two Dutch Filtration filter units

Dutch Filtration specialises in the design and in-house manufacturing of filter equipment and consumables for oilfield and oil and gas applications.

The company offers a range of design and implementation services, providing filter systems for the clean-up and removal of completion and workover fluids, wastewater and slopwater as well as well stimulation and acid flow-back residue.

We also supply solutions related to well testing, produced-water treatment, pipeline flushing and cooling-water intake. Our products are carefully designed to meet the highest Health and Safety Environmental standards.

Oilfield filtration services for effective contamination prevention

Oilfield brine filtration is used to prevent contamination of the formation site, and prolong the serviceability of down-hole tools prone to deterioration.

The DFC24 dual vessel cartridge filters are designed with Dutch Filtration’s decades of oilfield equipment engineering. The units have been painstakingly constructed to meet the latest HSE regulations, with extra attention to detail also applied to improving efficiency and reliability.
The 1,200² filter press is powered by a heavy-duty hydraulic system, and features a drip-free construction designed to facilitate easy, environmentally-friendly filtration.
Vertical pressure leaf (VPL) units are equipped with powerful air-driven precoat and body feed pumps to ensure safe, high-flow filtration for even the most hazardous substances and harshest environments.
Dutch Filtration’s enthusiastic and experienced team of engineers and sales professionals are committed to providing clients with high-quality filtration and clean-up solutions.
Absolute pleated filter cartridges are thermally fused, and achieve high flow rates over an increased surface area to deliver rigorous, highly accurate filtration to match harsh and demanding requirements of the oil industry.
Dutch Filtration’s DNW-series nominal string wound cartridges are highly versatile, and allow for deep, multi-layered filtration and dirt-holding capacity thanks to their high flow capacity design.
An automatic, self-cleaning liquid filtration unit; one of many models designed and built in-house by Dutch Filtration engineers. This unit is skid-mounted for ease of transport and installation.
A three-inch strainer unit, 30-bar working pressure, fitted with a Rudi QOC-1 model opening-closure system in order to ensures speedy, leak-free strainer basket replacement processes.
Dutch Filtration’s dual vessel filters make use of the pioneering Rudi rapid opening-closure system, which allows the lid to open in a matter of seconds, and is also suitable for two-handed operation for increased safety and security.
All filtration equipment is fabricated in our new workshop in The Netherlands. All DNV2.7-1 frames are calculated, welded and tested in-house. Our welders are certified to weld carbon steel, Stainless steel 316, Duplex and Super Duplex materials.

During long-term operations, dirt and debris particles can build-up in the formation and form a plug-like seal, which reduces efficiency of oil and gas production, and risks shortening the lifetime of the producing well.

This harmful process has also been known to occur during clean-up operations, as well as perforating, fracturing and workover, acidising, water injection and even gravel packing. In fact, any time fluid is introduced into a well bore with a solid content there is a chance of damaging the formation, no matter how brief the exposure time or seemingly insignificant the amount.

Dutch Filtration has more than 20 years’ experience in dealing with such contamination scenarios, and remains committed to providing the equipment and filter consumables you need to make the filtration process as hassle-free as possible.

There’s never been a better time to partner with Dutch Filtration, as our range of efficient and innovative equipment has recently been re-launched with an advanced line of all-new products, including a 600ft²-1,500ft² filter press and 400ft²-1,600ft² vertical pressure leaf (VPL).

Other original products now on offer are our dual vessel cartridge filter unit, dual vessel bag filter unit , dual combination bag/cartridge filter unit,, diesel and electric-driven centrifugal pump skids, mixing slurry skids (available in dual, single and stackable versions), polymer shearing devices and absolute pleated and nominal-rated wound filter unit cartridges. We are also able to supply a number of high-quality hoses, hose baskets and DE-media.

Reservoir water injection to stimulate oil and gas production

Water-flooding, or injection, is the term given to the process of manually pumping liquid into the reservoir, a procedure to increase environmental pressure and stimulate production.

Filtration is required during water-flooding activities to carefully control, and ultimately maximize, the flow of solid-free and deaerated water into the formation.

Dutch Filtration design purpose-built systems to serve a number of water sources, including sea and river water, as well as produced and aquifer varieties.

Our robust line of products for water injection processes features coarse automatic self-cleaning filters, in addition to high-pressure well-head, multi-media and fine filtration cartridge filters, as well as manual strainers.

Powerful wastewater disposal for drilling sites, both on and offshore

Dutch Filtration’s simple and effective solutions for wastewater treatment can be easily applied at drilling and production sites, both on land and offshore.

Our powerful equipment, with or without filter consumables, will treat large volumes of water contaminated with (emulsified) oil and solids, down to discharge levels of less than 5ppm if required.

We provide an all-encompassing catalogue of machinery for wastewater disposal purposes, ranging from dual-vessel filter units, hydro cyclones and flotation devices, to filter presses, VPLs, oil absorption cartridges and other related media.

Dual-pod filter for safe and efficient fluid filtration

Our new Dual Vessel Cartridge Filter Unit has been developed from decades of experience in manufacturing oilfield equipment and customer feedback in mind.

The dual-pod filter (or twin vessel) is especially designed for the safe, efficient and effortless filtration of oilfield fluids.

Our unit has unique features, such as Rudi Quick Opening Closure, a safety railing constructed to Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU) specifications, as well as easy accessible manifold and more. The filter unit is designed and built in accordance with DNV 2.7-1 standards and is certified by DNV.

Our standard DFC24 has two vessels (PED MOD A for all type of fluids), both of which are equipped with 50 cartridges and six valves for parallel, in-series and by-pass operation. All wetted parts are marine-grade SAE 316 stainless steel.

Rapid opening-closures for oilfield industry operations

Dutch Filtration has devised a unique and robust quick opening-closure for all its cartridge and bag filter housing specifically to address the needs and requirements of the oilfield industry.

The pressure vessel closure system is designed for swift, safe, ergonomic and leak free-change out of filter cartridges or bags.

Our Rudi QOC has many benefits over the traditional swing-bolt closures such as the lack of loose parts, a two-hand safe operation, and a lid that opens in just a few seconds.

The Rudi QOC is rapid, reliable and easy to use, as well as being 100% sealing and requiring no tools for application.
