HSS Removal in the TGTU

Heat stable salts are an ever present problem in refinery gas treating applications. This brief video details a case study looking at performance issues in a Sulphur Recovery Unit’s amine based tail gas treating unit after reclaiming the solvent. By using the ProTreat® mass transfer rate based simulator, we showed what the problem was and how to establish reliable operating ranges to better understand how treating performance is affected by heat stable salts.

  • Sour water stripping

    This short video demonstrates how ProTreat can be used to simulate a sour water stripper.  Caustic soda injection is used to help spring ammonia from its combined form with the heat stable salt, formate. This is a 100% mass transfer rate based calculation.

  • Treating with a split flow configuration

    Split flow processing is a more optimal, energy efficient approach to gas treating than a single recycle loop flowsheet.   This video is a demonstration of a split flow gas treating arrangement using a DEA solvent.

  • Standard recycle flowsheet

    This case demonstrates the simulation of a standard, single-recycle, gas treating plant and shows speedy convergence and the ready availability of temperature and composition profiles to aid the interpretation of results.
