I am on a natural gas well with a few other people. The gas needs filtered to run with todays type of furnaces etc. The old warm morning heating stoves with the cast burners is about the only type of heating stove that can handle the abuse this gas gives. I would like to try to find a filter or filters that would clean it up enough to run it on a 80% or 90% furnace. Anyone out there have any suggestions or know of a company that makes these?

Depends on the impurity to be removed from the gas, which is determined from gas analysis. Specifically, test for hydrogen sulfide (H2S).If it's a shallow gas well, more than likely you'll need to scrub H2S, which is not only highly corrosive but also lethal in concentrations of 300 ppm (parts per million). If this is what needs to be removed, in my opinion, the best option is liquid sodium nitrite. Check with local chemical suppliers.
Good luck.

Hi Randy, The gas well is over 100 foot deep. It has been in use for about 70 years now. Most of the heating is done by warm morning stoves. There are about 10 houses on this well. If you try to use furnaces made today it would clog them up and or eat the burners away. Thank you for your help and anymore information you could provide would be great.

Hi Ronnie

I'm Brazillian and recently I was developing a filter for a Canadiam/Braziliam Company which was in trouble with the gas supplyed by LIQUIGAS-BR a branch of Petrobras, our Government Company.
The´problem is the oil inserted within the gas which spoils the INFRARED Heater deveoped by the Canadian-Brazilians to dry Paper in production in a Paper Machine. The oil inserted in the gas blow when riched by the InfraRed Ceramic Spum and damage it, dropping the Efficiency of dry and also bringing risks to the Paper Machine which can be on fire if flame from the blowing is big ebeouigh to set fire in the paper shee.

My development is basically using a DEMIST that is made in the States which HOLDS the oil mist coalescing it and them it is forced to be drived to another fabric that absorbs the oil, them holding it until to get saturated.

This arrangement was made to last ONE MONTH (during machine shut downs)and after that time, they have to open the filter and clean out both the DEMIST with hot water and exchange the absorbant mops, to repack the filter and put it back to work. That is based in some other filters I had developed with the Coalescing Elements I represent here from a US Company, and I am the one responsible to apply it in offsahore and Petrochemical onshore applications.
