Benefits of Jonell Systems Filtration Solutions

Maximize refining efficiency and performance

Fluid streams that are free of contaminants will help achieve more efficient reactions for a higher quality end-product and minimal product waste. Jonell Systems’ advanced filtration solutions are engineered to maximize contaminant removal for a truly streamlined operation. They remove contaminants from feed streams and fluid recirculation processes to improve refining efficiency.

Improve availability and reliability of operations

A custom-designed filtration system can seriously impact the availability and reliability of operations. Our advanced filtration solutions are designed to meet the most demanding petroleum applications, while reducing the frequency of filter maintenance activities. The result is better availability and reliability of operations, with lower operating costs. Filter elements are available in a wide variety of materials including: polyester, polypropylene, cotton, nylon, Teflon®, Nomex®, metals, micro-fiberglass, resin-bonded cellulose, and more.

Extend the life of capital equipment

Whether in alkylation, feedstock filtration, caustic treatment or other refining processes, contaminants can cause long-term damage to equipment with expensive repercussions. Our filtration solutions are designed to maximize contaminant capture to reduce the risk of equipment failure and ultimately extend the life of equipment. They prevent contaminants from damaging equipment further downstream and eliminate the costs of unscheduled maintenance and operational downtime.

Engineered to meet your rigorous plant requirements.

Properly designed and implemented filtration equipment is paramount for the protection of your critical processes. That’s why we take the time to understand your challenges and unique application needs. Then, we draw on over three decades of experience, best-in-class resources and technology to develop a solution that best suits your needs.

Refinery Filtration Applications

With 35+ years’ experience in innovative filtration technology, we design and manufacture advanced filtration solutions for a variety of refining applications.

  • Catalyst Protection – Stop water and solid particulates from deactivating catalyst beds and plug stream nozzles, which reduces reactor efficiency.
  • Amine Sweetening & Tail Gas Treating Units – Liquid hydrocarbons and particulates from the amine system can cause contactor fouling and foaming.
  • Final Products Filtration – Stop contaminants, such as rust, scales, solids, and suspended water, from damaging equipment and lowering product specifications.
  • Glycol Contactor Protection – Prevent hydrocarbons or amine aerosols and solids from contaminating the glycol system, which can result in foaming, solvent losses, and off-specification gas.
  • Compressor Protection – Prevent condensable hydrocarbons, water and solids from reducing the viscosity of lube oil and damage pistons due to increased friction.
  • Molecular Sieve Drier Protection – Increase cycle time between regeneration of the molecular sieve drier and extend the bed life.
  • Refinery Fuel Gas – Protect burners and combustors from liquids and solids which cause fouling and plugging. Low NOx burners are very sensitive to plugging.
  • Condensate Dewatering – Provide hydrocarbon condensate with low water content to avoid corrosion problems in export pipelines and prevent off-specification final product.
  • Stabilization Plant Protection – Prevent free water and solids from entering the fractionation column, which could result in corrosion and salts and solids deposits.
  • Rich Amine Treatment – Improve the reliability of the amine regenerator by removing liquid hydrocarbons and solids.
  • Amine and Sulfur Recovery – Prevent carryover amine from contaminating catalyst at the sulfur recovery unit, and carry over hydrocarbons and treating chemicals from causing foaming in amine contactors.
