In this study, the thermal stability and corrosivity of various CO2-loaded tertiary amine blends in both aqueous and non-aqueous form in stainless steel cylinders were studied for combined acid gas and water removal. The thermal stability was measured from the remaining amine concentration and the corrosivity was measured from the amount of various metals in blends using titration and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), respectively. The experimental data were used to calculate the rate constants of amine group loss. The developed model represented the experimental data very well. Solvent change from H2O to triethylene glycol (TEG) in blends decreased the thermal stability and vice versa for corrosivity. The amine stability was increased when contact with stainless steel was reduced. An increase in the amine concentration or CO2 loading at constant temperature decreased the thermal stability and vice versa for corrosivity.
