You might consider routing the off gas from the treatment unit back to the DCU heater. I have worked with a few plants that have a burner specially designs for this stream. It needs to be handled carefully from a design and interlock perspective. But it can be a shorter run than to the the SRU and reduce the risk of plugging. But I agree with the earlier comments from Mike that the water and loading are the primary causes of issues.
