The need for filtration systems in scrubbing units has been well documented. Filtration provides the benefits of reduced hot spots in the regenerator reboiler, reduced heat exchanger fouling and reduction of foaming in the absorbers. This paper discusses thin-cake candle filter technology that is used to remove trace amounts of solid contaminant fines from the recirculating fluid stream. These contaminants originate from various sources and are generally less than 3 - 5 microns in size, which makes their removal very difficult. Candle filter technology and the process of thin-cake building, is a new approach that is employed for high-efficiency and cost-effective fines removal.
