Amine Experts has world class laboratory analysis and evaluation capabilities to undertake a complete study of amine samples. This information is required to properly evaluate and troubleshoot the performance of the amine system. When these analyses are carried out on a regular basis, a very valuable operating history is established, which significantly aids troubleshooting and measuring unit performance.

Analysis Include:

  • amine concentration
  • water content 
  • heat stable amine salts (total % amine bound)
  • H2S loading
  • CO2 loading
  • GC analysis of the solvent (to identify degradation products)
  • suspended solid content
  • pH
  • metal scan (Fe, Mn, Cr, Ni, K, Na)
  • visual appearance
  • mass balance
  • evaluation report and targets
  • foam test
Additional analyses available
  • ion chromatographic (IC) analysis of all organic and inorganic acids

    Amine Experts’ analysis report includes:

    • Mass Balance Closure
    • Several built in cross checks on the results
    • Trend analysis
    • Comments on the significance of the results
