Extract H2S, COS and CO2 from gases and light liquid streams with amine solution using FIBERFILM contactor technology.
The amine phase flows along the FIBERFILM contactor fibers, which are continuously renewed, as the wet fibers are preferentially wetted by the amine phase in the AMINEX process. Hydrocarbons flow through the shroud parallel to the
amine-wetted fibers where the H2S, COS, and/or CO2 are extracted into the amine phase. The two phases disengage in the separator vessel where the rich amine flows to the amine regeneration unit and the treated gas or light liquids goes to storage.
Economics: FIBER-FILM contactor technology requires smaller processing vessels allowing shorter separation times and less waste generation. This saves plant space and reduces capital expenditures.
