Amine Treating

Pumps for efficient removal of hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide from natural gas

Amine Treating

Amine gas treating utilizes various alkylamine solutions to remove hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide from natural gas.  Midstream plants treat raw gas transported from the wellhead to produce sweet gas for further processing. Sundyne sealless magnetic drive API-685 Centrifugal pumps and Sunflo industrial grade pumps are commonly used in the reflux and lean amine processes.

Sunflo Industrial Grade Pumps

The preferred choice for applications with low NPSH requirements.  Their small footprint enables them to be deployed in any plant environment.  316 stainless steel construction (with higher alloys available) enables Sunflo pumps to resist corrosion, and Sunflo’s thrust bearing capabilities enable the pumps to withstand upset conditions and operate reliably round the clock.

HMD/Kontro Sealless Magnetic Drive Pumps

API-685 Centrifugal pumps are commonly used in the reflux and lean amine processes. These types of applications can pose challenges to pump seals by creating magnetic losses and by heating the process fluid.  But Sealless magnetic drive pumps from Sundyne HMD Kontro overcome these challenges through containment shells which eliminate eddy current losses in the pump and reduce energy consumption.  With no seals to repair, or replace, maintenance is minimized – and worker/environmental safety is also improved through leak-free operation.
