Durasorb HRU removes BTX and Heavy Hydrocarbons for LNG Pre-Treatment

Durasorb HRU is specifically designed for the removal of aromatic hydrocarbons (BTX) and heavy hydrocarbons from lean gas feeds in LNG pre-treatment.

It provides a 30 percent increase in capacity for BTX components, allowing for the effective removal of BTX to less than 1ppm without compromising unit efficiency.

Durasorb HRU technology relies on propriety design software and decades of experience from natural gas experts. BASF experts utilize the combination bed approach and the broad portfolio of Durasorb products to optimize bed layout and performance. Durasorb HRU bed consists of products specifically designed to remove BTX and heavy hydrocarbons.

Improved Adsorbent Capacity Reduces Project Costs

Newly developed materials allow for a 30% reduction in project footprint by reducing bed size or number of beds required to meet specifications.

Case Study: Membrane CO2 Removal from Natural Gas, Grissik Gas Plant, Sumatra, Indonesia

One of the world’s largest membrane systems is used for bulk removal of CO2 from natural gas at the Grissik gas processing plant in South Sumatra, Indonesia. The membrane system processes 310 MMSCFD of natural gas, reducing CO2 from 30% to 15%. The Grissik plant is termed a membrane plus amine hybrid which offers particularly attractive operational benefits. The membrane system has been operating for more than four years with no membrane replacement and offers the benefit of very long membrane life.
