Black Powder Contamination
An industry name for the abrasive contamination particulate present in all gas and hydrocarbon fluid transmission lines due to corrosion and erosion of pipeline walls.
BPS designs and manufactures patented Magnetic Separation systems in a modular format for full flow application of hydrocarbon fluid transmission pipelines.
BPS employs a patented radial magnetic filter rod technology in the construction of the BPS Separators which captures ferrous and non-ferrous material to sub-micron levels with minimal flow restriction.
Targa Resources Loading Line Application
Black Powder Contamination plugging off traditional basket strainer filters during loading. Small quantities of large particulate saturated the basket screens and plugged off flow. The incoming dock filters would allow the Black Powder to enter the facility, impeding loading and creating costly downtime and demurrage penalties.
