Natural gas gathering system for inlet gas separation - Oil, Gas & Refineries - Gas

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 downtime and increase productivity, lowering capital costs with fewer change-outs.


UltiSep sets a new standard in high-performance gas/liquid separation. UltiSep utilizes Pentair Porous Media’s proprietary microfiber media technology and patented APEX element design. These technologies are applied for high efficiency bulk liquid and aerosol removal from process streams. APEX technology affords the user an unprecedented ability to reduce liquid carryover and pressure drop while providing smaller footprints and lower capital costs. UltiSep housing configurations are designed via the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and other proprietary computer models that ensure accurate and complimentary design in conjunction with APEX. The implementation of these technologies offers the ideal business model for value added and optimized systems.

UltiSep offers the ability to maximize operational profitability by minimizing entrained liquids in process gas streams. Eliminating liquid and solid carry-over minimizes process upsets and the corresponding issues associated with them, such as; product loss, fluid make-up, off-spec products, contamination in feed streams entering processes, emulsions, foaming, fouling, corrosion and mechanical wear.

UltiSep allows the removal of liquids ranging from bulk fluids to entrained droplets as small as a viral particle, improving operational efficiency and profitability.


The InterSep high performance separation system is designed and manufactured to separate particulate contaminants from gas streams. With Pentair Porous Media's COMPAX coreless elements, which flow from the outside-to-the-inside, and is offered with an extended surface area media configuration utilizing our proprietary NexCel media. The media provides robust performance in glycol and aqueous service as well as hydrocarbon applications. COMPAX coreless element designs are currently being used by a large number of gas plants and hydrocarbon processes due to the superior operating economics and ergonomic advantages.
