Eliminating Fouling and Foamingblueskyadmin
Two of the most common problems that occur in an amine unit are fouling and foaming. Foaming can result in massive amine losses; reduce operational capacity and a product that does not meet specifications. Amine that is carried over into the gas stream can result in downstream equipment becoming fouled, including burners and compressors. Fouling can also cause the need for pump seals to be replaced on a frequent basis.
