2:15 PM Maximizing Operational Performance & Improving Safety: Addressing Contamination Issues

Particulate contamination, such as black powder contamination, in hydrocarbon systems significantly increases operating expenses, causes facility downtime, increases equipment expenditures, lowers product quality and needlessly increases the environmental footprint and number of touch points. Instead, by ‘getting to know your contamination’ and recognizing there are alternatives, you can increase spending efficiencies, uptime, safety and significantly reduce your waste • We’ll talk about some of the impacts of contamination in hydrocarbon systems and talk about how to look at that contamination differently • Recognizing the status quo and “ignorance is bliss” are not best practices, we’ll talk about some lessons learned and how it can be done better, as well as some conventional filtration biases • Finally, we will review a technology alternative using magnetic separation and talk through some interesting examples
