Features and Benefits of ASP gas separation Plants

 

ASP plants  purify  gas with low methane content ASP technology allows for the  exploitation of  gas reserves previously classified as  unsuitable  or  unprofitable.
Economical Sour gas purification ASP Plants allow for a production cost of Less than $2 per thousand cubic feet of gas.
Large production volume Production volumes of  approx. 279,588,951  Gigajoules per Year
Excellent Return on Investment (ROI) Return on Investment of less than 4 yrs.  
Lower maintenance costs When compared to other technologies  and processes such as gaseous diffusion ,gas centrifuge   technology, Vortex tube processes, and Laser Excitation.
Higher Mean Time before failure ASP Plants unlock efficiencies  that result in fewer  plant equipment failures.
Lower energy consumption ASP Plants operate low pressure (+/- 4 bar) and thus require less energy to operate.
Gas is cleaned in a single primary process Single stage separation allows for the Saving of energy and operational costs
Robust plant components Separation plant components can be made from a variety of materials which are corrosion and contamination resistant
ASP Plants operate using a low gas pressure ratio ASP gas pressure ratio is  2-2.5, i.e. the inlet pressure is ~2.5 times the outlet pressure. This results in large energy savings and lower production costs.
ASP plants are not location or climate dependent  ASP Plants can be built  in a variety of climatic regions. ASP technology works at ambient temperatures but can easily be adapted to higher temperatures if the volatility of gas components so demand without any additional energy consumption.
Primary ASP gas  separation  modules are robust ASP Separator modules  are not affected by purification surface interactions  giving the ASP components an extended life span
The ASP Plant separation process is a volume based technique  Other technologies  such as the Membrane and PSA techniques are both surface based processes which are easily poisoned by contaminants which are commonly found in natural gas wells . These contaminants result in the decrease of separation efficiency and can even lead to the destruction of the components.
The ASP plant is more compact  ASP Plants require a smaller  site  footprint than other competitive processing applications
ASP Plants are energy independent  Natural gas from the gas well can be utilised to directly fuel compressors for ASP.  This approach is of great benefit when the gas wells are offshore or in remote areas where electricity supplies are lacking.
No structural deformation of separation components There is no geometrical or structural deformation of the separation components of ASP. The ASP separation components can easily be cleaned and reused. In contrast, the outdated membrane process and PSA separation devices are subjected to both size and geometrical deformation over time.
