Running dirty amine to save costs

Some plants have saved money in the short term by running dirty amine/glycol systems. The result of this obfuscation strategy often is problematic operations. Problems resulting from corrosion, foaming and loss of acid gas absorption arise from processing with contaminated amine/glycol. A single severe process upset resulting in a large solvent loss may put you over budget for the year. We know how important controlling amine/glycol losses and costs can be. MPR Services, Inc. is ready to provide proven assistance to our customers by reclaiming and conserving 99% of their solvent as well as saving money.
