Natural Gas Filters for reliability in the removal of solid particulates from dry natural gas
The Winston/Royal Guard Type 65 Dry Natural Gas Filters efficiently remove rust, pipeline scale and dust from dry natural gas streams. The filter is generally offered in a horizontal configuration for better control of settled dust particles when changing out the filter cartridges. Filter cartridges can be fiberglass depth type or pleated for longer operation between change-outs.
How the natural gas filter works: The gas entering the vessel flows into the filter cartridges from outside-to-inside, ensuring that the gas stream encounters the most surface area for the greatest contaminant holding capability. The depth type fiberglass filter cartridge is the most economical and does an excellent job of capturing solids. The pleated filter cartridge, in either polypropylene or polyester, is the best choice for expected high solids loading and has a very low clean pressure drop.
Fiberglass filter cartridges are available in 0.3, 0.5, 1, and 5 nominal micron ratings for 99.9% particle removal.
Optionally, pleated dry gas filter cartridges with either 99.9% efficiency (beta 1000) or 99.98% efficiency (beta 5000) are available with a 1 micron rating. With a pleated design, these filter cartridges offer a longer service life between cartridge change-outs resulting in lower maintenance cost and reduction in lost gas revenues.
