Refining & Petrochemical Process


Most refining and petrochemical processes utilize vessels where extreme pressures, high temperatures and corrosive fluids can put significant strain on screen internals. You can’t afford the cost of downtime resulting from plugged screens or damage to expensive downstream equipment caused by catalyst migration, which is why high quality screens will ensure maximum reactor activity and increase the catalysts’ run length as long as possible.

At PIPAMAS, we understand the refining and petrochemical industry and the role our screens play in your processes. Our products are engineered to withstand the rigors of these challenging conditions and are manufactured for long-lasting, reliable performance.

We offer a broad selection of screen internals to help improve efficiency at virtually every step of your process, including:

  • Catalyst support grids
  • Centerpipes
  • Header / Hub Laterals
  • Nozzles
  • Outer Baskets
  • Outlet Baskets
  • Radial Flow screens
  • Scale Traps
  • Scallops
  • Outlet baskets for media retention in high-pressure up-flow or down-flow systems.
  • Centerpipes, outer baskets and scallop screens for radial flow systems.
  • Scale traps to capture contaminants and increase flow area into the bed.

No matter what the application, you need a screen that is built to endure under the harshest conditions. At PIPAMAS, we precision weld our screens to ensure reliable performance for years to come.

Every screen is manufactured at our state-of-the-art facility in Batu Ampar, Batam Islands – the most modern facility of its kind. PIPAMAS is ISO 9001 certified and every screen we produce is fully tested to meet or exceed the ISO 17824 standard for burst and collapse.

Choose from our comprehensive line of standard configurations, or let us work with you to manufacture screens to your exact specifications. Each of our refining and petrochemical products is available in 321, 304 or 316 stainless steel with specialty treatments available to meet the requirements of your particular application.
