Removing Acid Gas and Carbonyl Sulfide from Hydrocarbon Streams
AMINEX™ | Amine Extraction of Contaminants
Developed by Merichem®, AMINEX™ is a proven technology for the removal of acid gas (H2S) and carbonyl sulfide (COS) from LPG-type liquid and gas streams.
Both technologies use Merichem’s FIBER FILM® Contactor device for mass transfer, with the appropriate amine as the treating reagent.
AMINEX™ technology, used with Merichem’s proprietary FIBER FILM® Contactor, helps our clients in a number of ways:
- Reduced capital expenditures
- Less plant space required compared to other treating alternatives
- Faster and more efficient mass-transfer process
- Proven technology
FFC Plus™ Technology
The latest iteration of Merichem’s FIBER FILM® Contactor technology, FFC Plus™ can increase hydrocarbon treating rates by up to 150 percent as compared to earlier designs.

How It Works
Increasing the liquid surface area with Merichem’s FIBER FILM® Contactor provides a much more efficient process of mass transfer, optimizing AMINEX™ technology. Better yet, there’s little to no emulsification, carryover or high-pressure drop during phase transfer.
