Eclipse Magnetics Delivers Innovative Magnetic Filtration Technology For A Gas Receiving Station Application

gas receiving stationEclipse Magnetics Oil and Gas Division have designed and delivered a bespoke Magnetic Separator to an International Operating Company for use within a Gas Pipeline Pig Receiver in Tunisia. The in-line Separator is designed to remove ferrous contaminant, often referred to as Black Powder, from the natural gas transmission line before it reaches downstream equipment within the Process Plant.

The Magnetic Separator has the capability to capture ferrous particles down to sub-micron level, which will not only provide a cleaner Product, but will greatly reduce the loading on downstream cartridge filters. This results in a significant increase in the life of the cartridges, meaning a much lower operating cost of consumables, and substantially longer intervals between change-outs, and the downtime involved.

Unlike cartridge filters, there are no consumables involved with Magnets. They never lose their strength, and because they are encased in a stainless-steel tube, the captured ferrous material can be easily removed by simply wiping the tubes clean.

The Eclipse design team’s fast and innovative approach to this challenge ensured we met all the criteria. We hope that other pipeline operators will take note of the cost saving and environmental benefits that can be gained from using our proven Magnetic Separator technology to remove ferrous contaminant from process piping systems.”

Eclipse also supply their Ultrafiltrex range of “stand alone” Magnetic Separators, which have been specifically designed for Black Powder applications in the Oil, Gas, Petrochemical, and Aviation industries. Suitable for use in upstream, midstream, and downstream locations, Ultrafiltrex ensures a cleaner, higher performance end product. By negating the need for expensive consumables, the technology also helps to reduce the environmental impact and costs for specialist disposal of contaminated filters. Greatly reduced operating costs ensures a rapid return on investment.

"We were delighted with the service provided by Eclipse Magnetics; from the initial site survey through to delivery."

Adrian Seeley, Production Supervisor at AB MAURI UK & Ireland

"I cannot begin to tell you how much it has helped our operation, the magnetic filtration unit has been a real problem solver it has surpassed all our expectations. Its cured a 30 year plague!"

Maintenance Manager at EXL Tube (Steel Ventures)

"This technology is economical, reliable and efficient. I believe that magnetic filtration technology is the future."

John Smith, MMTCI

"Magnetic filtration has dramatically cleaned up our fluids and improved the surface finish we can offer. It extracts around 50Kg per day of ferrous waste."

Facilities Manager, Milacron Machines (Sub-Contract Machining)

"We chose Eclipse Magnetics to supply our housed grid because they are a respected and well-established brand. They offered us a very competitive price, and the process of ordering and installation was straightforward and reliable."

Pat Richards, Chief Engineer at Simpsons Malt

“We are delighted with the Automag installation; it’s solved all the problems we were having previously with downtime and maintenance costs. The filter means that we are able to use recycled water, which is saving us £1000 per week!”

Kenneth McRae, Principle Engineer at Vallourec

"Here at Qualflow, we base our business on a philosophy of make the product simple to use, reliable and cost-effective. Eclipse Magnetics’ neodymium magnets offer the strongest magnetic performance, and are nickel plated, making them a cost effective.."

Justin Lawler Ph.D. MBA, Chief Technology Officer at Qualflow Systems Ltd

"The Ultralift Plus magnetic lifter from Eclipse Magnetics is the perfect solution for the pick-up and transportation of the ultrasonic calibration blocks in our facility"

John Crossley, NDT Technology Lead at the Nuclear AMRC

"The result is an aesthetically pleasing system, which is effective in trapping metal contaminants and is easy to clean..."
