SELECT Hg–100

SELECT† Hg-100 is a high-capacity, fast-reacting mixed-metal-oxide
absorbent with controlled porosity for improved activity.
This allows for smaller vessels and smaller product volumes in a given process application, providing flexibility in system design.
SELECT Hg-100 is suitable for the removal of mercury from gaseous streams that contain hydrogen sulphide at low temperature.
Desulphurization is achieved by reaction with mixed-metal oxides, forming a stable metal sulphide.
Mercury removal is achieved by chemical reaction of the metal sulphide, forming a stable mercuric sulphide.

Handling and Disposal

SELECT Hg-100 is a mixed-metal-oxide absorbent. Such materials can be handled safely provided that proper safety procedures, such
as permit-to-work systems, and risk assessments, such as a Job Safety Analysis, chemical-handling assessments, lifting studies and
applicable disposal regulations, are followed. It is recommended that an experienced contractor be engaged for product loading and
discharge.
Desulphurization is achieved by reaction with mixed-metal oxides, forming a stable metal sulphide. Mercury removal is achieved by
reaction with the metal sulphide, forming a stable mercuric sulphide. The spent absorbent can be easily and safely recycled through the
metals-recovery industry; the recycling routes are well established. M-I SWACO can facilitate the provision of product-disposal services
if this is required.
Please refer to the relevant Material Safety Data Sheet for further information.
