High Temperature Feed Filter Cartridges

High Temperature Feed Filter Cartridges

Jonell Systems High Temperature (HT) cartridges have been designed to filter solid particulates down to 0.5 microns from gas oil and other high temperature hydrocarbon feed streams with a maximum continuous temperature of 425 deg F in refinery applications. Higher temperature cartridges are available based on application requirements.

The refining industry is moving towards finer filtration to:

  • Protect process equipment,
  • Reduce costly maintenance, such as the replacement of catalysts, 
  • Help achieve new environmental regulations and
  • Mitigate maintenance issues by removing solid and semi-solid contaminants.

High Temperature Feed Filter Cartridge Technology Advantage

High temperature feed filter cartridges can be used to upgrade from other filter technologies such as string-wound elements and strainer systems. Filter cartridges help mitigate issues with decreased performance over time, as well as cleaning issues related to other technologies such as pleated metal filters or backwashable systems.

Jonell Systems High Temperature Cartridge FiltersString Wound ElementsPleated Metal Filters
Efficiency High Temperature Feed Filter cartridges offer better performance and higher efficiencies than alternate technologies such as string wound elements. Low surface area leading to low efficiency, frequent change outs and safety concerns Efficiency drops over time and filters need to be cleaned
Maintenance Solutions to filter finer contaminants at lower micron ratings and higher temperatures.

Replaced based on dP.
Elements unbind causing contamination.

Can be difficult to change out.
Need to be cleaned out using harsh chemicals causing downtime

Key Applications

PRE-FILTRATION:

Improve performance of backwashable filters installed in delayed cokers or in hydroprocessing units.

Pre-filtration installed before the backwash filters improve the performance of these multimillion dollar systems which are costly to clean and struggle with semi-solid contaminants in the feed.

CATALYST BED PROTECTION:

Reduce the frequency of catalyst change out by improving feed quality going into Hydrotreater, CAT Cracker, CAT Reforming, Hydrocrackers.


It can also be used in VIS Breaker and BTX units.

Available in a wide range of cartridge sizes from small diameter (2.5” OD) to large diameter (6+” OD) to retrofit in existing vessels or fit new vessels designed for the application including high flows.
