There are a number of factors that affect the capacity and operation of a typical amine system. Solid or liquid contaminants in the system may cause foaming. The presence of foaming is typically addressed by the addition of expensive antifoam chemicals and/or by reducing the operating capacity of the amine system. In addition to this, the presence of contaminants in the system can foul heat exchangers and column packing or trays. These solid and liquid contaminants are either ingressed into the system with the feed stream, or generated within it as a result of the chemistry of the system. These contaminants are typically addressed by means of particle filters and carbon adsorption.
