Oil & Gas

Downstream Refining

Filtration and separation solutions for refinery unit operations.

maximize performance and reliability

Oil and gas refining process rely on the purity of feed streams for efficient process reactions.  Removal of fluid and particulate contaminants from feed streams and fluid recirculation processes is essential for improving refining efficiency. Our advanced filtration solutions deliver premium filtration and fluid separation performance for a variety of refining processes such as alkylation, caustic treatment, amine and catalyst recirculation systems, fluid separations and much more.  As the industry leader in innovative filtration technology, We offer premium filtration solutions for refining applications that maximize contaminant removal, minimize maintenance downtime, and extend the life of capital equipment for dramatically improved business performance.

 

Efficient filtration performance is essential for improving the performance of refinery processes.  Whether it be hydrocarbon feedstocks or supporting fluid systems such as solvents or catalysts, fluid streams that are free of contaminants facilitate efficient reactions and improve output quality.

 

With advanced media designs and materials, our filtration solutions maximize the capture of contaminants that are not only harmful to the immediate process, but can damage equipment further downstream resulting in lengthy and costly maintenance interventions. Along with increased capacities, the frequency of filter maintenance activities is significantly reduced to further reduce operating costs. For fluid recycle streams, our high performance filtration extends the life of costly fluids such as solvents and catalysts as well.

 

Advanced filtration solutions deliver premium performance for a wide range of refinery applications

 

Our refinery filtration products are specifically engineered to maximize contaminant removal and operate with longer onstream life for a truly streamlined operation that directly and positively impact business performance.

 

In today’s business environment, refinery process efficiency is as important as ever. Minimizing downtime, improving process reactions and output products, and reducing operating costs are essential to optimizing business performance. Effective and reliable filtration solutions have direct and significant impacts on each of these concerns. As the global leader in innovative filtration technologies, we understand the pain points of the refining operation and has developed premium filtration solution to improve performance across numerous refining processes.

 

Throughout the refining operation, both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance activities are major contributors to operational downtime. Regardless of the process, whether it be alkylation, caustic treatment, feedstock filtration, or anything else, contamination poses significant risks that can result in extensive and costly downtime. With our filtration solutions, contaminant removal is maximized with greatly reduces the risk of equipment failure and unscheduled maintenance interventions.  Furthermore, with longer onstream life, the frequency of scheduled maintenance operations is reduced.

 

The purity of feedstocks and supporting fluid streams such as solvents and catalysts are essential to producing high quality end products. Our effective and reliable filtration and separation technologies remove harmful contaminants and facilitate efficient refining reaction that improve end-product quality and minimize product waste.

 

Our advanced filtration solutions are engineered to improve the refining process through effective and reliable contaminant removal, reduced maintenance downtime, extended life of capital equipment, and enhanced end-product quality for a truly streamlined operation and significantly increased business performance.

Maximize Contamination Removal

As the industry leader in innovative filtration technology, We offer premium filtration solutions for refining applications that maximize contaminant removal.

Refinery Alkylation

The alkylation process is a crucial step in producing high octane blending components for gasoline. In order to create high quality alkylates, feedstocks must be rid of contaminants such as particulates and water that can dramatically decrease the efficiency of the process and the quality of the end product. Pall liquid/liquid coalescers will effectively meet the needs of alkylation upstream and downstream clarification needs.

Refinery Amine Systems

A refinery’s Acid Gas Removal Unit (AGRU) removes acid gases from the raw RFG to meet RFG specifications. The removal process typically uses aqueous solutions of amines to achieve reliable treatment. Poor performance of the AGRU results in off-spec RFG, leading to poor combustion downstream, emissions exceedances and potential downturn of refinery unit opertions in an effort to regain RFG specifications. Application of SepraSol Plus L/G coalescers, Ultipleat High Flow particulate filters and PhaseSep L/L coalescers improve and stabilize AGRU operations.

Refinery Caustic Treatment

The process of refining LPG, petroleum fuels, heating oils and other liquid fractions often includes caustic treating to neutralize acidic and other contaminants. The treating results in residual spent caustic, a high pH wastewater that is no longer useful and detrimental to product specifications. Spent caustic is comprised of a very stable emulsion that is difficult to separate and must be aggressively treated with superior removal technology.

H2SO4 Alkylation

Olefins (C3-C4) from the FCC unit are combined with isobutane (i-C4). Concentrated Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4) is then mixed in and fed to the reactor that is operated with refrigeration to minimize formation of by-products.

Delayed Coking

Coking is a unit operation found in more complex refineries to convert tarry residual or ‘resid’ streams from vacuum and atmospheric distillation into value-added products and intermediates such as LPG, naphtha, diesel, light and heavy gas oils.
