Methyldiethanolamine (MDEA) has several industrial applications, but the two most common are:

  • Acid Gas Removal: MDEA is a key component in amine scrubbing systems used to capture acidic gases like carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial gas streams. In power plants, for example, MDEA can help remove CO2 from flue gas emissions, contributing to cleaner air.

  • Chemical Synthesis: MDEA is also used as a building block or intermediate in the production of various other chemicals.

Why perform MDEA analysis? There are a couple of reasons:

  • Process Monitoring: In applications like acid gas removal, MDEA concentration is a crucial parameter for optimal system performance. Regularly measuring MDEA levels ensures the scrubbing system functions efficiently and removes the targeted acid gases effectively. Additionally, monitoring MDEA helps identify potential degradation or loss of the chemical over time, allowing for timely maintenance or replenishment.

  • Environmental Monitoring: While MDEA itself isn’t considered highly toxic, it can break down into other potentially harmful compounds. Measuring MDEA in environmental samples (like wastewater) helps assess potential environmental impact from industrial processes that use it. Additionally, amines present in wastewater are a source of nitrogen that can lead to upsets at wastewater treatment.

Measuring MDEA helps ensure smooth operation of industrial processes or monitor potential environmental concerns.

We also offer the ability to measure piperazine in an MDEA mixture.
