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.

Then, we draw on over three decades of experience, best-in-class resources and technology to develop a solution that best suits your needs.
With 35+ years’ experience in innovative filtration technology, we design and manufacture advanced filtration solutions for a variety of refining applications.
Aromatic fractionation or BTX extraction involves removing contaminants from extraction solvents like sulfolane.
A key concern in this application is safety of the employees and prevention of exposure to hot toxic substance. Solid particulates cause foaming, resulting in reduced process flow and the injection of costly foaming inhibitors to regain control. Fouling also occurs from excessive particulate concentrations which reduces operating efficiencies in distillation and recovery towers, heat exchangers, and other downstream equipment.
Delayed coking involves removal of coke fines and solid contaminants from the process feed. High solids loading including semi solids makes this a challenging application. The contaminants need to be removed to protect downstream catalyst beds and process equipment such as heat exchangers and feed furnaces.
Jonell Systems has a wide range of Liquid Filtration solutions for delayed coking including Backwashable ProGuard Series filter systems, Horizontal High flow vessels with either the LiquiPleat JHT or the JHF series and Fabricated K Series strainers.
As the hydrocracking takes place, sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen are removed, and olefins are saturated changing the feed to lighter products. A big challenge for customers is maintaining the run life on catalyst beds at minimal cost. This application requires particulate contaminant removal from the hydrocracker feed to protect the catalyst bed in the reactors.
Jonell Systems recommends pre-filtration using Horizontal High flow vessels with LiquiPleat JHT or JHF Series cartridges along with Backwashable ProGuard Series filter systems to protect the catalyst bed and reactor.
As the hydrotreating takes place, sulfur and nitrogen are removed. It is important to remove particulate from the hydrotreater feed to protect the catalyst bed in the reactors and maintain the run life on catalyst beds at minimal cost.
Jonell Systems recommends pre-filtration using Horizontal High flow vessels with LiquiPleat JHT or JHF Series Liquid filter cartridges along with Backwashable ProGuard Series filter systems to protect the catalyst bed and reactor.
Particulate and liquid contaminants need to be removed from the natural gas stream to protect the burner tips. Failure to remove contaminants causes burner tip fouling and off spec emissions which can lead to fines for plants.
To produce renewable biodiesel from animal fat, it is important to pre-filter the tallow feedstock to remove particulate from the liquid prior to the feedstock entering the hydrotreater. This is a highly temperature sensitive process with very high solids removal.
Jonell Systems recommends basket strainers, high flow vessels with pleated bags, pressure leaf filters for solids removal followed by high flow vessels with high flow cartridge-based filters for finer particulate removal and polishing.
This application involves removing particulate and liquid contaminants from the incoming tail gas feed and removing amine carry over from the outgoing sweet gas. Further, particulate and hydrocarbons need to be filtered from the amine process stream.
The challenge is the variable contaminant loading of the sour tail gas coming into the plant which can cause upsets in the amine system.
Jonell Systems has filtration solutions to address all the gas and liquid filtration needs of this application. We recommend a Gas Separator or scrubber for particulate removal followed by a gas coalesce with TRI-SHiELD media filter cartridges and Liquid particulate filter with LiquidPleat JHF/JHFO filter cartridges and a carbon vessel to protect the amine.
