Amine pumps used in the natural gas industry in the 9th South Pars Refinery have been indigenized by domestic engineers, director of the refinery said.
"The pumps, intricate in terms of design and manufacturing and known as the ‘heart of the refinery’, are specifically used in onshore gas sweetening trains," Mohammad Mehdi Hashemi was quoted as saying by IRNA.
There are at least six gas sweetening trains in the gas processing unit and each needs two amine pumps, he added.
“The devices are used to pump amine to the contactor tower in which acid gases such as H2S and/or CO2 are removed from the sour natural gas flowing from offshore facilities.”
