Oil & Gas

Oil Refining › MEA Unit


The Amine gas treating, also known as gas sweetening, refers to a process that uses aqueous solutions of various alkylamines (commonly known as amines) to remove hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) from gases. Aqueous solutions of MEA (monoethanolamine) are used as a gas stream scrubbing liquid in amine treaters to...

Oil Refining › Naptha Hydrotreater


The Naptha Hydrotreater prepares feedstock for downstream reforming or isomerization. The naphtha feed is mixed with hydrogen rich recycle gas. The mixed feed is then heated and then fed to the reactor, which contains a cobalt-molybdenum or nickel-molybdenum catalyst to convert contaminants such as sulphur, nitrogen, oxygenates and halides ...

Oil Refining › Ethylene Plant


In an Ethylene plant there are multiple stages of compression, kinked with Knock Out Drums before and after the compressors (see below), and also Water Quench and Caustic Scrubbing Towers. The liquid from the Quench Tower is a mixture of oil and water.

PROBLEMS TO SOLVE
a) Prevent...

Steam Boiler

Demisting / Droplet Separation


The primary function of the boiler steam drum is separate water from steam which prevents carryover of the condensate into to the steam header (the separated steam is sent to super heaters and the water is recirculated for conversion to steam with a purity in the range of...

Metal Quenching

Metal Quenching › Fume Abatement



In the metals casting industry there is a need to cool the hot parts by quench cooling them in 180°C  oil baths. Inevitably this causes an oil fume to rise from the bath, which needs to be extracted to a fume treatment system.
PROBLEMS TO SOLVE
Prevent...
