Amine System Performance

Tailored to meet each client’s specifications, MPR Services provides advanced technology for either mobile or permanently installed equipment. This TKI business unit can provide both patented processes and analytical services to create economical and environmentally friendly improvements in plant operations.

Gas Treating Systems – Alkanolamine cleaning using ion exchange. MPR processes a slipstream of the lean solvent, removing heat-stable salts ions. Depending on the specific degradation a product, MPR technology removes (as with amino acids) or recovers (as with formamides and oxazolidones) the solvent, and is available as either a mobile or permanent unit. Clients realize key benefits that include increased acid gas handling capacity, more stable operating conditions, reduced corrosion, and diminished amine consumption.

Heat Stable Salts, Hydrocarbons and Solids Removal processes are used in other types of gas treating solutions, including glycols and sulfolane.

The MPR Glycolex™ Process removes both cation and anion contaminants from common glycols, including mono-ethylene glycol, di-ethylene glycol, tri-ethylene glycol, di-glycol amine and tetra-ethylene glycol.

The MPR OXEX™ Process converts oxazolidones (degradation products) back to valuable amine resulting in decreased production costs while generating environmentally friendly waste – a benefit of all MPR processes.

Caustic Treaters, MPR’s MPRox™ Process, is an efficient chemical oxidation process for the on-site treatment of spent caustics. It reduces harmful toxins and odor precursors in spent caustic – including sulfidic, naphthenic and cresylic – into a biodegradable stream that is conducive for processing in a conventional wastewater treatment plant.

Sour Water Treating Systems are designed for abatement and cleanup of sour water with the MPR SWAT™ Program. Either mobile or installed, these units work in parallel with existing sour water stripping equipment to handle excess load or particularly onerous water streams.

For cyanide control, the MPR Cyntrol™ Program decreases the possibility of cyanide-assisted corrosion while significantly reducing the potential for free cyanide in the refinery’s wastewater effluent.

MPR performs a unique on-site analysis of free cyanide levels to optimize its Cyntrol (ammonium polysulfide, APS) cyanide control service. Due to the reactive nature of free cyanide, this on-site program delivers a valuable diagnosis and follow-up recommendations to efficiently and economically manage cyanide control.
