Application: AMINEX treating system extracts H2S and COS from propane with an amine solution using FIBER-FILM Contactor technology.
Description: In an AMINEX system, the amine phase flows along the fibers of the FIBER-FILM Contactor as it preferentially wets the fibers. The propane phase flows through the amine-wetted fibers as the H2S and COS are extracted into the amine phase. The two phases disengage in the separator vessel with the rich amine flowing to the amine regeneration unit and the treated propane flowing to storage.
Competitive advantages: FIBER-FILM Contactor technology requires smaller processing vessels thus saving valuable plant space and reducing capital expenditure.
