EATON ClearAmine self-cleaning systems are a sustainable solution that’s cost effective, operator safe, with less environmental impact. Pipe scale, rust, iron sulfide, sand and other solids build-up in closed-loop amine systems fouling flash drums, heat exchangers, strippers, re-boilers, and carbon filters. They also attract hydrocarbons, which cause system foaming. ClearAmine self-cleaning systems provide an efficient method of removing harmful solids to protect and extend equipment life, and maximize amine systems’ effectiveness. When used alongside of disposable bag or cartridge equipment, the life of the filter media is greatly extended.
EATON ClearAmine Features & Benefits
Reduce Operating Expenses
Disposable media equipment may be initially less expensive but the costs quickly multiply – even short term. With the EATON ClearAmine automated self-cleaning system there are no bags or cartridges to purchase, no material to inventory and track, no hazardous waste landfill fees, and greatly reduced maintenance and handling costs. Over a 10-year period, almost a 60% savings compared to a disposable media system can be recognized.
Increase Plant Safety
Minimize or eliminate exposure to hydrogen sulfide and other dust and fumes, because there are no cartridges or bags to change out. Lower labor interaction will contribute to the safety of operations.
Improve Filter Productivity
Continuous amine filtration is achieved through a slipstream process on single unit systems. For larger or more complex operations, Eaton provides a multi-bank configuration that enhances amine filtration. The level of contaminants within the amine solution is maintained at a specified limit to protect online equipment without compromising productivity.
Decrease Carbon Footprint
The EATON ClearAmine system provides an opportunity to be proactive concerning environmental stewardship. The self-cleaning filter uses no cartridges or bags that can contribute to the ever-increasing content of landfills. Businesses can reduce the environmental impact of gasses associated with the decomposition of spent material.
Cut Labor Cost
Engineered with superior mechanical integrity, the ClearAmine System provides for enhanced serviceability, reduced maintenance, and zero downtime costs. The near fully automated system keeps the level of operator interaction to a minimum.
