There are often some typical contaminants found in rich amine that needs removal to prevent erosion, corrosion and foaming.

These are as follows:

  • Organic and inorganic solids
  • Lubrication oils
  • Rust
  • Iron sulfide and iron oxide (fine suspended particles)
  • Corrosion inhibitors
  • Pipe scale
  • Dissolved liquid hydrocarbons
  • Excessive antifoam agents
  • Grease
  • Well treating chemicals
