CAPTURE

HIGH-P ABS & DES (NL1.4)

High pressure absorption and desorption pilot

The pilot plant consists of an absorber, a conventional desorber and a membrane gas desorption unit (MGD), which can be operated in continuous cycle mode. The pilot test is skid mounted and can be relocated, due to its compact design. The gas supply setup is flexible and easy to adjust to specific needs. The desorber can be equipped with commercial structured packing material. With the high pressure absorber and desorber pilot plant it is possible to demonstrate new solvents and their stability at different process conditions. The high pressure absorber and desorber pilot plant is equipped with the latest technologies regarding process monitoring and process measurement. Furthermore, the pilot plant offers good accessibility, user friendly operations and a very user friendly process data collection system.. Gas flow rate: 0-5 Nm3/h; Liquid flow rate: 0-25 kg/h liquid circulation. Pressure up to 50 bar; temperature stripper up to 140°C; temperature range absorber 15-80°C.
