BASF Launches a New Fam­ily of Ab­sorbent So­lu­tion- Dura­sorb™

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

BASF has an­nounced the com­mer­cial launch of Dura­sorb™, a new fam­ily of ad­sorp­tion so­lu­tions de­signed for Nat­u­ral Gas pro­cess­ing. Dura­sorb pro­vides gas pro­cess­ing plant op­er­a­tors, es­pe­cially liq­ue­fied nat­u­ral gas (LNG) plants, with more re­li­able and more ro­bust de­hy­dra­tion ser­vice. The new prod­uct fam­ily com­bines in­no­va­tive ma­te­ri­als de­vel­oped from BASF’s unique Sor­bead tech­nol­ogy and

® pro­pri­etary de­sign soft­ware to cal­cu­late the per­for­mance of the ad­sor­bents in all parts of the de­hy­dra­tion 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 wa­ter and hy­dro­car­bons and solves re­gen­er­a­tion-re­flux prob­lems. With more ro­bust and re­li­able prod­ucts, Dura­sorb so­lu­tions sup­port value cre­ation at gas pro­cess­ing plants by in­creas­ing pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity and de­liv­er­abil­ity of high-value car­goes, re­duc­ing bed sizes, in­creas­ing bed life, and en­abling higher through­put rates.

Build­ing on the suc­cess of de­vel­op­ment tri­als in North Amer­i­can gas pro­cess­ing plants, BASF has in­stalled its first ref­er­ence in an LNG pre-treat­ment plant. Plant op­er­a­tion of Dura­sorb ver­i­fied the abil­ity to im­prove de­hy­dra­tion sys­tems’ dura­bil­ity which ex­pands pro­duc­tion po­ten­tial, lead­ing to higher yields of valu­able prod­ucts.
