  • Tru-Grid™ Scan

    What does a Tru-Grid™ Scan do? A Tru-Grid™ Scan of a packed distillation tower provides a density profile of the process inside the tower. The power of the technology is that the scan is done whilst the tower is operating so real-time information about how the tower is performing at that instant is obtained. The scan ‘sees through’ the vessel wall allowing determination of what is happening inside without the need to shut down. The scan produces a density profile of the ...

  • SOxMASTER-2™

    Optimal SOx reduction without rare earth for partial- and full-burn units. SOx reduction additives are designed to capture and remove the oxidized sulfur compounds present in the FCC unit regenerator and release them in the FCC riser. On release, the sulfur exits the FCC unit as hydrogen sulfide along with the cracked products in the reactor effluent. The hydrogen sulfide is processed in the gas plant downstream of the FCC unit. Extensive studies in the 1970s looked at the ...

  • Designing deepcut vacuum units that really work

    Every barrel of vacuum gas oil (VGO) you can save from being reduced to coke in the delayed coker unit is a barrel more that can go to the FCCU. That’s a good reason to raise HVGO cutpoint. But how to do it? Some people think the job can be done just by running computer models in the engineering office, relying on vendors and their data sheets for a clue to true equipment performance. Experience, however, shows it just ain't so. For either a grass roots project or a revamp, ...

  • Laby®-GI

    The Laby®-GI has a fully balanced design that eliminates unbalanced moments and forces, so it can be used on offshore vessels and installations. The Laby®-GI Compressor is mostly used for compression of LNG boil-off gas and it features the proven labyrinth sealing system, widely acknowledged for its extremely high reliability and unexcelled availability. Maximized operational flexibility in boil-off gas applications is achieved due to the use of temperature insensitive, ...

  • KDSOx™

    Cost-effective SOx reduction solution for full-combustion FCC units. Reducing SOx emissions has become increasingly challenging in many parts of the world. Depending on the location, SOx emission limits are defined at the refinery level as bubble limits; at the individual emissions source; or, in some cases, by the concentrations in the atmosphere in the vicinity. In light of these challenges, many refineries have successfully used SOx additives for reducing overall sulfur ...

  • Optimus™

    Bulk level and interface measurement. Optimus™ is designed for liquid level, interface and solids monitoring in upstream and downstream vessels. Optimus™ is suitable for bulk level measurement in the most challenging oil, chemical and petrochemical industry applications, including those with the potential for solids deposition and extremes of temperature and pressure. Key features - Advanced signal processing - Interchangeable components for easy on-site maintenance - ...

  • Avoid fired heater coking

    For many refiners, heater coking in Crude and Vacuum Distillation Units (CDU/VDUs) is a common occurrence. Many units around the world are shut down every two years, every year, or even every six months to deal with chronic heater coking. However, with the right design features driven by a solid understanding of heater coking mechanisms, fired heater run length can be extended beyond five years, even with relatively challenging crudes. The two primary drivers of heater tube ...

  • SMOOTHFLOW™ FCC additive

    SMOOTHFLOW from Albemarle offers a solution to FCC unit fluidization and circulation problems. Fluidization problems sometimes begin suddenly, often as the result of an unexpected process upset causing significant catalyst losses and possibly mechanical damage inside the unit. The finest catalyst particles in the circulating inventory are usually lost first, which results in a sharp increase in the equilibrium catalyst average particle size, Figure 1 In other cases, fluidization ...

  • Minimize recycle and coke carryover with the coker main fractionator washspray header design

    Coker Main Fractionator flash zone design is critical to reliable operation of the column and maintaining product quality. This section commonly experiences problems related to the presence of unstable heavy liquid and carryover of solids. Successful operation often hinges on the design of the wash liquid distributor. Although Sulzer utilizes several styles of wash liquid distributors, this bulletin focuses on the spray header design. The spray distributor design is a careful ...
