Aftermarket Filter Solutions

The history of Celeros Flow Technology’s filtration brands – Airpel, Dollinger, Plenty and Vokes – demonstrates why we can supply our customers today with innovative, world class filtration solutions – such as our unique Gas Filtration Test Rig that can analyse filtration performance without halting production.

1921 saw Dollinger develop the world’s first air intake filter for the automotive industry. Vokes was founded in the same year, and swiftly secured sole manufacturer status for air intake filters in Britain. The first Plenty filter appeared in the UK in 1965: today we export 75% of this market-leading brand of filters, mainly for oil & gas applications in the Middle East and North Sea. Airpel adds a range of single and dual filter solutions that include labour saving, self-cleaning options to minimize downtime in a host of applications, from oil & gas, power and water utilities to pharma and automotive.

3. Performance Upgrades

Process alterations can adversely affect the efficiency of filtration or lead to safety issues arising. Celeros Flow Technology offer both on-site and off-line testing to ensure optimum filtration performance over time. From the data gathered, detailed insight into the true process conditions and filter performance parameters can be derived. This enables us to propose the most suitable upgrade solution, so as to boost throughput and extend operational longevity.

Through use of our highly advanced Gas Filtration Test Rig, a multitude of different test activities can be carried out without interrupting production. These include:

  • Lean amine carbon bed testing
  • Gas sweetening and dehydration testing
  • Particulate sampling
  • Total liquid removal analysis
  • Dewpoint analysis
  • Gas sample analysis
  • Liquid loading

Other services include the repair, maintenance and overhauling of filter strainers to ensure required performance and safety criteria are met, as well as the upgrading of filtration equipment to accommodate increased throughput capacity.

Our team of dedicated process engineers and site technicians are ready to help customers with the challenges they face - providing support and recommending how significant performance enhancements could be realized.

5. Element Replacement Options

Celeros Flow Technology stocks replacement parts for its own brand and third party filtration equipment. We can offer element replacement options in relation to many installed filtration products within oil & gas processes. Through direct part substitution, we can raise efficiency levels, reduce downtime and increase end-product quality. These replacements will exactly match the originals in terms of fit, form and function. Particulate filtration, liquid filtration and coalescer equipment, plus depth and pleated constructions, are all available.

Addressing Operational Downtime Risks

Addressing Operational Downtime Risks

A vital aspect of being a trusted lifecycle partner to our customers is making certain that the equipment we provide remains in the best working condition. This means that our customers benefit from a lower overall cost of ownership.

Contamination, such as solid particulates or liquid aerosols, can impede the efficiency of plants and their compressors, so filtering is therefore mandated. Correct selection of filtration equipment is imperative, as this will mean that process gases can be kept contaminant free, with unwanted issues affecting process continuity being prevented.

Through engaging with Celeros Flow Technology and taking advantage of the technical support we can provide, trouble-free, long-term operation can be depended upon. The costs associated with downtime (while repair work is carried out or replacement parts are sourced) may also be avoided. By stocking parts in locations across the globe, demands for replacements can be dealt with quickly, with replacements being shipped with minimal turnaround time.

Improvement Solutions
Increased Energy Efficiency

Increased Energy Efficiency

Celeros Flow Technology’s filtration systems have been installed in many locations to improve the energy efficiency of customers’ processes. With the need to reduce carbon emissions, installing a correctly sized filter or strainer will reduce the pressure drop experienced. As well as saving energy, this will also reduce the frequency of filter cleaning and replacement activities. This means that ongoing operational costs are minimized.

Improvement Solutions
Ensuring Continuous Operation

Ensuring Continuous Operation

While filtration equipment is necessary to reduce contamination and protect downstream equipment, it should not become a source of unplanned outages. Celeros Flow Technology offers a combination of innovative product design features and tailored maintenance support to make sure your filtration system continues to operate without any issues.

Case study example:

Within one customer’s power plant, Airpel OW strainers have been installed to supply clean lubrication oil to the main turbines. Dual basket strainers were selected to allow the process to run continuously. Using data provided by a pressure sensor device, the operator is notified when high differential pressure levels indicate that the strainer requires attention. A simple manual lever/valve swaps the system to standby, allowing the strainer basket to be cleaned without any interruption to the process. The customer’s productivity has thereby been kept at the highest levels.

Improvement Solutions
Maintaining Pipeline Quality

Maintaining Pipeline Quality

Filtration systems make a massive difference to product quality by removing contaminants – whether from air intakes on compressors or during processing and refining activities. To prevent blockages or damage, it is important to make regular checks on filtration equipment to ensure it is performing as it should. This is particularly important if there has been a change in production, which may require the filtration equipment to be adapted or resized. Celeros Flow Technology brands provide customers with comprehensive support, from correct filtration selection and sizing to on-site analysis and full maintenance regimes.

Case study example:

Filters from our Dollinger brand were installed within a customer’s Amine treatment process to deal with the hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide present in natural gas. Amine liquid will often be contaminated throughout the process and these contaminants need to be filtered out accordingly. The system’s operational performance and its longevity have both been improved by filtration, and the risk of downtime issues occurring has been mitigated.
