Hydrocracker Economics with Improved Hydrocracking Catalysts
8 December 2019

The current low margin refining environment is driving refiners to improve returns on their existing assets by manufacturing higher-quality products at a more competitive cost. Refiners are seeking ways to run their hydrocracking units at higher capabilities and realize more benefit from their investment – or both. Heide Refinery’s Head of Technology and Energy Department, Mrs. Ulrike Vollrath, and Honeywell UOP’s Principal Hydroprocessing Technology Specialist, Mr. Rajesh Sivadasan, provide a case study examining how Heide Refinery replaced their catalyst with a combination of hydrotreating and hydrocracking catalysts and achieved their business objectives.

The "True Zero Leakage" Modulating Pilot
2 December 2019

The EPA has estimated that approximately 70,367 tons per year of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and 9,357 tons per year of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) have been emitted from equipment [including valves] leaks. As our world is increasingly focused on the identification and eradication of fugitive emissions, the valve industry has a duty to engineer new products in support of this movement. This paper will explore the importance of, and how to achieve, True Zero Leakage with Modulating Pilot Operated Pressure Relief Valves at high operating pressures made possible by advanced bolt-on modulator technology.

Overview of the Requirements of Industry Standards for the Repair of Corroded Pipework Using Composite Materials
13 November 2019

Fibre reinforced polymer composites are being used increasingly to protect and repair corroded steel pipes and structures. ISO 24817 and ASME PCC-2 Article 401 have been published to guide the supplier and operator in the use of composite repairs and have enabled reliable and safe applications of the technology. This paper provides a deep dive into the following topics and provides examples of how these requirements have been met in practice. The requirements of ISO 24817 and ASME PCC-2 Article 401, include: • Validation testing for repair systems • Design for specific applications • Training of installers • Control of installation on site
