Application: CHLOREX treating system removes inorganic chloride compounds from liquid and gas reformer products using a FIBER-FILM Contactor and an alkaline water treating solution.
Description: The CHLOREX system uses an alkaline water solution to extract chloride impurities contained in the reformate stabilizer feed or the stabilizer overhead product. CHLOREX can also be used to remove chlorides from reformer offgas. Fresh caustic and fresh process water are added to the system to maintain the proper pH of the recycle solution.
Competitive advantages: CHLOREX produces an easily handled waste when compared to disposal of sacrificial solid bed absorbents.
