Depending on the application, either one or both of the components may be isolated. Filtration is also important and widely used as one of the unit operations of chemical engineering. It may be simultaneously combined with other unit operations to process the feed stream, Petrofam offers a wide range of filter housings to remove solid or liquid contaminants from either liquid or gas streams. These streams can include glycol, produced water, produced oil or condensate, natural gas, and other streams typically seen from producing wells.
Typical applications for Petrofam filtration system include vertical coalescing filters, horizontal filter separators, and charcoal adsorbers.
The vertical coalescing filter is best suited for coalescing of liquid vapors for low to moderate flow rates, minimal solids removal, and minimal free liquids removal.
The horizontal filter separator is best suited for solids removal, free liquids removal, moderate coalescing of liquid vapors, and moderate to high flow rates.
The charcoal adsorber is designed to remove hydrocarbons from glycol systems on glycol absorbers. Hydrocarbon contamination of the glycol system causes foaming to occur in the glycol absorber, thus causing excessive glycol loss.
Petrofam filtration systems applications include:

  • Filter elements included that remove 99.9% of particles (or aerosols) 0.1 micron and larger
  • Vane or wire mesh mist extractor
  • Dual chamber for free liquid removal
  • Full opening closure for easy filter element change out

Also following requirement have been met in Petrofam Filtration Package:

  • All Filtration Package designed according to international standards like ASME Section VIII Div. 1 and Div. 2 Codes
  • Filtration elements will be supplied from well known manufacturer.
  • Tank could be equipped with well known manufacturer closures (QOC).
  • All welds are inspected and NDT tested.
  • All tanks are hydrostatically tested.
