Energy savings opportunities in unifining, CCR and benzene removal units

Opportunities are always available to decrease energy consumption in process units.

Kahraman, K., Tüpraş

Opportunities are always available to decrease energy consumption in process units. Unifining, continuous catalytic reforming (CCR) and benzene removal units are particularly well suited for such projects. Some operational changes—and therefore, some investment—may be necessary to reduce the energy consumption of these units. Reducing column overhead pressure The unifining unit’s main objective is to minimize the sulfur content of heavy naphtha from crude oil and other units. This is accomplished with the use of catalyst under a hydrogen medium. Sulfur is converted into hydrogen sulfide (H2S) with the help of catalyst. Some catalyst can crack the feed and, as a result, liquefied petroleum
