Hengyuan Refining Company selects technology fom Honeywell
Honeywell announced today that Malaysia-based Hengyuan Refining Company Bhd. (HRC) has started Honeywell UOPâ€™s modular Chlorsorbâ„˘ technology as part of a revamp of its existing UOP CCR Platformingâ„˘ unit to help it comply with new clean air regulations.
Located in HRCâ€™s facility in Port Dickson, Malaysia, the modular ChlorsorbTM unit is the first retrofit in the world involving such a modular unit into an existing CCR Platforming unit.
The UOP Chlorsorb technology achieves up to 99% chloride removal efficiency, eliminates the need for caustic scrubbing, and reduces operating cost of a CCR Platforming unit. The technology was first commercialized in 1997 and today is operational in 95 units worldwide.
â€śThe Chlorsorb technology simplifies operations, reduces maintenance and largely eliminates treatment of liquid and hazardous waste,â€ť said Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager, UOP Process Technologies. â€śCustomers such as HRC are interested in Chlorsorb because itâ€™s a proven system that effectively removes chloride while helping them meet clean air regulations.â€ť
In addition to technology licensing, UOP delivered the technology in pre-fabricated equipment modules and upgraded the control system. UOP has more than 30 yearsâ€™ experience providing process units in modular form, and provides an economical solution for units that donâ€™t have the space or equipment to fully incorporate it into an existing unit.
The UOP Chlorsorb technology is a cost-effective and efficient alternative to traditional caustic scrubbing of chloride which is used to maintain dispersion of the Platforming catalyst during regeneration. As a result, it enables a refinery to eliminate the use and disposal of caustic and to significantly reduce consumption of organic chloride in the operation of a continuous catalyst regeneration, or CCR, system.
Hengyuan Refining Company, formerly known as the Shell Refining Company, (Federation of Malaya) Berhad ("SRC"), is a Malaysian-based producer and refiner of petroleum products. These include liquefied petroleum gas, naphtha, gasoline, mixed aromatics, gas oil, jet kerosene and fuel oil components.
