Pentair will showcase its Oil & Gas Separations technologies with its APEX and APEX+ (APEX plus) high performance products as an exhibitor at the Gas Processors Association (GPA) Conference in New Orleans, April 10 – 13, 2016. The GPA Convention brings together more than 2,000 professionals involved in natural gas gathering, compression, treating, processing, storage and marketing, and natural gas liquids fractionation, transportation, storage and marketing, all with the common interest of meeting about – and making a difference in – midstream matters.
Pentair designs and manufactures high performance separation products and systems for the capture of particulate, liquid, and soluble contaminants from liquid and gas streams. The original UltiSep Separator technology was developed more than twenty-five years ago to address the inherent deficiencies of conventional gas-liquid separators, proving that it was possible to more effectively remove liquids and aerosols from gas streams. A culture of continued innovation and engineering lead to the development of Apex element technology inside of the UltiSep. Apex made it possible to further increase separator performance, with efficiencies that could exceed 99.97 percent. APEX+ has been developed to further optimize these advanced separation technologies: interception of sub-micron aerosols; coalescence into larger and larger liquid droplets; and mass transfer of the captured liquids out of the gas stream.
