About the Project:

The polymer manufacturer had instigated a project to increase the Ethane Vapourisation Capacity and recognised the need to remove traces of rust and hard deposits from the ethane vapour stream once it had passed through the new heat exchanger.

Controlling these contaminants is vital to ensure optimum performance of the polypropylene production operation. The filter was to be installed as a Propylene Refrigerant Sub Cooler Guard Filter and located downstream of the new Ethylene Refrigeration Desuperheater.

Amazon Filters reviewed the critical process requirements e.g. flow rate, level of filtration required etc. and selected a system involving a special 89 Series housing and a DuoMesh stainless steel basket.
