The Black Powder Separator (BPS) System is designed to remove Black Powder contamination from gas and hydrocarbon fluid lines to sub-micron levels with minimal flow restriction. This technology offers a full inline system approach which is custom designed to specific applications.
*Specialty alloys available for corrosive applications.
Black Powder is an industry name for the abrasive, reactive contamination particulate present in all gas and hydrocarbon fluid transmission lines. Black Powder will range from light brown to black and the mineral make up will vary per production field around the world.
BPS offers manual, semi-automated and fully automated cleaning designs to adapt to application requirements.
The manual cleaning system is designed for smaller applications. The user removes the Magnetic Separators from the vessel and installs them in the cleaning station. The Magnetic Separators are lifted through the scrapers allowing the contaminants to be collected in the containment bag. BPS recommends an analysis of the contaminant.
Black Powder Solution’s mobile units are designed for field applications. Portable modules of Magnetic Separators are arranged in tandem in a containment cage, and sized to match the pipeline. During pigging, large amounts of Black Powder contamination is dislodged in the pipeline. The BPS portable units are designed to be placed before the compression station after pigging, replacing traditional filtration.
