Raw natural gas is readily available however this form of gas cannot be used for cooking or industrial applications. To make it usable you need to separate the raw form of gas from the solid and liquid contaminants. The different types of contaminants may include water vapor, chemical, iron oxide, iron sulfide and acid gas (hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide). If these contaminants are not removed using the filtration process, it will result in damaging the processing equipment, corroding the distribution equipment and foaming.
The natural gas filtration process helps in removing the impurities in order to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of the resources. It helps in attaining the highest quality final products that are contaminant-free and very effective.
The raw gas needs to be purified to meet the quality standards that are set by specific pipeline transmission companies. The standards may differ from pipeline to pipeline. They usually constitute of a complete function of pipeline system design and the market that it serves.
