Natural Gas Filtration

Filtration Systems Incorporated for Natural Gas Filtration

Natural gas is an abundant clean-burning fuel that provides an important part of the overall energy usage in the United States.  Gas (CH4), also known as methane, undergoes a number of processes as it is transported from wellhead to end-user, and many of these steps require filtration of the product.  Natural Gas filtration is critical. Impurities such as pipe-scale, iron sulfide, hydrates, water, hydrocarbons, sulfur, and carbon dioxide must be removed before it is deemed “pipeline quality”.

Gas-fired engine-compressor sets “gather” the natural gas from the wellheads, and push it to a gas processing plant to make it marketable.  High-quality filtration is imperative to protect compressors and equipment.

  • Natural Gas Filtration Applications:
    • Dehydration (Coalescing Filtration)
      • Dehydration is critical in the Natural Gas filtration process. Removal of hydrates helps ensure equipment runs effectively. Removal of liquids also helps the filtration process properly remove solid contaminates as gas is pushed from upstream to downstream.
        • Benefits:
          • Coalescing liquids is necessary to generate dry gas that can be re-compressed.
          • Protects downstream equipment and increases filtration efficiency.
    • Engine-Compressor Protection
      • High-quality filtration is imperative to protect compressors and equipment.
    • Glycol Process
      • The use of glycol in the filtration process is used to also dehydrate the gas-stream.  It is important to prolong the glycol regeneration loop and to extend the life of both glycol and carbon canisters.
    • Amine Process
      • The use of amine in the filtration process is used to “sweeten” sour gas.
        • Benefits:
          • Reduces “foaming”
          • Protects downstream equipment
