Expands refinery amines reprocessing capabilities

ORG CHEM Group now offers economical on-site reclamation services in addition to its traditional off-site services using a portable, skid-mounted unit that can effectively remove impurities from your contaminated fluid at your location. The Portable Reclaimer is ideally suited for customers that have chemical contamination causing operational issues or desire their chemical solution quality to be improved.

The on-site unit can be used where transportation costs to off-site reprocessing are prohibitive or where hazardous components in amine systems prevent them from being transported. The Reclaimer Unit is a self-contained, fully automated vacuum distillation process unit. It is based on ORG CHEM Group's proven short path distillation technology. It has a mechanically simple design, which is safe, reliable and low maintenance.

ORG CHEM Group has provided off-site amine reclaiming for over 10 years and has successful long-term reclamation programs in place at several large US refineries. A reclamation maintenance program is designed to manage and optimize Heat Stable Amine Salts levels through periodic reclamation. Heat Stable Salts are often implicated as the culprit for an assortment of amine issues such as corrosion, foaming, reduced performance and operational difficulties, and rightly so. However, the presence of heat stable salts does reduce the pH of the amine solution resulting in improved regenerator stripping. Thus the question arises: What is the optimal level of heat stable salts that will balance improved stripping and reduced energy cost with maintaining proper amine hygiene?

ORG CHEM Group's off-site maintenance programs allow the customer to optimize HSAS levels and capitalize on the benefit of HSAS, i.e. improved stripping efficiency and energy savings, while maintaining HSAS and degradation contaminants below cautionary levels. Volumes reclaimed each month vary with system size and HSAS incursion (build-up) rate, amine type, and HSAS targets. Our expert staff provides hands on monitoring and advice to manage the programs.
