Hydrogen Sulfide Scavengers

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a pungent, flammable, colorless gas that is very toxic to humans and is extremely corrosive to metal. H2S occurs naturally, but also can be generated by the breakdown of organic compounds by sulfate reducing bacteria.

H2S is soluble in water, oil, and gas and if present in measurable amounts can lead to hazardous environments in separation and sales systems.

The presence of H2S in natural gas at low rates (4 ppm or greater) is deemed “sour” and will not meet sales specifications, which renders it unmarketable.

Hydrogen Sulfide Scavengers are most effective when applied through a “bubble” tower system or by continuous atomized injection.

Because some hydrogen sulfide scavenging materials raise the pH of the water, IMPACT! also provides combination chemistries that incorporate scale inhibitor compounds into the scavenging product.

Benefits of Hydrogen Sulfide Scavenging

  • We can chemically remove H2S and sweeten your gas to maximize production
  • Removal of H2S lowers health and environmental risks and improves safety compliance
  • Improves water quality and reduces line plugging tendencies by preventing iron sulfide generation

IMPACT! can enhance your gas production and lower your bottom line!
