Self-Cleaning Water Filters for Refinery Applications
Fouling of pipes and heat exchanging surfaces lowers the thermal efficiency of the system. Fouling also increases the friction losses and induces erosion, corrosion and energy waste by increasing the demand for a higher flow rate. Other problems include the plugging of spray nozzles, blinding of sensors and analyzers, and the wearing down of pump gland seals, scrubbers, misters, membranes and ion exchanger columns. These issues cause unscheduled shutdowns for maintenance and cleaning and the loss of many production hours. Filtration helps solve these problems. The Tekleen self-cleaning water filters operate on line pressure alone. The self-cleaning process is triggered by a pressure differential and is accomplished in seconds without interrupting the main flow. The filters are compact in size and designed to meet a variety of industrial applications. ASME code stamp vessels are also available as an option.
