  • Exchanger leak testing - chemical tracers

    Tracerco has been at the forefront of the development of online leak detection for the last 40 years. The method allows the detection of leaks as small as 0.5%. However, customer demands to measure smaller leaks affecting product quality, has prompted extensive research to develop alternative online methods. Through the development of specialist chemical tracers leaks as small as 0.0001% are readily identified. Project Field Test In the following case study, Exchangers A and ...

  • Making desalter vessels transparent to optimise crude processing

    Making Desalter Vessels Transparent to Optimise Crude Processing... whatever the blend. To improve margins, refiners continuously look to optimise feedstock blends. Variability can bring significant operational challenges during the refining process that must be overcome. One critical need is the efficient removal of solids, salts and water from crude feedstock. This has become increasingly difficult when processing certain opportunity crudes that can have all of these detrimental ...

  • Making the invisible visible

    In FCC Units (Fluidised Catalyst Cracking Units) the atmospheric residue from the distillation is cracked to LPG, naptha and other components. This sometimes leads to “invisible” deposits inside the Riser. This article features Tracerco’s ThruVision™ scans to illustrate how the technology helped the refinery to identify these deposits at an early stage. Bayernoil operates two FCC Units to convert heavy hydrocarbons. In the FCC Unit the feed is injected ...
