H2S: SgPur Sour Gas Purification SystemSource: Eco-Tec Inc.
The sour gas purification system, SgPur™, recovers and purifies industrial gases produced in the oil, chemical and steel industries. Gases such as Claus tail gas, refinery flare gas, and coke gas are recovered and purified of the hydrogen sulfide (H2S), while converting the H2S to elemental sulfur.
The Eco-Tec SgPur System is an economic and effective alternative to the Claus process for the recovery and conversion of hydrogen sulfide to elemental sulfur. The SgPur is a compact, single vessel that efficiently and effectively removes sulfur without emitting any contaminants to the environment, and produces a marketable sulfur by-product.
The following industry applications can easily incorporate Eco-Tec's product series for sour gas purification:
- Natural gas
- Claus process tail gas
- Associated solution flare gas
- Refinery flare gas
- Coke oven gas
- Carbon disulfide manufacture
- Specialty chemicals
Advantages of an SgPur?
In the economic sulfur removal range of 1 - 20 tons sulfur per day, the patented Eco-Tec SgPur System provides the following distinct advantages over alternative processes:
- Capital costs significantly lower than a conventional Claus Plant
- Operating costs are low
- Marketable elemental sulfur by-products
- Highly environmentally friendly
