Gasification Process Filters

Mott offers three types of hot gas and gasification filters as part of its comprehensive gas filtration system to remove solids from gas. 

The GSP (Gas Solids Plenum) process filters, a key component of our gas filtration system, offer traditional outside-in filtration of process gases and steam, for applications where cost-effectiveness and ease of use are high priorities. Upon reaching a given differential pressure or cycle time, the feed is discontinued and the backflow cycle is engaged. HyPulse® GSV (Gas Solids Venturi) process filters, another integral part of our gas filtration system, use inside-out filtration technology and are ideal for continuous filtration. 

Porous elements are pulsed in sections and cleaned while the unit remains on-line, ensuring efficient operation within the gas filtration system. Lastly, the GS (Trap Filter) process filter, designed for low solids loading and high flux rates, is a simple trap filter design that complements our versatile gas filtration system offerings.

Mott GSV filters are designed for clean-in-place performance, meaning filter elements can discharge cake build-up without having to open the filter for maintenance. Once cake builds on the surface of the media, the Mott GSV uses a gas-assisted pulse to clean the filter in sections without having to take it offline.

Particles will embed in the filter media over time, requiring the elements to be cleaned by a third-party company. Various cleaning techniques can be used to prolong life of the elements. For a recommendation of a cleaning company, please contact a Mott representative. It is recommended you have a spare set of filter elements to continue operations while elements are being cleaned.

The Mott Filter Design Process

    1. Filter Feasibility Testing – In our Customer Innovation Center, we will replicate, or very closely correlate, your process conditions to determine the appropriate media grade and material for your gas filtration system application. We will provide you with a comprehensive, in-depth analysis to prove the feasibility of using porous metal in your gas filtration process and furnish you with a comprehensive ROI justification.
    2. Pilot Testing – As an option, we can install a pilot unit in your facility enabling you to witness, first-hand, how our gas filtration system will perform in your process stream and under your actual operating temperatures and pressure conditions.
    3. Front-End Engineering Design – Our Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) process provides you with a complete process engineering package for your gas filtration system, including vessel drawings, a preliminary equipment layout drawing, piping and instrumentation diagram, process flow diagram, valve and instrument list, and a detailed process functional description.
    4. Fabrication – When it comes to fabricating your gas filtration system, we can handle as much or as little as you need – from fabricating only the filter vessel, to providing a complete turnkey skid system.
    5. Operational Support – When your gas filtration system is complete, our professionals can provide equipment commissioning and startup services, training, ongoing technical support, and quality assurance testing for the life of your system.

    Depending on your needs, Mott can provide just the filter elements, a vessel and elements, or provide you a full turnkey gas filtration system with the vessel, frame, piping, instruments, and controls.
