Have You Ever Had A Slug Of Hydrocarbon Contaminate Your Amine?
By Pentair Oil & Gas Separations
A Gulf Coast refinery's amine system was contaminated with up to 3 percent hydrocarbon. The contamination consisted of hydrocarbon from upstream process units and particulate. The hydrocarbon consisted of LCO and heavy diesel. The current system consisted of an undersized flash tank and a 20 percent slipstream filtration. The current system could not remove the contaminants so the refinery had to decommission the amine and replace it with new fresh amine.
