Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Scavenger

SULFURTRAP® is an iron oxide based fixed bed hydrogen sulfide scavenger (H2S) used to selectively remove H2S and other light sulfur compounds from gas and liquid hydrocarbons in batch processing applications. SULFURTRAP® economically eliminates H2S through a safe, effective, environmentally friendly process and is applicable across a wide range of applications and process conditions.

Patented and used commercially around the world, SULFURTRAP® H2S scavenger offers high sulfur loading capacity, long bed life and low treating cost. In addition, its unique physical properties allow the media to remain free-flowing in its used (spent) form, making bed replacement fast and easy.


SULFURTRAP® has an insatiable appetite for H2S, easily achieving <1 ppm H2S regardless of inlet concentration. SULFURTRAP® maintains <1 ppm outlet H2S levels for extended periods of time.


  • Easily achieves outlet H2S <1 ppm
  • High H2S loading capacity
  • Minimal replacement time / free flowing
  • Reliably low ∆P
  • Works in H2O saturated or dry gas conditions
  • Reduced workload and waste
  • Works over broad range of process conditions


In typical configurations, the SULFURTRAP® H2S scavenger can be loaded into a single vertical vessel, a lead-lag vessel configuration or a parallel vessel configuration. Hydrogen sulfide compounds chemically react with SULFURTRAP® to form a safe, stable iron sulfide. Depletion of the hydrogen sulfide scavenger bed is dependent only upon the concentration of hydrogen sulfide and flow rate through the bed.

Proprietary process modeling tools allow Chemical Products technical engineers the ability to quickly and accurately design SULFURTRAP processes for new and/or existing applications. SULFURTRAP can be used to replace liquid hydrogen sulfide scavenger systems and can also be used as a drop-in replacement for existing fixed bed processes.
