AdapT 251 is a formulated MDEA-based solvent designed for total removal of acid gases from natural gas streams. As it consists of both a chemical and physical solvent component, it will also remove mercaptans to low concentrations.
The removal of sour or acid gas components such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S) or carbon dioxide (CO2) from gas streams is a common process, known as acid gas removal or gas sweetening. These impurities have to be eliminated or reduced to a specified level, for a variety of reasons: toxicity (H2S), corrosiveness of the gas, low caloric value, environment or other reasons depending on the application of the gas.
For over 50 years, alkanolamines have been used for acid gas treatment in natural gas and petroleum processing industries. AdapT solvent range is based on today’s most advanced and preferred alkanolamine for gas treatment technology: MDEA, and MDEA-based formulations.
