R100™ COALESCING FILTER

  • MORE UP TIME
  • FEWER FILTER PURCHASES
  • FEWER CHANGEOUTS
  • IMPROVED EFFICIENCY
  • LOWER OPERATING COSTS 

 

The R100™ is a slug catcher/particulate filter/coalescer - an all in one unit - it never bypasses and the filter elements last up to 25 times longer than the industry standard.

Shawndra Products™ Inc. revolutionized the industry with the introduction of the R100™ coalescing pipeline filter, addressing the prevalent issues of high maintenance and operation costs associated with competing alternatives. The R100™ filter stands out as a tailored solution, designed to minimize maintenance requirements, downtime, and element replacement expenses.

Unlike its competitors, the R100™ series filter harnesses the power of gravity. It allows liquid droplets to coalesce and seamlessly drain without interfering with individual elements. This ingenious design distinguishes itself from horizontal loading alternatives, which maintain a perpetually liquid environment within the vessel, leading to the risk of downstream re-entrainment.

The term "coalescing" encapsulates the filter's core principle: guiding droplets to merge, gradually form into larger droplets, and eventually descend to the element's bottom before efficiently draining away. With extended surface area vertical elements, the R100™ series filter has considerably extended the lifespan of its elements, achieving an impressive tenfold or more increase. What's more, servicing these filters is a breeze, requiring nothing more than a single 3/4" adjustable wrench and less than 1.5 hours of your time.

The R-Series™ filters, including the R100™, excel at eliminating solid particles and liquids from natural gas, significantly reducing or eliminating the need for servicing engines, turbines, compressors, valves, and meters. This superior filtration is achieved through a three-tiered approach: first, inertial impaction; second, gravitational settling; and third, a highly efficient, nearly vertical multi-stage coalescing filter element with effectiveness exceeding 99.99% for particles as small as 0.1 micron and above. Our filter media has undergone rigorous independent lab testing, using various oils as contaminants, and detailed lab data is available upon request.

Key Features:

  1. Exceptional Filter Life: The R100™ outperforms industry standards by up to 25 times, minimizing filter changeouts, reducing labor costs, and ensuring extended pipeline uptime. More uptime translates to increased revenue.

  2. Versatile Functionality: The R100™ is an all-in-one solution, serving as a slug catcher, coalescer for water and liquid mist, and a particulate filter down to 0.1 micron (compared to competitors ranging from 0.3 to 2 microns). This versatility ensures comprehensive filtration.

  3. No Bypass: The R100™ operates without bypass, ensuring the safety of your compressor or turbine equipment.

  4. Cost-Effective: Despite its advanced capabilities, the R100™ is competitively priced, often costing the same or less than conventional but less capable equipment.

  5. Proven Performance: Nearly 1,000 R100s™ are currently in service worldwide, with approvals from leading pipeline, extraction, and utility companies. Many industry experts consider it the best coalescing filter globally.

  6. Efficient Filtration: The R100™ employs a multistage filtration approach, including inertial impaction, gravitational settling, and vertical coalescing filter elements with efficiencies exceeding 99.99% for particles of 0.1 micron and above. Independent lab testing with various oils as contaminants confirms its superior performance.

  7. Minimal Maintenance: With its horizontal vessel and vertical coalescing filter elements, the R100™ reduces maintenance downtime and extends element life. Quick opening closures eliminate the need for compressors or impact tools, further reducing maintenance time.

  8. Environmental Benefits: The vertical design of R100™ filter elements not only extends their lifespan but also promotes environmental friendliness by reducing the need for frequent disposal and complying with evolving EPA regulations.

  9. Rapid Customization: Shawndra Products™ custom designs R100™ units to meet your exact requirements, with options for ancillary ports, orientation changes, and more. Quick turnaround times ensure optimized solutions in days, not months.

  10. Leasing Options: Flexible leasing options are available upon request, making it easier to integrate the R100™ into your pipeline application.
