This process enables the removal of mercury from LPG naphtha and natural gas condensates to 1 ppb level without the need for hydrogen. Applications include mercury removal at wellheads treatment for ethylene production and catalytic reforming. This process could realize lower CAPEX and OPEX compared with conventional processes. The process consists of the three processes Process A Process B and Process C. Process A includes adsorption Process B includes decomposition and adsorption and Process C includes decomposition stripping and adsorption. An optimum process is chosen based on the customer's conditions and requirements. Even a feed containing organic mercury or ionic mercury is treatable by adopting Process A or Process B.
(1)Removal of any types of mercury is possible by selecting an optimum process. (2)High-performance adsorbent achieves mercury removal to less than 1 ppb. (3)Unlike other processes hydrogen is not used for decomposition of mercury compounds and thereby the process is more economical.; 12 units of Process A 2 units of Process B and 2 units of Process C
