Optimized Gas Treating ProTreat v6.4

Optimized Gas Treating ProTreat v6.4
The ProTreat® simulator is the industry\’s most advanced simulation tool for gas treating. Because ProTreat® is a rigorous rate-based simulator, it offers the ultimate in accuracy, reliability, and truly predictive power. ProTreat® provides you with unparalleled capabilities in design, plant optimization, and troubleshooting. A ProTreat® model of your facility creates a virtual plant.
ProTreat Gas Treating Advantages

Assess the exact effect of your specific column internals on acid gas selectivity and solvent regeneration.
Determine whether a special tray design will improve H2S removal in shale gas – and tail gas-treating.
Simulate and design acid gas enrichment (AGE) units.
Accurately simulate blends of up to three amines, including MDEA-based blends.
Account for the impact of a wide variety of heat stable salts (HSSs), phosphoric acid additive, and caustic contamination on treating plant performance.
Quantify the utility of the additive piperazine on ammonia syngas and LNG production and determine whether the treating unit being designed or revamped may be operating close to a stability limit before the plant is built.
Determine the distribution of ammonia and methanol in gas treating, SRU, and TGU systems.
Simulate the physical solvent DMPEG (dimethyl ether of polyethylene glycol), glycol dehydration, and sour water stripping as mass-transfer rate-controlled processes.
Perform detailed carbon capture studies, including the possible benefits of using amino acid salts.
Simulate HotPot (i.e. potassium carbonate or K2CO3) promoted with up to three amines as a mass transfer rate-based process.
Account for the effect of 13 HSS contaminants (phenolic water) and caustic soda addition on sour water stripper performance.
Use ProTreat\’s exclusive mass transfer rate basis to deal properly with structured and random packing.


Should a column ever be designed without considering internals? The answer, of course, is no. Then why would you use a process simulator that models theoretical stages and not real internals? While designing your gas treating plant, ask yourself:

Is your current simulator really predictive?
Does it use or ask for residence times or component and thermal efficiencies in an attempt to translate theoretical stages to real internals?
How can you be confident the translation from theoretical to real is accurate? The inputs required for translation are usually just a guess.

Theoretical stages are just that-they\’re theoretical. ProTreat® uses detailed internals to accurately predict the treating performance of the column. ProTreat® removes the guesswork and allows you to confidently guarantee performance. Whether you\’re designing a new contactor or revamping an existing one, it\’s important to recognize that:

Your internals vendor doesn\’t supply theoretical or ideal stages. They supply steel trays, structured packing in wooden crates, and random packing in bags!
Column internals impact treating performance, not just hydraulics.

In selective treating, over- and under-design can be equally fatal. Avoid uncertainty … Use ProTreat®!


Many parameters can be adjusted in an operating plant to optimize performance. Amine strength, temperature, and solvent circulation rate significantly impact energy consumption. Because of its remarkably high accuracy and its intimate connection with tower internals, ProTreat® very closely predicts plant performance. This makes ProTreat® the ideal tool for optimization both in the design phase and afterwards, when the plant may be running at off-design conditions.

Over time, the condition of your treating solvent will likely not remain pristine, and ProTreat® can also help with reclaiming decisions. ProTreat® can accurately model the effect of sodium and heat stable salts (HSS), allowing you to decide the extent of reclaiming or replacement needed.
