Customer-Tailored Solutions for Natural Gas Treatment

Durasorb is our innovation platform for the natural gas processing industry. Durasorb is a customer-tailored solution that combines superior adsorbents with BASF’s expert designs. The new technology uses proprietary design software to calculate the performance of the adsorbents in all parts of the vessel and maximize the overall performance and life of the bed. Based on design calculations, BASF natural gas experts choose the ideal combination of adsorbents out of the comprehensive BASF portfolio. The resulting installation ensures more efficient removal of contaminants and solves regeneration-reflux problems.

BASF Products for Natural Gas Treatment

BASF Natural Gas experts have a diverse portfolio of products to custom design a solution to meet your Natural Gas Treatment needs. Innovative products solve problems at the plant by removing impurities and providing reflux resistance to increase bedlife. Durasorb combined with OASE® Gas Treatment technology, provide the full LNG pre-treatment package.

Using Durasorb technology to extend bed life can eliminate turnarounds, saving significant maintenance costs. Durasorb reduces plant downtime and provides reliable production. Without Durasorb, unplanned maintenance and lost production can become costly.

Total Turnaround
* Includes maintenance costs and cost of adsorbent

* Loss of production is based on plant size and number of shutdown days

Case Studies

See an example of Durasorb extending unit life and saving costs.

Durasorb™ Dehy

Durasorb™ Dehy

Durasorb Dehy is an innovative technology that provides reliable dehydration service to LNG producers. The combination bed is designed by experts to eliminate degradation from regeneration reflux conditions. Durasorb Dehy units have longer bed life, extending time between turnarounds, which reduces costs and lost production time.

Durasorb™ HRU

Durasorb™ HRU

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™ HG

Durasorb™ HG

Durasorb HG is a high capacity, robust mercury adsorbent designed to operate in the harshest conditions
