UltiSep® Past Performance Leads To New Win In Gas Plant

Source: Pentair

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.

Years later, due to increase gas available through the Eagle Ford Shale they expanded the plant with a second cryogenic train able to process up to 600 MMSCFD. The plant manager of the facility did not purchase a new UltiSep® separator and did not replace elements that had blown out just replaced single elements one by one with a competitor’s element and not Pentair APEX® elements.
