TM Filtration & Gas Filtering Technology

From a previous posting on this site, you know that TM Filtration has developed a new Desander specifically designed to remove sand and particulates from new and capped gas wells before sending natural gas into the pipeline.


TM Filtration also builds a Horizontal Vane Separator, designed per API Specification 12J to remove particles and liquids

from a gasification process. 


New for 2017 is TM Filtration’s Gas Vane Dryer! Natural gas wells are often thought of as free flowing with no need for artificial lift. However, many gas wells produce some liquids–condensate, water or both–at some stage in their life cycles. If this liquid is not removed from the well, it will accumulate in the well bore, inhibit gas production and limit the ultimate recovery of gas from the reservoir. The accumulation of liquid in the well bore causes increased pressure against the producing gas formation (back pressure), which inhibits gas flow from the reservoir into the well bore. This back pressure also inhibits gas flow up the well bore to the surface. The liquid in the well bore also can enter the reservoir and cause a water blockage that will further inhibit gas flow into the well. Therefore, to maximize gas inflow and outflow, and to maximize ultimate recovery from the reservoir, it is necessary to remove any accumulated liquid from the well bore and keep it removed on a continuous basis.


TM Filtration has a model 356H (With a Posi-Sealoc II ® Closure) and a Model 355 with a bolted closure. Because this is a new technology, using no chemicals, and has four phases of mechanical separating technology built into the system, TM Filtration currently has a Patent Pending on this design. To make sure the natural gas is 99.99% cleaned, TM has incorporated GFM Technology ® into the final step in this new design. This new Gas Dryer Technology will remove 99.99% of all debris and remove 99.99% of all liquids greater than 0.3 Micron. This mechanical dryer can be furnished in all flange ratings up to ANSI class 900# and built in accordance with ASME section VIII Division 1, with a “U” stamp. Custom sizes and pressures available. The mechanical vanes portion are designed per the requirements of API 12J.

Why Use A Condensate Polisher?

Graver Water Systems GRF® Condensate Polishers are a proven solution for treating condensate for reuse as boiler feed water, and reduce the need for fresh makeup process water.  GRF® Polishers remove corrosion products such as iron, copper and other metal oxides as well as dissolved solids from the steam condensate, including hardness (calcium/magnesium) and other multi-valent cations resulting in efficient maintenance of boiler water quality.


Polishers are used widely before medium/high pressure industrial boilers to extend service life in steam generators and in various industrial processes. 


Pentad and Graver would be happy to discuss you or your customer’s steam cycle makeup or condensate cycle equipment needs. If a Lunch & Learn is of interest, please call!
