Heatec Reboiler

Overview

Heatec Reboilers are fired heat exchangers that can be used in systems that process natural gas for pipeline distribution.

Two of these units may be used in a gas processing system. One may be used to regenerate glycol. The other may be used to regenerate amine. When glycol is used to remove moisture from gas the glycol becomes a mixture of glycol and water. It must be regenerated before it can be reused. Regeneration removes the water from the glycol. The reboiler provides heat for this process. Heating the glycol-water mixture vaporizes the water, while the glycol remains mostly liquid. The vapors are usually piped to a distillation column, which recovers glycol that may have vaporized.

When amine is used to remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) from gas, it too must be regenerated before it can be reused. Regeneration removes these contaminants from the amine. The re-boiler provides heat for this process.
