Based on over 25 years of experimental and operational experience, GL Noble Denton have demonstrated proven expertise in the design and evaluation of adsorption systems for natural gas processing.
Adsorption is a non-destructive, regenerable process that utilizes the affinity of materials such as silica gel and molecular sieves to selectively remove species (hydrocarbons, water, methanol, sulphur species and carbon dioxide) from high-pressure gases.
Regeneration of the saturated beds is usually achieved by heating (referred to as TSA or Temperature Swing Adsorption) although pressure reduction or a combination of both can also be used. Typical applications for adsorption plants are: Offshore Production Facilities, Onshore Gas Reception Terminals, LNG Production Sites, Peak Shaving LNG Sites and Gas Storage Sites (e.g. depleted gas and oil fields, salt cavity or LNG).
