Brimstone Sulfur Symposium - Vail

September 9 through 13, 2013

The Brimstone Sulfur Symposia are widely recognized as highly interactive and productive gatherings for discussion of sulfur recovery and treating.  The Vail Symposium's goals are to provide information aimed at improving the operating reliability, efficiency, and safety of sulfur processing units while minimizing operating costs. These are accomplished through presentation of relevant technical papers and sharing of information through informal open floor discussions along with extensive Question and Answer sessions.  This symposium will be valuable to everyone interested in furthering their knowledge of currently used processes and equipment, new technologies, and best practices for operation of amine, SWS, Claus sulfur recovery, and tail gas units.

The Vail Sulfur Recovery Symposium is held every September in Vail, Colorado at the Sonnenalp Resort.



Important Announcement:

Brimstone is pleased to announce an important half day seminar titled, "Meeting Challenges in Gas Treating - State of the Art" presented by Optimized Gas Treating, a highly respected amine services firm that offers software and consulting for amine treating. This session will focus on:
