H2S scavengers are used during oil and gas production to remove sour gas. Depending on flow rates and concentration levels, there are a variety of chemicals that can efficiently remove H2S.

Globally, Triazine is the most common chemical to be used for H2S removal, but a new solid scavenger is now available. Discover how SJ Environmental’s Brimbsorb H2S adsorbent compares to triazine.

Brimbsorb is More Efficient at Sour Gas Removal

Most sour gas removal providers using triazine advertise that they guarantee a 20% H2S removal capacity by weight. This efficiency can be higher, but 20% is a benchmark guarantee.

Alternatively, SJ Environmental guarantees a 30% H2S removal capacity by weight under optimal conditions. In recent lab reports, our removal capacity reached the low 40s, and we are continually working to improve absorption rates well beyond our competitors.

Triazine Causes More Downtime

H2S is an extremely corrosive gas. When you sweeten gas with Triazine, it does not remove the HS, it just changes the form of it. This causes issues down the line.

Common issues with Triazine include:

  • Pipeline corrosion
  • Fouling
  • Foaming
  • Scale build-up

Unlike, Triazine, Brimbsorb is a solid scavenger that captures H2S and removes it from the equation. Once the adsorbents reach capacity, they are easily removed and replaced.

Switching to Brimbsorb is Smart

Our change-out costs are lower than most due to the amount of time it takes us, as compared to other scavengers, there is nothing required to do ahead of time.

For triazine scavengers, they might have to come out the night before and spray the spent media down with water. This job prep requires extra crew and equipment to be onsite the night before.

With our solid scavenger change-outs, we clean up spent media during the change out, so your downtime is minimized.
