Many problems in a glycol dehydration plant such as foaming, reboiler and exchanger fouling, tray plugging and pump failures can be traced to an excessive amount of liquid and solid contaminants present in the process stream. The presence of high levels of particulates can result in reboiler tube failure, tray plugging in the contactor and the regenerator, exchanger failures and frequent pump seal replacements. Recognising that process conditions may vary widely, we supply both nylon and polypropylene media filters to ensure the optimum filter can be chosen. Typical products used are VisClear, SupaGardSupaSpun II and Contour. These are available in a range of removal ratings so the choice of filter can be tailored to the size of contaminating particles.
