Catalyst passivation for safer, more efficient turnarounds

Catalyst passivation for safer, more efficient turnarounds

Eliminating inert entry for catalyst changeout in a hydrocracker. Since hydrotreating and hydrocracking were introduced to the refining industry in the mid-20th century, it has always been a struggle to safely remove the catalyst from the reactors. These catalysts typically contain a combination of molybdenum or tungsten with nickel or cobalt. The catalysts are manufactured as stable metal oxides. During the activation process, the metal oxides are converted to sulphides. These metal sulphides are very reactive and, when exposed to air, can spontaneously ignite. This not only creates a fire hazard but can also release toxic sulphur dioxide, making it difficult to remove them safely from reactors......

Refining India 2018

Growth in India’s demand for oil products will outstrip the rest of the world during the next 25 years, according to a recent focus report from the International Energy Agency. In response, India’s government concedes that even faster growth in refining capacity is essential to keep pace with domestic demand. This will mean more and bigger refineries, integrated with petrochemicals production and geared to the highest international standards of clean fuels to combat urban pollution......
