To achieve this, a metal temperature study should be carried out for the design of the pressure parts and for the refractory design.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431697/Determine-the-design-metal-temperature-for-a-secondary-reformer.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTDownstream has good news for 2015http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431293/Downstream-has-good-news-for-2015.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTExtend heat exchanger lifecycle with hyper-duplex stainless steelIntensifying performance demands in refineries, coupled with the ongoing decline in crude oil quality, require a new and improved duplex SS grade to withstand increasingly tough operating conditions. This need has led to the development of hyper-duplex stainless steels.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431644/Extend-heat-exchanger-lifecycle-with-hyper-duplex-stainless-steel.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTHow caustic stress leads to failures of incinerator caustic spray nozzlesFrequent failures of the waste spray nozzles in incinerators result in accelerated degradation of the refractory lining, requiring unscheduled shutdowns for repairs. A study was carried out to identify the factors that contributed to the nozzle failure and to prevent the reoccurrence of similar failures in the future. http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431378/How-caustic-stress-leads-to-failures-of-incinerator-caustic-spray-nozzles.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTHP Industry Metricshttp://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431300/HP-Industry-Metrics.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTImprove the operation of fired heatershttp://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431717/Improve-the-operation-of-fired-heaters.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTLatin America’s refinery product demand is deceleratinghttp://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431298/Latin-Americas-refinery-product-demand-is-decelerating.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTNotables from BP's <i> Energy Outlook 2035</i>http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431302/Notables-from-BPsEnergy-Outlook-2035.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTOptimize online monitoring of base oilhttp://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431821/Optimize-online-monitoring-of-base-oil.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTShale oil characterization optimizes refining processhttp://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431773/Shale-oil-characterization-optimizes-refining-process.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMTUpdate on the catalytic cracking process and standpipes—Part 1http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3431802/Update-on-the-catalytic-cracking-process-and-standpipesPart-1.htmlSun, 01 Mar 2015 00:00:00 GMT2015 outlook for oil price and its refining sector implicationshttp://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3422089/2015-outlook-for-oil-price-and-its-refining-sector-implications.htmlSun, 01 Feb 2015 00:00:00 GMTCase history: Innovative resid-cracking catalyst debottlenecks FCC unithttp://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3422555/Case-history-Innovative-resid-cracking-catalyst-debottlenecks-FCC-unit.htmlSun, 01 Feb 2015 00:00:00 GMTConsider new online analyzers to optimize FCC operationsNuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and near infrared (NIR) process analyzers are highly effective in quantifying physical properties in hydrocarbons, especially where the feedstock, intermediate and final product streams are all interlinked.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3422624/Consider-new-online-analyzers-to-optimize-FCC-operations.htmlSun, 01 Feb 2015 00:00:00 GMTConsider the pros and cons when importing heavy oil for cokersThe recent shift to lighter crudes has starved many US heavy oil units of feed.
