Torrential High-Flow Filtration | SLB


High-flow filtration unit


Facilitate completions, gravel-pack, workover, and reclamation fluids filtration applications

The Torrential high-flow filtration unit is a compact, stacked diatomaceous earth (DE) filtration system for deepwater and ultradeepwater high-rate filtration applications.

The unit comprises two modular stacks:

  • The upper stack, consisting of a slurry tank and a dual-vessel polishing unit, enables process-flow-control automation. With only minimal manual intervention required, this is a first for filtration in flow-control automation and activation.
  • The lower stack consists of an air-over-hydraulics filter press with full system redundancies. To guarantee systems integrity, the hydraulic system contains an emergency manual backup as a standard feature.
