Many times, process systems will fail to recognize when the Degasification or Decarbonation system is failing or under performing. One critical signal that can be used as a verification is when a process also utilizes Amine in the downstream treatment the consumption rate will increase which can drastically increase operational cost. When a packed column tower begins to fail it can be associated with fouled media, a failed distribution system, plugged intake vents, or a failed or failing blower. Often in high noise environments it is difficult to notice if a belt has broken or slipped on a Decarbonation blower and the control room may still be showing that the blower motor is operational.
However, the air flow has ceased and the removal efficiency of the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) has decreased. Frequent inspections are needed to assure performance with routine inspections and cleaning of the internals.
