The RZMS for the DuPont™ STRATCO® Contactor™ reactor allows operators to measure sulfuric acid to hydrocarbon ratio and sulfuric acid strength in the Contactor™ reactor more effectively than a typical ratio glass and acid sampling system assembly. The DuPont RZMS combines the features ...
Reduce acid carry, acid consumption and avoid downstream equipment failures due to acid corrosion. Following the success of integrating coalescing media throughout the alkylation unit, DuPont has now successfully incorporated coalescing media in the STRATCO® acid settler vessels. Existing acid settler ...
Partnerships for net effluent and propane treating using liquid-liquid separation and static mixing process technologies. Sulfuric acid alkylation unit treating system performance is critical for effective fractionation and unit reliability. Proper treating results in optimum fractionation and, therefore, ...
The DuPont/Aggreko alliance delivers unique and comprehensive temperature control solutions. In the sulfuric acid alkylation unit, the number one challenge is temperature control. The combined “know how” and global network of sales, engineering and technical support staff at DuPont and Aggreko ...
The STRATCO® XP2 technology is a Contactor™ reactor enhancement developed to improve the acid/hydrocarbon emulsion flow path near the tube bundle end of the Contactor. In the current design, emulsion flow leaves the annulus between the Contactor™ shell wall and circulation tube, then ...
A commitment to innovation research and development. DuPont recognizes that continued improvement of the STRATCO® alkylation technology is critical to our customers’ success. As such, DuPont has a dedicated team of scientists and engineers focused on alkylation R&D at the STRATCO® Alkylation ...
Optimise heat transfer distribution and increase heat transfer for improved performance. 3/4” tube bundle: the ¾” tube bundle was developed in response to a desire to increase Contactor™ capacity by increasing the amount of heat transfer surface area available for a given Contactor™ ...
