Framework for selecting thin-cake candle filter technology for removing solid contaminant fines from recirculating gas scrubbing fluids
Removing acid gases and gas dehydration from gas streams is becoming more important as stricter environmental rules are being developed and gas streams are being developed off-shore for LNG. Candle filter technology and the process of thin-cake building, is a new approach for high-efficiency and cost-effective fines removal. The presentation begins with the problem definition and a discussion of the bench-top laboratory tests that are conducted for problem analysis, technology selection and scale-up. The presentation concludes with a review of typical case history and installation details for on-shore and off-shore applications.
