Oil Refinery Applications of PRISM Membrane Systems

Prism Membrane Systems are used in Oil Refineries in the following applications:

  1. Hydrogen recovery from purge gas
  2. Inert rejection from recycle loops
  3. Fine tuning hydrogen cascades
  4. SMR debottlenecking

Benefits & Details of using Prism Membrane Systems in Oil Refineries:

  • 95+ % recovery available
  • Minimal operator attention
  • Easily adaptable to different feed streams
  • Up to 98% purity available
  • Low maintenance
  • Skid mounted systems are quick, easy and inexpensive to install
  • Accommodates 20% variations in feed flow
  • Virtually unlimited turndown
  • System Customization
  • Smooth, surge-free output
  • Tolerates Water, normal levels of hydrocarbons and aromatics, H2S, CO2
    and NH3
  • Fast delivery

PA4050 Membrane Performance

We’ve experienced an increase in requests for our particular PA4050-N1 membrane recently. This is our most commonly used membrane product and for your convenience, we posted the performance tables and data sheet below. This data table publishes the minimum guaranteed performance for our PA4050-N1, so it’s typical that the membranes received are even higher performing.

Customized Membrane Manufacturing

variety of Membranes2We provide the widest product range of membrane separators on the market, but sometimes there are still specific applications that require something different. Your membrane application might be restricted by physical dimensions, or shell materials… but don’t worry, we can manufacture customized membrane products. We’ve done this many times for the transportation industry when weight limits or government regulations required specific membrane product changes. Just tell us what you need!
