Design and Manufacture of Filters for The Crude Oil and Natural Gas Industries

A wealth of experience delivering filtration solutions to organisations involved in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas. Knowledge, innovation, superior performance.

End to End Design and Manufacturing

Pallman have embarked itself to become a renowned filtration brand in the global stage in the research, innovation, design, development, and manufacture of industrial filters for onshore and offshore applications. Stretching across both oil and gas upstream in exploration and production, midstream in oil and gas transportation, as well as downstream in refining and production processing. Pallman takes control of the filter manufacturing process end to end, to ensure the supply of premium quality filters and superior performance.

Cartridge Filters

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Cartridge filters consist of a cylindrical housing that contains a replaceable cartridge element. These filters are effective in removing solid particles, sediments, and other contaminants from crude oil and natural gas.

Bag Filters

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Bag filters are designed with a fabric bag or a mesh screen to capture solid particles and impurities. These filters are commonly used in the initial stages of the filtration process to remove larger particles.

Coalescing Filters

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Coalescing filters are used to separate and remove liquid droplets and aerosols from gases. They employ a combination of filtration and coalescence mechanisms to trap and merge small liquid particles into larger droplets, which can then be easily removed.

Separator Filters

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Separator filters are specifically used to separate water and hydrocarbon mixtures. They utilize various separation techniques, such as gravity settling, centrifugal force, or coalescence, to separate water from crude oil or natural gas.

Activated Carbon Filters

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Activated carbon filters are effective in removing organic compounds, odour-causing substances, and certain contaminants from crude oil or natural gas. These filters use activated carbon beds to adsorb and trap the impurities.

Automatic Backwashing Filters

Your Subtitle Goes Here
These filters are equipped with a self-cleaning mechanism that periodically reverses the flow to dislodge and remove accumulated contaminants. They are commonly used to filter large volumes of fluids in an automated and continuous manner.

Sand Filters

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Sand filters are designed to remove sand, sediments, and other solid particles from crude oil or natural gas. They use a bed of graded sand or other granular media to capture the contaminants.

Cyclone Separators

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Cyclone separators use centrifugal force to separate solid particles from gases or liquids. They create a vortex flow pattern, causing the heavier particles to move towards the outer wall and eventually settle out.

Magnetic Filters

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Magnetic filters are used to remove ferrous impurities from crude oil or natural gas. They utilize strong magnets to attract and capture magnetic particles, ensuring the purity of the fluid.

Reputation for Excellence

Filters manufactured by Pallman are designed to match and often exceed the Fit, Form, and Function standards recommended by the original equipment manufacturers. They deliver in oil and gas production environments that are often subject to pollutants such as dust, wear particles, emissions, which can have negative impacts on engine performance. A reputation has been earned for exceptional service in design and manufacture of industrial filters, that deliver maximum efficiency, reliability, whilst meeting stringent safety standards.
