Natural Gas

Adsorption Products for the Natural Gas Processing Industry
Zeochem offers a wide range of molecular sieve products for natural gas dehydration and treating to meet final pipeline and Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) quality. Our molecular sieves are effective in removing contaminants during gas processing for equipment protection and for the recovery of Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) products. Plants that use turbo-expansion technology or cryogenic processing to recover heavier components utilize Zeochem molecular sieves to dry their natural gas and be able to reach the required low dew points.

Some examples of the duties that our products and services are used for in Natural Gas processing plants include:

Straight Dehydration: The molecular sieve adsorbents we offer include our well
known Zeochem Z4-04, which is a premium Natural Gas dehydration product
installed in processing plants around the world. Z4-04 was developed with a high
equilibrium capacity for moisture, excellent dynamic characteristics and top
performing hydrothermal stability.

Dehydration with removal of sulphide species: If COS minimization is essential,
or if a minimum co-adsorption of hydrocarbons is required, Zeochem can
design a process and provide a 3A product to meet our customers' specific

Removal of H2O, mercaptans and other sulphur compounds: Zeochem 13X
and 5A products, in combination with our patented process technology, can be
effectively used to sweeten Natural Gas streams in gaseous or liquid

LNG 'peak shaving' dehydration and CO2 removal: Zeochem molecular sieves
and designs are widely used in the cleaning of liquefied natural gas (LNG) when
demand is high and the LNG is ready to go from storage to the grid.

In addition to offering a wide selection of product solutions for the Natural Gas industry, Zeochem's engineers work with engineering firms and end users around the world designing optimized processes, providing support after installation and developing the products of the future.
