High Performance Solutions To Pipeline Corrosion

Black powder is the common name for a ferrous based contamination which typically forms in gas, oil and petrochemical pipelines. 

Present in all downstream, midstream and upstream locations, it costs the energy sector many millions of dollars each year. 

An Economical and Efficient Method to Increase Productivity & Minimise Downtime

Investing in Ultrafiltrex helps to combat the problem of black powder, helping you to avoid financial, operational and environmental costs such as:

Pipeline Efficiency

Black powder formation reduces the usable diameter of the pipeline, reducing flow. This reduces the efficiency of pipelines, impacting productivity.

Financial Impact

Removal of black powder from pipelines requires an expensive cleaning or scraping process. This has a financial cost, as well as requiring downtime, resulting in lost production time.

Abrasive Damage

Black powder causes abrasive damage to critical rotating equipment such as compressors and pumps, resulting in costly repairs, replacement costs, downtime and lost production.

Environmental Costs

Traditional barrier or cartridge filters require regular replacement, resulting in high OPEX from waste disposal costs, which require specialist equipment and procedures.
