Machine Lubrication published an article on Black Powder Solutions in regards to the damaging contaminant, Black Powder, present in all hydrocarbon and gas transmission lines.

“Black powder, a ferrous contaminant created by internal erosion and¬† corrosion of carbon steel pipelines and operating equipment, causes many operational problems. Black powder ranges from 100 microns and greater to sub-micron sizes, with the majority being ferrous (on average 80 percent) and silica (20 percent). It causes many costly problems for the pipeline and processing industries, such as: degrading of product supplied to the consumer, reduced production values from premature pumps, turbine/compressor component wear and tear, premature wear of transmission lines, plugging of meters and traditional filters and seizing of valves.”
