Hydrotreating

The key to optimizing a hydroprocessing unit is to maximize the life of the catalyst bed and increase energy efficiency of the furnaces. Our goal is to eliminate fouling of the catalyst bed by particles and aqueous fluids and the dissolved components within them as well as fouling of hydrogen recovery membranes and furnace-burner tips.

In working with many refineries to optimize their hydroprocessing systems, Pentair found several areas which were detrimental to effective optimization of the system:

  • Fouling of catalyst bed by particles
  • Fouling of catalyst bed by aqueous fluids and the dissolved components within them
  • Fouling of hydrogen recovery membranes
  • Fouling of furnace burner-tips
