Axens’ Experience and Offer
Axens’ experience in arsine removal extend back to the 1970’s with an offer associated with a full range of services including:
- Total arsine analysis in gas or liquid phase
- On site pilot-testing in gas or liquid phase with Axens' Sorbotest™ device
- Identification of alternatives and recommendations for spent sorbent disposal.
The unique properties of lead oxide make AxTrap™ 191 the only high-capacity options on very reactive feeds when copper or nickel-based adsorbents cannot be used. Axens know-how comes mainly from the preparation of the alumina support. The intrinsic properties of alumina are key to enhance mass transfer diffusion and take full advantage of the active phase.
AxTrap™ 192 and 194 work the same way as AxTrap™ 191 but this time the active metal oxide is Copper oxide. Copper oxide has more capacity than lead oxide but to the cost of a higher reactivity towards the feed. Axens will guide you through the right selection of arsine guard to be used to ensure smooth operation and on-spec product.
AxTrap™ 191 is a highly efficient alumina-based material with a highly dispersed metal oxide that removes arsine (AsH3), phosphine (PH3) and sulfur to ppb level from gas and liquid hydrocarbon streams.
AxTrap™ 191 trapping materials have more than 50 references worldwide, currently in operation.
AxTrap™ 191 is a guard bed, which can be used to protect highly sensitive catalysts used to cope with the severe specifications required for the polymer grade base chemical market. The streams to be purified can come from steam crackers, ROG, and methanol to olefins unit.
AxTrap™ 192 is especially designed for arsine, phosphine and H2S removal in order to protect selective hydrogenation catalysts.
AxTrap™ 192 is used on olefinic streams from FCC at moderate temperature, in the absence of MAPD and H2. It is a cost effective product with many references.
AxTrap™ 194 is a new generation and higher capacity adsorbent. AxTrap™ 194 is especially designed for arsine, phosphine and H2S removal in order to protect selective hydrogenation catalysts.
AxTrap™ 194 is used on olefinic streams from FCC at moderate temperature, in the absence of MAPD and H2. It is a cost effective product with many references.
