    Applications & Uses

    Product Applications

    JEFFTREAT®M is available within the JEFFTREAT® product line. This solvent is for customers who choose to utilize generic methyl diethanolamine (MDEA) rather than a formulated MDEA solvent.

    Recommended Applications
    • JEFFTREAT® M-510 is a methyldiethanol-amine (MDEA)-based solvent formulated to provide high capacity removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) in applications such as hydrogen production, ammonia manufacture, cryogenic gas processing, and LNG production.
    • The solvent is formulated to allow the most CO2 slip of any JEFFTREAT M-500 series product.
    • It can be used in either gas or liquid treating applications.
    • Compared to the ethanolamines (MEA and DEA) and ethanolamine formulated solvents, JEFFTREAT M-510 solvent allows deep CO2 removal with greater capacity.
    • This deep treat is due to the solvent’s higher reaction rate with CO2 compared to MDEA solvents formulated with ethanolamines. The solvent formulation provides rapid reaction with CO2 while retaining most of the ease of regeneration inherent in MDEA-based solvents.
    • In addition, JEFFTREAT M-510 solvent demonstrates exceptional stability under high temperature and highly loaded conditions.
    • Improved product stability means decreased product degradation resulting in longer solvent life.
    • The JEFFTREAT M-500 Series of products have been commercially demonstrated to solve the problem of soluble metal accumulation, a known weakness of first- and second-generation formulated MDEA products.
    • JEFFTREAT M-510 bulk CO2 solvent should be used where little or no H2S is present or where the mole ratio of CO2 to H2S in the untreated gas is fairly high (>100).

    Storage & Handling

    Handling and Storage Information
    • The handling and storage of JEFFTREAT solvents present no unusual problems.
    • The properties and alkaline nature of JEFFTREAT solvents should be considered when choosing materials of construction.
    • JEFFTREAT solvents should not be stored in tanks made from zinc, galvanized steel, or copper and its alloys since the solvent will react with copper to form complex salts.
    • Also avoid the use of elastomers such as Buna N, Viton, Neoprene and nitrile as these materials tend to swell when exposed to the amine. Kalrez 1050 LF performs satisfactorily in amine service as well as materials made from polypropylene and Teflon®.
    • A carbon steel storage tank, constructed according to a recognized code, is generally satisfactory.
    • Carbon steel transfer lines, joined by welds or flanges, are suitable. Screw joints are subject to failure unless back-welded.
    • Flexitallic® gaskets work well for flanged connections. For pumps, a Durametallic Type RO-TT mechanical seal, or equivalent is suitable.
