Black Powder contamination was damaging meters, valves, and compressor seals. Costly monthly maintenance was required to repair and clean the pipe system and compressor components.
Install a high pressure magnetic separator on the compressor.
After 3 months and 309,218 SCM of natural gas, a significant amount of ferrous and non-ferrous Black Powder contamination was captured.
The BPS Magnetic Separator is still currently installed with full efficiency and effectiveness. No maintenance crews have been required to repair the compressors since its deployment.
