We use a hydrocarbon liquid filtration system that has a 10 mircon pore size, which traps precipitated Asphaltenes particles in produced condensate. The filter changing frequency now is around once a day -- it used to be once a month. Is there any system available that can extend the life of our system or filters that can be reused? The system operates at 63 barg and 45-50 degrees C.
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: How can we extend the life of our filtration system?23 February 2012 at 1:29pmThere is not enough information to make a valid judgment. My only recommendations would be to increase pore size for greater life if filtrate quality remains acceptable; and to increase area by increasing the size of the filters. Obviously, if the change frequency has increased the dirt load has increased so one can also look upstream as to what has changed.
