Amine Sweetening of Natural Gas
Product Summary: Amine treating is a proven technology that removes H2S and CO2 from gas and liquid streams through absorption and chemical reaction. Each of the alkanolamines offer distinct advantages to specific treating problems
Manufacturer Info: Dickson Process Systems is an engineering, design, and fabrication company. Dickson specializes in amine systems, dehydration units, liquid recovery plants, adsorption units, skid mounted equipment, and ASME code pressure vessels.
Their customers include utility companies, pipeline operators, major oil companies, and engineering contractors. Units they have designed and manufactured are currently operating at remote sites and in large gas processing facilities. This equipment is located throughout the United States as well as international sites in Pakistan, Mexico, and South America.
Product Detail: D & T amine treating processes include MEA is used in low pressure treating applications and in operations requiring stringent outlet gas specifications. DGA is used when there is a need for carbonyl sulfide and mercaptan removal in addition to H2S and CO2 removal from gas and liquid streams. DEA is used in medium to high pressure treating. High solution loadings and lower heats of reaction allow for smaller plant sizes and lower operating costs. MDEA has a higher affinity for H2S and CO2. The selective absorption of H2S can reduce the costs of utilities and equipment as well as provide enriched acid gas concentrations for feeds to sulfur recovery units. Formulated (specialty Solvents A variety of blended or specialty solvents are available on the market. These specialty solvents often offer reduced circulation, reduced fuel consumption, and reduced plant initial cost when compared to the above conventional amines. Specialty solvents are combined with physical solvents when mercaptan removal is required.
Custom designed, skid mounted amine plants up to 1000 GPM or standard design packages are available.
