Choosing the best adsorbent for hydrogen sulfide (H2S) removal from natural gas is serious business. The intrinsic corrosivity and extreme health hazards that exist when processing gas streams containing hydrogen sulfide can negatively affect your profitability. Chemical Products Industries’ SULFURTRAP® EX is a proven, cost-effective, environmentally friendly adsorbent for H2S removal that you can count on.
SULFURTRAP® EX is an extended life H2S adsorbent media that removes both hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and mercaptans. It has a high sulfur-loading capacity and free-flowing characteristics which result in an increased bed life and reduced maintenance and replacement costs. So you get efficient, long-lasting hydrogen sulfide removal from natural gas!
Compared to other H2S adsorbents, SULFURTRAP® EX lasts longer. It provides hydrogen sulfide gas removal up to 2-3 times longer than the leading solid scavenger, significantly reducing treating costs. In fact, it is proven around the world to offer the lowest $/MCF treating cost for low-temperature H2S removal applications. SULFURTRAP® EX operates efficiently in a broad range of conditions, including water-saturated gas, dry gas, and gas streams containing oxygen. So regardless of your gas stream, you get consistent spec level hydrogen sulfide removal from biogas.
SULFURTRAP® EX provides hydrogen sulfide gas removal as well as mercaptan removal with lower maintenance and replacement costs. Because of its free-flowing characteristics, SULFURTRAP® EX hydrogen sulfide adsorbent can often be replaced in half the time it takes to replace other solid-based H2S scavenger media. Easy.
SULFURTRAP® EX is an iron based scavenger. It is also referred to as a fixed-bed or solid type scavenger. It is not a liquid scavenger such as triazine, but often can be used in place of liquid scavenger systems.
Yes. SULFURTRAP® EX physical properties such as surface area, pore structure, and shape have been designed specifically for use in gas phase sulfur removal applications.
Yes. SULFURTRAP EX is a solid pellet type material with high sulfur adsorption capacity.
Yes. SULFURTRAP® EX is based upon patented, concentrated iron oxide based chemistry.
No. SULFURTRAP® EX works across a broad range of process conditions from aerobic to anaerobic and from fully saturated to partial saturation to dry conditions.
Due to its general non-hazardous characteristic, SULFURTRAP® EX can be disposed of in landfills following local and state regulations and should be qualified appropriately before final disposal. More details can be found in the SULFURTRAP® EX PDS and SDS.
SULFURTRAP® EX is unique in its category not only due to the high purity and non-hazardous nature of the raw materials used in its production, but also due to its high flexibility or broad range of usage.
AN INSATIABLE APPETITE FOR H2S AND LIGHT MERCAPTAN SULFUR COMPOUNDS.
“We rely on SULFURTRAP® EX and Chemical Products Industries’ expertise for reliable, cost-effective H2S removal from natural gas. Any processor concerned with safety and economics should do the same.”

FIELD PROVEN H2S REMOVAL FOR MULTIPLE INDUSTRY APPLICATIONS
SULFURTRAP® EX is effective across a wide variety of global upstream, midstream and downstream natural gas processing:
In typical configurations, SULFURTRAP® EX is loaded into a single vertical vessel, a lead-lag vessel configuration or a parallel vessel configuration where gas or vapor flows through the vessel. The sulfur compounds chemically react with SULFURTRAP® EX to form a safe, stable, non-hazardous byproduct. Depletion of the SULFURTRAP® EX H2S removal adsorbent is dependent only upon the concentration of hydrogen sulfide and flow rate through the bed. SULFURTRAP EX® works in partially saturated to fully water saturated, aerobic or non-aerobic environments.
