Sulphate Removal Process (SRP) Membrane Protection
Injection of seawater is often necessary to maintain reservoir pressure and increase the recovery factor in oil production. Sulphate Removal Processes (SRP) are used on water for injection to prevent scaling of the formation caused by sulphates reacting with barium and strontium in the crude oil. Removal of the sulphates will also reduce the risk of reservoir souring. Nano membranes used in the SRP require effective prefiltration to avoid premature fouling and ensure long life for these systems. Amazon Filters Ltd have developed absolute rated SupaPleat HFC SRP cartridges specifically for the Sulphate Removal Process. Their use can maximise membrane life, reduce replacement costs and avoid unexpected interruptions to the process. SupaPleat HFC SRP multi-layered pleated depth filter elements are a further development of our already well proven absolute rated SupaPleat HFC filter.
