According to the statement, Durasorb HG is a non-regenerable, mixed metal oxide adsorbent containing a dispersed and promoted copper sulfide phase.
As a robust adsorbent, it is designed to work in wet conditions. BASF claims that the fast kinetics and maximum mercury penetration enable the most efficient use of the adsorbent bed. According to the statement, the addition of a mercury removal adsorbent complements the Durasorb product line providing complete pretreatment solutions for midstream gas processors and LNG operators including heavy hydrocarbon removal, BTX removal and dehydration.
Detlef Ruff, Senior Vice President Process Catalysts at BASF, said: “This is an exciting time for our Durasorb team. The LNG market is fast growing, and we are poised to provide a broad range of superior solutions to our customers.”
Adrian Steinmetz, Vice President Global Chemical Catalysts and Adsorbents at BASF, added: “BASF is now able to provide the complete LNG pretreatment package, which provides unique advantages over competition and positions BASF as a complete solution provider for our customers.”
