What We Do

Black Powder Solutions Inc. (BPS) is a Canadian company that designs and manufactures patented magnetic separator systems as an inline, full-flow solution for removing Black Powder™ (black powder) contamination from hydrocarbon fluids and gases, refined products, petrochemicals and water.

BPS magnetic separator systems are the sustainable, optimal solution for contamination removal. They are designed to remove contaminants down to sub-micron sizes with 95+% efficiency insingle pass applications and they operate with a bare minimum of flow restriction. Our magnetic separators protect pumps, valves and process equipment from failure along all stages of the hydrocarbon value chain and eliminate the need for conventional, depth-media filtration.

Deployment of BPS technology will ultimately improve system operations, increase production, improve product quality, support safety initiatives and reduce environmental impact.

International Distribution


BPS’s magnetic systems offer the solution for a safer work enviroment by reducing the exposure to Black Powder. Traditional filtration methods may require up to 12 replacements annually, increasing opportunity of injury. This is achieved through the containment and cleaning processes associated with our technology. Very little handling of the Black Powder is necessary during the cleaning process. Companies can choose 3 different cleaning systems; each of these greatly reduces exposure to Black Powder.


BPS’s technology is an environmentally responsible alternative to traditional filtration. BPS technology offers a 15 + year product life. It is a cleanable technology which significantly reduces the consumption traditional depth media filters. Black Powder Magnetic Separators working in tandem with existing traditional filtration systems is a solution for reducing the number of disposable filters. Finally, BPS offers a product which reduces pipeline spills by reducing pipeline corrosion and erosion of the pipeline wall.


Management of Black Powder due to pipeline corrosion has been identified as one of the most costly issues in the upstream, midstream and downstream of the oil and gas industry. The ROI is quickly realized with BPS technology as it operates with minimal consumables; the cost of operation per year of BPS Black Powder Separator technology is on average 10% of traditional filtration systems on gas pipelines. On hydrocarbon fluid pipelines, the ROI for replacement of traditional basket and cone strainer technology is also quickly realized by extended pump, meter, and pipe wall life. Ultimately, BPS technology is a solution to significantly increase a company’s profit margin by reducing the cost of production at every juncture of the production process, plus, it provides a much cleaner end product which also increases the value of the product to the consumer.

Black Powder Contamination

Black Powder is an industry name for the abrasive, reactive contamination particulate present in all gas and hydrocarbon fluid transmission lines due to pipeline corrosion. Black Powder will range from light brown to black and the mineral make up will vary per production field around the world.
