Pentair’s Gas Separation Technology Provides Clean Fuel Gas, Protecting Compressors


CONROE, TEXAS – August 12, 2014 – Pentair’s gas separations technologies, UltiSep and InterSep for gas/liquid and gas/particle separations respectively, are being installed into a Colorado booster compression station.


Booster compressor stations take gas from a gathering system, boosts the pressure to send it to a plant for processing, and usually dehydrates the gas with TEG dehydration.  In this case the booster station will take gas from 100 psig and compress it to 400 psig, and dehydrate the gas on the discharge side of the gas turbine compressor.

UltiSep provides clean fuel gas for compression and TEG dehydration that has had particulate and free liquid contaminants removed.  InterSep protects the compressor from wear/damage by removing particles and free liquid from the gas. 

 “It’s important to our clients to protect their products and processes. Because of that we work diligently in our STAR labs to ensure that our technologies accomplish their critical separation needs”, said Gene Rudolph, Vice President, Pentair Filtration & Process – Oil & Gas Separations.
