Abstract : An appartatus and process for removing contaminants in a gas through absorption in a liquid absorbent is provided wherein the apparatus comprises a first tube having a gas inlet for receiving a contaminant enriched gas and an outlet, and a second tube for transporting a liquid absorbent having a liquid outlet communicating with said gas inlet for introducing said liquid absorbent into said first tube, whereby said liquid absorbent and said contaminant enriched gas are contacted concurrently in said first tube to form a contaminant enriched liquid absorbent and a contaminant depleted gas. Preferably a section of the tube is disposed along the outer surface of the first tube and an outer tube surrounds the first tube encasing the section of the second tube. In the process of this invention, a contaminant enriched gas is introduced into the gas inlet of the first tube and is contacted concurrently with a thin, moving layer of liquid absorbent introduced to the gas inlet via the second tube. The so-formed contaminant enriched liquid absorbent and contaminant depleted gas is withdrawn from the outlet and separated in a separation vessel after which the liquid absorbent may be analyzed.
