Dears: please tell us the main rea

please tell us the main reason behind amine high overflow from H2S Absorber (amine contactor)?

Best Regards

RE: Dears: please tell us the main rea

Are you talking about carryover of amine with the overhead gas?

Foaming would be one. An undersized contactor or trays could be another cause.

RE: Dears: please tell us the main rea

Yes, please define high overflow. Also what gas are you scrubbing with the amine and where does the gas go after the scrubber?
