Natural Gas Plant Amine Unit – Bags To V-Max Case Study
A Louisiana Gas Plant was having issues cleaning their amines to an acceptable level. Upon having quality discussions about the issues they were having we learned that in addition to their Amines being contaminated, they were utilizing bag filters and they were changing them weekly.
Wastewater Plant Struggles With Particulate Contamination
A plant in the southwest US commissioning a wastewater plant utilizing proprietary technology for the removal of benzene, toluene, and xylene, or BTX, was experiencing challenges with throughput and elevated operational costs due to the presence of particulate contaminants.
Amine Filtration Upgrade In Louisiana Case Study
A gas processing facility in the Haynesville Shale in Louisiana runs two trains processing approximately 225 MMSCFD of sour gas and was experiencing frequent filter change outs and foaming in the amine regeneration tower. This was a new plant that was put in service in four years ago and had purchased Pentair’s UltiSep® vessels for the inlet separation on trains 1 and 2 as well as upstream of their glycol unit. The plant did not utilize Pentair’s particle filtration vessels when the plant was built.
Amine Systems Treat Acid Gases In Refineries And Gas Processing Plants
Amine systems are used to treat acid gases in a number of industries including refineries and gas processing plants. A typical amine system consists of absorption column where the sour gas or liquid is contacted with a lean amine.

Pentair Oil & Gas Separations Overview
Pentair designs and manufactures advanced technologies for the high performance separation of liquids, solids, and gases. The company's offerings help increase throughput, reduce operating cost, and minimize waste for the gas, refining, chemical, and power generation industries.
Produced Water Management With Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology
The oil and gas exploration industry is under pressure to address mounting water management challenges including excessive transportation and disposal costs, an ever-changing regulatory environment, and public demands for sustainability. Produced Water Management with Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology (HRT) from Pentair Separations offers an effective, safe solution for the treatment of produced water streams prior to disposal, reinjection, or reuse.
Pentair Liquid Aerosol Removal Demo
Pentair’s APEX® technology keeps annular velocities constant across the entire height of the element when compared to a conventional element that is often inefficient at removing aerosols. APEX® elements do not have to be spaced as far apart, which allows for the same flows to be handled in a smaller vessel and reduces capital costs.
UltiSep® Past Performance Leads To New Win In Gas Plant
A gas plant operating in Markham, TX processes about 150 MMSCFD through a single cryogenic train. Upon initial startup of the plant they purchased an UltiSep® separator to remove particulate and liquid aerosol droplets from the inlet natural gas to the plant.
UltiSep® Water In Air Pilot Case Study
Pentair engaged in an optimization project with one of the top Biotechnology Companies in the US. The focus of the strategy was to conduct an in-field slipstream air test to validate the enhanced vapor separation performance associated with Pentair’s UltiSep® technology, in comparison to the existing conventional filter-coalescer.
Efficiency Of Filter/Coalescer Vessels For Truck Racks
A gas processing plant in the Barnett Shale of North Texas has recently added the ability to handle natural gas liquids (NGLs) from trucks.
Helping Prevent Water Issues In Gas Pipelines In The Bakken
The oil & gas industry has been rapidly developing in the Williston Basin Region, capitalizing on the rich resources in its Bakken Shale.
Bags Don't Cut It: Achieve Better Throughput With V-Max
A Northeastern chemical manufacturer is currently utilizing 50 um conventional bags at their blending and shipping loading rack. Where the existing fluid quality through the 50 um bags has been found to be acceptable, the unit is challenged by exceptionally high change out rates contributing to increased labor, which means increased costs and increased safety risks. They have also been experiencing reduced throughput.
Pentair’s Polarex® Patent Approved
On April 23rd, 2013 US Patent 8425663 for Polarex®, an extractive separations technology was approved. Pentair’s Director of Sales and Process Technology, Carl Hahn, Ph.D had a leading role in the development of the breakthrough technology.
X-Flow Membranes Succesfully Used For Oil Field Produced Water Reuse
Three large-scale projects that use Pentair X-Flow membrane technology developed for the reuse of produced water for injection purposes or Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes have been successfully commissioned in Chinese oil fields.
Pentair And Tyco International’s Flow Business Combine to Create Pentair Ltd.
Pentair Ltd. recently announced the completion of the merger of Pentair, Inc. and the Flow Control business of Tyco International Ltd.
Pentair Bag Filters Optimization Case Study
A large US chemical plant that manufacturers monomer for paint coatings was spending more than $90,000 per year on bag filters.
Optimized Performance For Produced Water Filtration
For a major global oil and gas producer in central Wyoming, elevated solids in the 25,000 bbl/day of produced water led to erosionary wear in the high-pressure injection pumps, resulting in high costs and excessive maintenance. Pentair Separation Systems successfully optimized the produced water filtration across the entire production site with VMAX coreless element technology, resulting in a total realized savings of over $200,000.
Have You Ever Had A Slug Of Hydrocarbon Contaminate Your Amine?
A Gulf Coast refinery’s amine system was contaminated with up to 3% hydrocarbon. The contamination consisted of hydrocarbon from upstream process units and particulate. The hydrocarbon consisted of LCO and heavy diesel. The current system consisted of an undersized flash tank and a 20% slipstream filtration. The current system could not remove the contaminants so the refinery had to decommission the amine and replace it with new fresh amine.

Process Plants frequently encounter process upsets and other events that affect throughput and increase operating costs, thereby adversely affecting profitability. In many cases, these events are related to solid or liquid contaminants entering the unit in the liquid or gas streams. Once the causes of these process upsets or constraints are identified to pertain to the need for better separations, there is an immediate need for the separations equipment.
Plants have already taken advantage of Pentair technology for a number of systems including some of the following:
