Is there any way of knowing by Amine regenerator inlet or outlet temperatures whether there is a hydrocarbon carryover to system ? Is there any way to just predict foaming tendencies in Regenerator with just temperature profiles across it ?

No. amine degradation products and corrosion particles (solids) and the main causes of foaming. Hydrocarnon carry-over, unless extreme, flashes out immediately and does not cause stable foam. It may cause flooding of feed tray though.
