Seawater Injection Filters

Traditionally, cartridge filters have been used for seawater injection providing protection down to 5 microns to protect the seawater injection pumps and the reservoir. The operating cost associated with replacement filter cartridges, combined with the size and weight of cartridge filter vessels made this a very expensive process.

Tech Trade were approached by a major Norwegian operator which had significant problems with their seawater injection filters. High levels of solids resulted in continuous changing out of replaceable filters a very high operating costs. By introducing a compact high performance 10 micron automatic backwash filter package, the customer immediately eliminated the need for replacement filter elements and its associated manual labour and product waste.

The equipment was delivered on time within a fast track 6-week delivery schedule. Customer feedback was excellent after more than a year of continuous operation.
