The removal of sour gas components from the gas streams using chemical solvents, such as MDEA, is a requirement in most hydrocarbon processing plants. The acid gas constituents (H2S and CO2) react with an aqueous solution in a high-pressure absorber. Subsequently, the solvent is stripped from the acid gas in the regenerator at elevated temperature to reuse it. Figure 1 illustrates a typical gas treating plant employing an alkanolamine. One of the most frequent faults in gas sweetening is amine f...
