Amine regenerators are usually trayed columns with FLEXITRAY® valve trays.
Customers typically select type 304 SS as the material of construction.
In hot carbonate systems, both the absorber and the desorber are frequently packed columns.
Higher capacity packing, such as INTALOX® ULTRA, IMTP®, and CASCADE MINI-RINGS® random packings can be used to circulate more solvent. INTALOX® high performance liquid distributors can reduce the CO2 slip. Customers typically select type 304 SS for use in corrosive zones of these columns, but carbon steel is also used to save costs on the large volumes needed.
