A pulse cleaning filter system has a housing with an inlet side and an outlet side separated by a planar tubesheet. The housing includes multiple tubesheet openings forming multiple rows. Multiple cylindrical filter cartridges have an open end sealed around one of the tubesheet openings and a closed end at the inlet side of the housing. A filter cleaning system includes a compressed gas header extending perpendicular to a normal of the tubesheet, multiple compressed gas outlet stub pipes extending from the header, right angle pulse valves connecting each of the stub pipes to a pulse manifold pipe including a first straight portion, a ninety degree bend at the outlet side of the housing, and a second straight portion at the outlet side of the housing. A gas pulse nozzle has a main injection axis directed along the central axis of the filter cartridge.

The invention is directed to a process that combines the solvent deasphalting with resin hydrotreatment and coupled with delayed coking so as to reduce the costs associated with performing each of the steps separately. The integrated process of the invention permits higher product yields coupled with lower energy and transportation costs.

In one aspect, the present invention relates to a furnace having a heated portion arranged adjacent to an unheated portion. A plurality of straight tubes are formed of a first material and are at least partially disposed in the heated portion. A plurality of return bends are operatively coupled to the plurality of straight tubes. The plurality of return bends are formed of a second material and are at least partially disposed in the unheated portion. The first material exhibits a maximum temperature greater than the second material thereby facilitating increased run time of the furnace. The second material exhibits wear-resistance properties greater than the first material thereby facilitating wear-resistance of the furnace.

A furnace system includes at least one lower radiant section having a first firebox disposed therein and at least one upper radiant section disposed above the at least one lower radiant section. The at least one upper radiant section has a second firebox disposed therein. The furnace system further includes at least one convection section disposed above the at least one upper radiant section and an exhaust corridor defined by the first firebox, the second firebox, and the at least one convection section. Arrangement of the at least one upper radiant section above the at least one lower radiant section reduces an area required for construction of the furnace system.

An inlet air filter arrangement for a gas turbine or a combustion turbine includes a housing with an inlet side and an outlet side separated by a planar tubesheet including multiple tubesheet openings. Each multiple cylindrical filter cartridge includes a symmetry axis, an open end, and a closed end. A connection assembly for each of the multiple cylindrical filter cartridges seals the open end of the cylindrical filter cartridge to the tubesheet around one of the tubesheet openings. The connection assembly includes a mainly cylindrical guide sleeve including a symmetry axis, a shell with a cylindrical external surface, an inner end attached around the tubesheet opening and an outer end at the inlet side of the housing. The shell is provided with at least two slots extending mainly helically from the outer end towards the inner end. A collar attaches to the open end of the cylindrical filter cartridge.
