Overview - Ultrafiltrex Pipeline Filtration

Solving Problems Caused By Black Powder And Pipeline Rust

Ultrafiltrex uses the latest magnetic technology to solve problems created by pipeline rust or black powder, which forms when iron in the pipeline wall reacts with other compounds to form corrosion. 

Ferrous contamination in the pipeline quickly blocks conventional porous filters such as cartridges, strainers, basket filters or cones. This leads to excessive costs of replacing consumables, downtime and specialist waste disposal.

In addition, conventional filtration is limited by particle size collection which means that fine particles continue to flow causing abrasive damage to components and valves leading to replacement costs and flow restrictions.

Ultrafiltrex combines high performance magnetics with optimum flow dynamics to capture virtually 100% of ferrous contamination in the pipeline. It delivers a rapid return on investment by ensuring a cleaner end product and significantly reducing consumable filter costs, complex waste disposal charges and downtime.
