Economics & Effectiveness of Continuous Removal of Heat Stable Salts & Bicine from Contaminated Amine Solutions in Refineries & Gas Plants
AmiPur™ is a continuous amine purification system. It helps to keep high purify by continuously maintaining low HSS levels. It is simple, small-footprint designed to easily integrate into current plant operations. It can decrease short and long-term maintenance costs, improve performance and decrease corrosion, and ensures reliable operation of amine units with minimal supervision. Read More ›
Application of Advanced Technologies to Enhance Refinery Capability for Processing Opportunity Crudes
Although processing crude of declining quality is a challenge, the risk can be mitigated through the use of a comprehensive study, analysis and treatment of high- risk areas. GE W&PT Technology and Product Application teams have together developed a comprehensive program containing a number of unique and patentable tools that are designed to scientifically monitor and control high temperature corrosion, developed new product for calcium removal and heavy crude oils demulsification. Implementing the program facilitates the processing of opportunity crude oils so that refiners can safely and reliably process opportunity crude oils and enhance their operating margins. Read More ›
Three distinct corrosion mechanisms in one overhead, all mechanisms related to variation in crude types and operating conditions. Each mechanism successfully mitigated using a combination of steps: operational, mechanical and monitoring. Read More ›
Reducing Crude Unit Operation Costs and CO2 Emissions through Managed Crude Blending & Fouling Control
Crude unit preheat exchanger fouling is a common problem throughout the refining industry. This issue results in significantly increased costs due to reduced throughput, cleaning and maintenance, increased fuel usage and excessive CO2 emissions. Predictive ...
Details for materials selection document creation and revision, and materials selection diagram for refinery project are presented. Read More ›
Reducing atmospheric fractionator overhead temperatures to maximise middle distillate production requires a full understanding of resulting corrosion mechanisms. Sustained growth in the demand for jet fuel, diesel and other middle distillate products is expected ...
Catalyst cooling technology for continuous heat removal from the regenerator in maximum propylene operations can avoid damage to FCC catalyst and equipment. Market demand for propylene has placed a strong emphasis on many FCC ...
Extensive troubleshooting efforts determine distinct corrosion mechanisms simultaneously attacking multiple areas of an atmoshpheric tower overhead system.
Optimal operation and chemcial treatment of primary fractionators requires an in-depth knowledge of many parameters. A combination of analytical tools and benchmarking information can help predict fouling severity.
