 Crystaphase There Is No Magic Behind Reactor Performance

Crystaphase There Is No Magic Behind Reactor Performance

It’s not magic. It’s science. Hydroprocessors know the wall that lies between them and peak reactor performance. Fouling, pressure drop, precipitation, agglomeration, polymerization, and catalyst deactivation, these obstacles build up, block by block. We help you break through that wall, clearing your path to performance......

Wastewater Treatment For Challenging Crudes

Wastewater Treatment For Challenging Crudes

A new organic polymer treatment has enabled refiners to more effectively process a variety of opportunity crudes. Many refiners have the opportunity to purchase challenging crudes at discount pricing. Unfortunately, processing these crudes often leads to additional problems in the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP).

In WWTPs, these opportunity crudes bring increased concentrations of contaminants such as oil entrained solids and heavy metals that create new bottlenecks. For instance, up to half of the total solids entering WWTPs from these crudes can be less than 0.45μ in size.......
