ANGUS offers a unique portfolio of specialty amines ideal for use in a variety of carbon capture and gas processing applications. Selecting the right amine for gas processing is complex and must be based on several process, experimental data and simulation considerations. Using the right chemistry is essential to optimizing equipment size and minimizing plant operating costs. Some important factors to consider when selecting an amine for existing plant evaluation or new design include:
- Absorption performance: capacity and rate
- Regeneration energy: heat of absorption / desorption
- Cost and availability
- Low hydrocarbons absorption
- Capacity availability
- Low corrosivity
- High thermal stability
- Low vapor pressure
- Gas selectivity
ANGUS gas treating amines provide performance improvement versus incumbent technologies through increased capacity, rate of absorption, and selectivity. ANGUS offers customized solutions, including the ability to develop or tailor blends specific to your gas treating needs.
In addition, ANGUS amino alcohol chemistries have shown utility for corrosion resistance, emulsion stability and compatibility with other ingredients used in various subsea and land-based oil and gas production applications.
- Increased throughput by using a hindered amine to enable higher CO2 and H2S absorption
- Decreased energy use due to lower heat of absorption and regeneration requirements
- Potentially eliminates the need for an activator
- Improved corrosion resistance and emulsion stability
DID YOU KNOW?
DMAMP-80™ acid gas scavenger is a preferred replacement to MDEA because it enables at least 50% loading level with the highest absorption capacity and fastest relative rate of CO2 absorption while only marginally increasing regeneration energy requirements.
