Design and manufacturing

3D CAD design

Precision 3D CAD design

Hydro-Carbon Filtration & Separation offers filter and separator solutions for your specific needs by designing systems and pressure vessels based on more than 30 years of experience in the oil and gas market. Pressure vessels are designed to operate safely at a specific pressure and temperature, technically referred to as the “Design Pressure” and “Design Temperature”. A vessel that is inadequately designed to handle a high pressure constitutes a very significant safety hazard. Because of that, the design and certification of pressure vessels is governed by design codes such as the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code in North America, the Pressure Equipment Directive of the EU (PED), Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS), CSA B51 in Canada, AS1210 in Australia and other international standards like Lloyd’s, Germanischer Lloyd, Det Norske Veritas, Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS S.A.), Stoomwezen, etc.

Not only pressure vessels as sole operated filter or separator, but also complete prefab rated skids including pumps, piping, valves, instrumentation, etc., are part of our delivery program.
