COVENTRY, RI, Oct. 15, 2014 -- A pipeline testing project, which took place near Prudhoe Bay in the North Slope Borough of Alaska -- one of the most remote locations in the U.S. -- recently received two skid-mounted ultraviolet (UV) systems from Neptune Benson, a manufacturer of commercial filtration and UV disinfection systems and components.

These ETS-UV compact skidded units, each with the capacity to disinfect 600 gallons of water per minute, were provided in parallel to the project and join a host of sustainable products custom engineered for the oil and gas and petrochemical industries. The stainless steel equipment was specially designed to provide protection from the harsh conditions of the Alaskan tundra.

Increased regulation on discharge requirements has led to greater demand for environmentally friendly ways to perform tasks, such as maintenance and testing for pipeline integrity in the oil and gas industry. This testing is done using treated water to pressurize the pipeline to ensure its construction meets design specifications.

UV light is a simple and very powerful method for disinfecting corrosion-inducing microorganisms present in the water, without adding residual chemicals to the testing process. A number of modifications are made to standard UV systems to strengthen the units and ensure that they perform reliably under harsh oilfield site conditions. Wipers are always fitted to prevent fouling, and vibration and shock are handled using a variety of innovative design features. ETS has both trailer-mounted units and self-contained units (containerized or skidded).
