Oil & Gas
Advanced filtration solutions for the oil & gas industry deliver enhanced filtration performance across the upstream, midstream, and downstream business units for reduced operating costs and improved process efficiency.
Effective and reliable filtration is extremely important through the production, transportation, and refining of produced hydrocarbons. Failure to remove contaminants from critical processes results in decreased process efficiency, increased operating costs and heightened risk of damaging sensitive equipment downstream.
While each filtration step is extremely important, upstream filtration operations sets the stage for the rest of the journey for produced hydrocarbons. Mistakes in this part of the business can cascade and magnify resulting in extensive maintenance downtime for pipeline or equipment repairs. This same principal applies until the very last filtration step of the refining process. Implementing an optimized oil & gas filtration strategy across the business is key to reducing operating costs, minimizing downtime and improving overall business performance.
As the global leader in advanced filtration technology, we have developed premium oil & gas filtration solutions for all aspects of the industry, which improve contaminant removal, reduce the frequency of maintenance activities, meet end-product quality specifications and lower operating costs for a streamlined and optimized hydrocarbon processing operation.
The oil & gas industry is comprised of an extremely complex network of processing and pipeline equipment. For this series of piping and equipment to reliably function at its highest level – the fluids being transported must effectively be filtered, along with the ancillary fluid loops, like the equipment lubricants, catalysts, and solvents. Ineffective filtration at any point in the process can result in costly consequences that intensify as you move further downstream in the process.
From upstream solids removal and fluid separation, to midstream compressor reliability, to the precision downstream refining processes – Oil & gas filtration requirements are incredibly diverse. Our line of coalescer elements deliver premium solids removal and fluid separation in the upstream segment that aids in preventing contaminants from damaging downstream pipelines and process equipment. Phase separation and particulate removal in the downstream segment promote high efficiency processes. Filtration for lubricant oil systems ensure midstream compressor reliability to minimize downtime as well as preserve the life of capital equipment.
