Natural Gas Processing
& Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
Cryogenic natural gas processing plants, liquefied natural gas plants (LNG) and fractionation plants depend upon molecular sieves to remove water and other contaminants to very low levels in both gas and liquid phase streams. Zeochem offers a wide range of long-lasting molecular sieve zeolite products for natural gas dehydration and treating to meet final quality specifications for pipeline, natural gas liquids (NGL), fractionation liquid products (propane, butane, isobutane, pentane, isopentane, hexanes+) and liquefied natural gas (LNG). Our molecular sieve products effectively remove water, hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, oxygenates and carbon dioxide contaminants during gas processing and treating.
Cryogenic plants that use turbo-expansion technology to recover hydrocarbon liquids utilize Zeochem molecular sieves to protect downstream equipment by consistently drying their natural gas to less than 0.1 ppmv to prevent ice formation and the resulting pressure drop. Natural gas and LNG plants worldwide utilize Zeochem molecular sieves to purify the hydrocarbon stream, beyond simple dehydration, by removing sulfurs and oxygenates to meet product specifications. Our robust molecular sieve products reliably maintain protection for downstream equipment and consistently allow our customers to meet product specifications over the course of the complete service life of the adsorbent.
