Black Carbon, the new health risk

The Lynx Separator removes liquids from gas and black carbon particles from combustion. The technology could greatly reduce shipping emissions.

Lynx EGR open for international customers

Lynx EGR for cleaning the exhaust for EGR systems (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) is now available for international customers. The Lynx is an efficient cleaner that removes all liquid and a percentage of dry carbon particles from the flow. Most modern engines now require exhaust gas recirculation to meet the new emissions standards, but struggle with liquids and contaminant carryover  from scrubbers and filters that are not sufficiently efficient.

Exclusive sales and marketing agreement for «Lynx EGR» with Flebu International


Since 1955 Flebu has provided high quality centrifugal fans, silencers, dampers and related steel products to the global industrial power industry, maritime and offshore industry. Flebu’s brand motto «Performance Guaranteed” aligns very well with the business strategy of InnSep.

The InnSep-Flebu partnership opens access to the EGR market of 70.000 ships worldwide. The Lynx EGR removes liquids, black carbon and soot particles from the exhaust flow with higher efficiency and lower footprint.

Record fast technology implementation of Lynx Scrubber

The fast-track development of the Lynx Scrubber for Dry Gas Seal protection was profiled in the Tech Zone blog from NTNU by professor Carlos Dorao. The innovation project managed to compress the steps through the Technology Readiness Levels used on the Norwegian Continental Shelf from 10-15 years to less than 1 year.

This may be a new record in Norwegian O&G industry, demonstrating how it is possible to rapidly solve operational problems, without circumventing any regulations.

The effect of this R&D strategy allows the Lynx Scrubber to generate operation hours that can shorten the steps towards the highest TRL level in other application areas. For main gas/liquid separation, both before and after compressors, the equipment requires successful integration and operation over a period of time in the actual conditions.

This strategy performed better than planned and was only possible through the R&D excellence of NTNU, InnSep and EagleBurgmann, combined with EagleBurgmann’s leading expertise in the O&G industry, says CEO Sondre Jacobsen. Based on this success, we have allready planned follow-up projects, including the upcoming DEMO2000 project for large-scale gas/liquid scrubbing.

Invitation to JIP for full scale pilot of Lynx 250 Separator

Full scale pilot Lynx 250

High pressure gas/liquid testing of Lynx 250 at CEESI, USA.

Lynx scrubbers secure production regularity by preventing tripping of compressors and malfunctions in fuel gas and dry gas seal systems due to liquid carry over.

As The Norwegian Continental Shelf is expected to yield larger amounts of gas relative to oil, the regularity of the gas processing and export systems becomes even more important The Lynx scrubber is robust to high liquid loads and variations and removing the liquid fractions that pass through conventional scrubbers. This reduces MTF and upholds plant integrity.

Interest of participation to be notified by 12th October 2016

EagleBurgmann Lynx for Dry Gas Seals is ready for action

EagleBurgmann at InnSep stand at ONS2016

EagleBurgmann Norway AS har manufactured and pressure-tested the Lynx for Dry Gas Seal application successfully at 330 bar. It will be deployed this September, marking the start of the first effective solution for protecting the extremely sensitive dry gas seal systems, regardless of brand or manufacturer.

This is the type of disruptive innovaton that is possible when leading minds in the industry work together.

The Lynx Dry Gas Seal was rapidly prototyped at the InnSep/NTNU laboratories in Trondheim and EagleBurgmann laboratories at Skedsmokorset, outside of Oslo. Datapoints from the STATOIL High Pressure testing in Rotvoll, Trondheim, were used to optimize the final design parameters. EagleBurgmann project managers Jon Baklien (right, picture), and Claes Wilhelmsson (midde, picture) regard rapid prototyping and deployment as a crucial service to the oil industry. With increasing maintenance costs, rising challenges of gas processing and more autonomous operations, efficient innovation processes are the critical element in securing plant integrity and operation stability for operators.

Getting a grip on gas processing

InnSep ONS stand

The capacity to process gas is a growing challenge on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Maturing of fields, increased water fractions and re-injection are factors that require solution exceeding the current optimization of conventional technology.

InnSep AS created a strong interest in the Lynx 250 scrubber at ONS, showcasing a leap of efficiency capable of addressing the increased demands. Key features are robustness against variations and high liquid loads, and that it doesn’t flood.

NTNU Discovery is the idea-funding mechanism generated by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to fund early phase ideas and innovations. InnSep was the first recipient of funding in 2011 when the fund was established, and enabled InnSep to develop and perform the first full scale hydrocarbon testing of the Lynx Separator principle. This was the all-important start that allowed the technology to be qualified for use in the oil industry and branching out to other markets. The fund has supported 10-15 projects every year and several have become global successes.
