Advantages of Structured Packing in Tail Gas Units

Presented By

Celso Pajaro - Sulzer Chemtech

Conference: Galveston 2017

Refineries preferred the use of trays and random packing in their TGU’s absorption process. But Structured Packing technology promotes higher selectivity and lower pressure drop which yield to the reduction of CO2 concentration in your process gas. Because of the reduced CO2 recycle the Claus plant’s capacity will increase. Sulzer Chemtech will evaluate the economic and operation benefits of Structured Packing technology in Sulfur Plants, particularly in the Tail Gas Units.
