  • Cyanide corrosion causes costly upsets

    Refinery cyanides cause considerable corrosion, hydrogen blistering and waste water treatment problems. The majority of refinery cyanides are formed in the reactor of fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units. All of the gas from the reactor, including the cyanide, is carried overhead into the distillation column, where water is injected into the overhead stream to control corrosion problems. The resulting sour water is separated from the hydrocarbon products at various stages in ...

  • Drizo™ the best available glycol dehydration process

    Drizo™ regenerates the glycol by solvent stripping instead of the conventional gas stripping. Solvent stripping allows to obtain much higher glycol purities than gas stripping (up to 99.998 wt% instead of the typical 99.95 wt%) and consequently allows to get much larger water dew point depressions: up to 100°C (180°F) and even higher in some cases. The solvent required by the Drizo™ process is usually obtained from the BTEX present in the natural gas itself ...

  • Dynawave® reverse jet scrubber

    How a reverse jet wet gas scrubber works.
