NUSORB® CR adsorbent has proven performance for removing H2S, CS2, light mercaptans, i-Propyl mercaptan, t-Butyl mercaptan, sulfides, disulfides, COS, SO2, and H2Se (hydrogen selenide) from gases including 100% CO2 gas, and from hydrocarbon liquids. This adsorbent was specially developed for removing sulfur compounds from streams that do not contain oxygen, but it also works well in air. Maximum adsorption capacity for removal of sulfur compounds from hydrocarbon or inert gases, is 3 wt.%, as S. This adsorbent can be regenerated by superheated steam at 300-400 °C, followed by a N2 + O2 sweep to reactivate the impregnant to its active form. The steam cycle removes recoverable sulfur from the carbon. The impregnant in NUSORB® CR adsorbent is non-corrosive.

Providing Solutions to remove mercury for emission control, corrosion prevention and catalyst protection.

Selective Adsorption Associates, Inc. (SAA) offers over 40 years of experience in Process Engineering of Adsorption Systems for Gas and Liquid Drying, Sulfur Compound Removal, Emission Control, and over 20 years of Process Design experience in Mercury Removal Systems.

CAUTION: Wet activated carbon removes oxygen from air. Thus, an asphyxiation hazard exists inside enclosed spaces containing activated carbon. Use appropriate safety precautions when entering vessels or other enclosed spaces containing activated carbon. Exposure to strong acids and oxidizers can cause formation of toxic H2S gas.
