Q & A > Question Details
We are suffering from water carryover with tail gases form quench top in tail gas treater unit of Sulphur Recovery Block.
In case of absorber bypass due to S/D of Common Regeneration Unit; tail gases are routed from quench tower top to incinerator which results in water accumulation inside incinerator which is a major problem.
To tackle this it has been planned not to bypass absorber and flow tail gases from absorber without any amine flow.
I wish to know what could be possible ill effect or problems with the same?

Sounds like a good idea to me. The water drawn from the bottom should go to the sour water stripper for safe handling.
