Pentair TORUS®

Pentair TORUS®

The use of a toroidal inlet manifold allows uniform distribution of the inlet fluid in the vessel, maximizing even distribution of entrained contaminant across the filter elements for optimal filter element use and minimizing inhomogeneous flow distribution, turbulence or high local flow velocities. When coupled with the V-MAX element technology, the TORUS vessel provides significantly greater filtration capacity than a conventional bag filter device in a smaller vessel design.

NEX-SYS® Upgrades Vessel Re-Engineering Program

NEX-SYS® Upgrades Vessel Re-Engineering Program

Pentair’s Nex-Sys™ Vessel Re-Engineering Program allows us to adapt your existing filter vessel to utilize our high performance coreless element technologies. Each system is designed to address the specific operational and mechanical constraints of the facility.

Process Plants frequently encounter process upsets and other events that affect throughput and increase operating costs, thereby adversely affecting profitability. In many cases, these events are related to solid or liquid contaminants entering the unit in the liquid or gas streams. Once the causes of these process upsets or constraints are identified to pertain to the need for better separations, there is an immediate need for the separations equipment.

Pentair V-MAX®

Pentair V-MAX®

V-MAX® is a coreless filter that flows from the inside-to-outside like a bag filter but V MAX® technology can offer the same online life as a bag filter in a vessel that is roughly half the diameter. This is possible since the V-MAX® design offers up to ten times the available filtration media in the same element envelope.

Pentair Single UltiSep®

Pentair Single UltiSep®

The new series of the UltiSep family is designed with Compressor Packagers in mind. This new design offers packagers an improved option when it comes to their fuel gas needs. With this new Single UltiSep, end users are getting high performance filtration at a very competitive cost! The Single UltiSep series is designed to handle both particulates and liquids at high efficiencies, protecting compressor packages from failure due to feed contaminants.

Pentair Dualsep™

Pentair Dualsep™

Two efficient filter elements joined together on one core make up DualSep™. Compax®, a proven industry leader in particulate filtration with more surface area than its competitors and APEX®, the tapered coalescing element which keeps annular velocities constant across the entire height of the element. The annular space on the outside of APEX® gradually increases from the bottom to top of the element, keeping pace with the external gas flow as it exited the element.

Pentair InterSep

Pentair InterSep

The InterSep® high performance separation system is designed and manufactured to separate particulate contaminants from natural gas/vapor streams.

ProcessOR™ - Particle-Liquid Separations

ProcessOR™ - Particle-Liquid Separations

The ProcessOR® is a superior separator vessel often used for particle/liquid filtration or separation. It is available to be delivered as a self-contained skid (pictured) or a stand-alone vessel. It is also available custom sized as a capital sale or as a turn-key rental, which is often available within days of the received order.

UltiSep® - Solid Particle And Liquid Aerosol Separation

UltiSep® - Solid Particle And Liquid Aerosol Separation

UltiSep® technology was developed to address the inherent deficiencies of the conventional gas-liquid separators, making it possible to effectively remove liquid aerosols from gas streams. UltiSep® flows from the inside-to-the-outside, reducing the gas velocity as the droplets are being removed. The media technology is specifically designed to provide the desired level of separation and has the capability of providing effective separation from nano-levels to that approximating a demister pad.

LIQUISEP® Liquid-Liquid Separation Technology

LIQUISEP® Liquid-Liquid Separation Technology

LiquiSep® technology has been implemented specifically to help separate emulsions that are not separable by conventional coalescers. Conventional coalescers are unable to provide the degree clarity associated with LiquiSep® technology due to the inability to capture and remove the most penetrating droplets that cause carry-over. LIQUISEP® can separate these dispersed and emulsified droplets from the hydrocarbon to practically nondetectable levels. Advances in the technology now permit horizontal installations, further reducing capital cost. The effluent from a typical LiquiSep® separation consist of two separate phases. One phase is a clear product hydrocarbon stream, and the second phase is a clear product aqueous stream.

HRT™ Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology

HRT™ Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology

HRT® provides petroleum producers, refiners and gas processors dramatically improved solids control and hydrocarbon recovery from process water streams.

POLAREX® Extractive Separations Technology

POLAREX® Extractive Separations Technology

Hydrocarbon Streams are contaminated by soluble polar (or ionic) contamination in a variety of ways (viz., caustic treatment, amine treatment, acid catalysts etc). The contaminant typically exists within the hydrocarbon phase in a soluble form, and in some cases it may not even be ionized within the non-polar hydrocarbon. Nevertheless, it is generally necessary to remove these contaminants. In some cases, the contaminants may poison downstream process equipment; or example, diesel fired turbines are sensitive to alkali metal contaminants; selective hydrogenation units (SHU) are sensitive to sodium). In other cases, these soluble contaminants represent an ongoing operating cost (i.e., amine dissolved in a C3/C4 stream needs to be made up with fresh (expensive) amine).
