Amine removal

Amine systems ( acid gas scrubbing units employing alkanolamine solvents ) have been scrutinized more and more closely over the last 15 to 20 years.

The amine system is designed to form salts from the reaction of amine with acid gases H2S and CO2 in the absorber (contactor), and to reverse the process in the stripper, releasing the acid gases to the stripper overhead.
