Black Powder Contamination

Magnetic Separation Technology saves $390k a year

Midstream Operator – Coyanosa Texas, Mar 2022 Problem The operator identified high levels of black powder contamination in their condensate production. The contamination was reducing the quality and sale price of the condensate along with increased costs from conventional filter change-outs and shutdowns. The conventional filters were ineffective in removing nano-size particles of black powder …

Improved Performance in Amine Treater Systems

Midstream Operator – Coyanosa Texas, Dec 2021 Problem Black Powder contamination under 5 microns in size was causing costly filter change-outs and reduced efficiency of the Amine system to remove H2S and Co2. Solution The customer installed a BPS Magnetic Separator (Figure-2) upstream of the coalescer elements with the goal to clean the black powder …

Aviation Fuel Cleanliness

All fuels employed in the Aviation industry require the highest possible cleanliness value that allows the cleanest burn resulting in the least amount of solids emissions possible. Clean fuel also reduces premature wear of fuel system components.

Effective Filtration on the Suction Side of Pumps

March 2020 Use high strength permanent magnetic fields to remove Black Powder contamination, and there is no requirement for the use of screens or membranes (magnetic versions of cone, basket and wye-strainers are available). Clean magnetic separators show pressure differentials in the sub-0.5 psi range and are at 0 psi in most liquid applications. Contamination-loaded …
