Molecular Sieves

The molecular sieve process uses synthetically manufactured solid crystalline zeolite in a dry bed to remove gas impurities. The crystalline structure of the solids provides a very porous solid material with all the pores exactly the same size. Within the … Continue reading

Zinc Oxide

The zinc oxide process is similar to the iron sponge process. It uses a solid bed of granular zinc oxide to react with the H2S to form water and zinc sulfide: The rate of reaction is controlled by the diffusion … Continue reading

SulfaTreat

SulfaTreat® process is similar to the iron sponge process. It uses a patented proprietary mixture of ferric oxide and triferric oxide to react with H2O to sweeten gas streams. In SulfaTreat® process the iron oxides are supported on the surface … Continue reading

Iron Sponge

The iron sponge process uses the chemical reaction of ferric oxide with H2S to sweeten gas streams. This process is applied to gases with low H2S concentrations (300 ppm) operating at low to moderate pressures (50-500 psig). Carbon dioxide is … Continue reading

Solid Bed Absorption

A fixed bed of solid particles can be used to remove acid gases either through chemical reactions or ionic bonding. Typically, in solid bed absorption processes the gas stream must flow through a fixed bed of solid particles that remove … Continue reading
