Engineering Services

Filtration Experts offers a range of specialized engineering services to assist clients with amine treating systems in selecting new filtration/separation systems or modifying and/or upgrading existing systems. Our experts use their knowledge of amine system process requirements, coupled with their industry expertise to design or recommend a system that will meet client needs. This expertise includes the assessment of technical, economic, operational and maintenance factors to ensure an optimum solution.

Our engineering services also consider the increasing need to minimize water use, conserve energy and improve solvent recovery. We employ a variety of proprietary simulation programs to assess vessel size, diameter and flows in addition to annual and life cycle operating costs.

Engineering Design Verifications

Filtration Experts can conduct an independent review of amine-based filtration and separation system design; including its application, technical assessment of separation/filtration components and review of vessel design drawings. This cost-effective input can help optimize system design at an early stage to minimize the risk of major operational issues down the road.

System Re-engineering

Filtration Experts’ scientists and engineers can assist with the re-design of existing amine filtration/separation system to optimize performance. We use a combination of our analytical expertise and operations knowledge to diagnose issues and recommend practical solutions. We can also apply this knowledge to recommend design modifications to improve system performance. 

New Vessel Engineering, Design and Data Sheets

Filtration Experts has the experience to help design effective filtration/separation systems for amine plants. Vessel Design and integration is critical for separation performance. The design of each separation vessel needs to be evaluated independently for each application considering technical, economic, operational and environmental parameters.

We use our experience to design the best system for the required separation efficiency giving consideration to both capital and operating cost. We can provide a preliminary design, including vessel sizing, internal design, filter recommendations and data sheets to ensure your bid package is complete.

Modeling - Separator Sizing and Cost

Modeling is an integral part of the service Filtration Experts provides. We employ a variety of proprietary models to optimize vessel size, internal arrangements and media costs. This is a complex task that considers many factors to ensure realistic results. Modeling programs are also used to estimate the operational cost for each separation point. Specially developed algorithms allow Filtration Experts to calculate the clean differential pressure for each system which is used to estimate “on-line life” for each separation and filtration system.
