Haldor Topsoe Convection Reformer

Haldor Topsoe Convection Reformer

Challenge: A refinery in Latin America recently upgraded to a new Topsoe hydrotreater. To make the most of the new unit, management needed
to quickly implement a solution for increasing its supply of pure hydrogen. After considering a number of conventional reformer options, the refinery chose a Haldor Topsoe Convection Reformer (HTCR) solution.

Solution: Designed to keep OPEX to a bare minimum, the HTCR concept involves a vertical, refractory-lined vessel containing a tube bundle with several bayonet tubes. Each bayonet tube is surrounded by a flue-gas guiding tube, and the heat flux is adjusted by a proprietary flue-gas control device......

Asphalt Quality Prediction and Control

Asphalt Quality Prediction and Control

With knowledge of heavy vacuum gasoil cut-point and asphalt density, asphalt quality can be inferred. Much has been written about crude column product separation by advanced process control (APC) but very little about vacuum column APC. Why? Vacuum distillation unit separation is important, especially in asphalt mode, when vacuum pitch is sold as a premium product, and controlling asphalt quality is high on the list of economic priorities. One guess is that such APC applications have not been reported because of inability to infer asphalt qualities, and without such inference vacuum column APC would not be effective......
