The natural gas processing with scrubbing liquids, such as MDEA, is an industrial process to improve the quality of natural gas. The natural gas is led counter-current in the absorber through MDEA, which is enri-ched with disturbing components. At the upper end of the absorber, the purified natural gas escapes. The MDEA (rich amine) that is contaminated with H2S and CO2 is transferred after the scrubbing in the stripper.
In the stripping process, the scrubbing liquid is heated and the acid gases are desorbed. The regenerated MDEA (lean amine) is then cooled, filtered and lead back into the absorption cycle.
The LiquiSonic® 30 system allows a detailed analysis of the regenerated MDEA concentration. Through the inline LiquiSonic® sensors, the amine scrubbing is analyzable around the clock with precise real-time data storage. This enables the user to react in a flexible manner and the efficiency of the absorption can be optimized.
