Replacement of a gas scrubber
GCM carried out the metallurgical expertise and the process safety management studies.
Following inspections of the scrubber, significant corrosion and severe cracking were found in the cone section. Although corrective measures were taken to extend the life of this pressure vessel, the damage mechanisms had not been fully elucidated by the client.
Total project cost
GCM performed a FEED study to define the project scope of the unit replacement, including the gas scrubber internals.
- FEED report with detailed cost estimate
- Metallurgical evaluation to avoid future cracking and corrosion problems.
- Optimization of scrubber design and sizing
- Constructability study
- Preparation of 3D modeling in a brownfield environment
