Natural gas gathering systems deliver large volumes of gas via pipleline to the central inlet of the gas processing facility. Removal of solid contaminants and free liquids present in the inlet gas is critical to the downstream process. Iron oxides, iron sulfides, dirt and other deformable particles can flow into the processing system. Effective removal of these contaminants is needed to prevent fouling. Pentair Porous Media technologies will help with a clean, natural gas feed, reducing upsets and associated...
Fuel Gas Streams are frequently contaminated with liquid aerosols. The liquid exists as a stable and persistent “smoke” in the gas stream. The liquid contaminant can enter the gas stream through any one of a variety of events including – phase separation and condensation, compressor lube-oils from compression, chemical addition to pipelines (including corrosion inhibitors), and entrainment from overheads of contact towers.
Removal of urea and phenol formaldehyde resin and fibers from sizing dye operations, particulate and blue haze emissions from fiberglass mat ovens. Removal of styrene emissions from fiberglass composite manufacturing operations.
The key to optimizing a hydroprocessing unit is to maximize the life of the catalyst bed and increase energy efficiency of the furnaces. Our goal is to eliminate fouling of the catalyst bed by particles and aqueous fluids and the dissolved components within them as well as fouling of hydrogen recovery membranes and furnace-burner tips.
Glycol dehydration is a liquid desiccant system for the removal of water from natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL). It is the most common and economic means of water removal from these streams.Glycols typically seen in industry include triethylene glycol (TEG), diethylene glycol (DEG), ethylene glycol (MEG), and tetraethylene glycol (TREG). TEG is the most commonly used glycol in industry.
Waterborne illness from microbial growth in water distribution systems is a real threat to water safety. MIOX’s patented Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemistry for secondary disinfection can help eradicate biofilm that can harbor Legionella and other microorganisms without the use of Chlorine Dioxide. MIOX generators improve workplace safety by eliminating the handling and storage of hazardous chemicals while maintaining steady disinfection residuals.
There are a number of factors that affect the capacity and operation of a typical amine system. Solid or liquid contaminants in the system may cause foaming. The presence of foaming is typically addressed by the addition of expensive antifoam chemicals and/or by reducing the operating capacity of the amine system. In addition to this, the presence of contaminants in the system can foul heat exchangers and column packing or trays. These solid and liquid contaminants are either ingressed into the system with the...
