Amine Solution Heat Recovery
Process Flow Diagram

Amine Solution Heat Recovery

One of the best practices to recover Carbon Dioxide is using Amine solution. Lean amine is used to absorb Carbon Dioxide by contacting with flue gas in the absorption tower.

After absorbing Carbon Dioxide from the flue gas, lean amine becomes rich amine which needs to be heated before feeding into the regeneration tower to release Carbon Dioxide. In this process, steam is normally used to heat the rich amine. By incorporating a heat exchanger as a heat recovery unit, one can reduce the steam volume to heat the rich amine and achieve up to 85% heat recovery.

Where can we apply heat recovery in Amine solution process?

1. After absorption tower - Heat exchanger can be installed after the absorption tower as a heat recovery unit to achieve up to 85% heat recovery and reduce the usage of steam to heat the rich amine.

Centralised Seawater Cooling System

Centralized Seawater Cooling System

Petrochemical refineries required heavy cooling mechanisms for their process line. The central cooling system utilized seawater to cool fresh circulating water requires for the refinery.

Compared to the cooling tower, a central cooling system is more economically viable, as it is free from clogging and fouling which happened from a typical cooling tower.

Our Suggestion On Common Maintenance Issues

Issue 1: Plate deformation
Issue 1: Plate deformation

This issue may occur due to mishandling of the plates when performing maintenance work. Continuation of using damaged plate pack will cause serious deformation when pressurized. This will cause serious leaking which might affect the safety concern

HISAKA suggestions:
  • Consult HISAKA professional service team to conduct proper maintenance.
  • Replace damaged plates with the same specification complete set (plate and gasket).
  • Plan proper preventive maintenance.
Issue 2: Eroded S-frame

This issue may occur due to the normal gasket is wrongly install as D-plate gasket which causes direct contact of process liquid with the frame and cause heavy corrosion. Heavy corrosion of the frame may lead to leaking which threatens the safety concern.

HISAKA suggestions:
  • Overhaul and repaint frame.
  • Consult HISAKA service team to perform professional maintenance - Avoid maintenance by inexperienced personnel.
