CRU Training, Catalytic Performing Unit (CRU) Process Training covers the catalytic reforming unit process concepts and operations. CRU is critical to the overall economic balance of the modern petroleum refinery. CRU training course has been developed by TONEX to provide an in-depth, yet practical overview of the current technology available in the processing areas of catalytic reforming and Naphtha pretreating. CRU training course will cover topics ranging from the basic process chemistry through commercial unit operations. The interactions between feedstock types, yields, product quality, catalysts, cycle length, and operating process variables will be explained. In addition, unit monitoring, troubleshooting, catalyst regeneration, CRU operation, and process evaluation methods will be discussed.

Objective

A thorough understanding of these principles and techniques is necessary to optimize the performance of the catalytic reformer and, ultimately, to maximize the profitability of the unit.

Audience

This program has been designed for refinery staff involved in catalytic reforming unit operation, process engineering, and unit monitoring. The program will also benefit process R & D personnel, as well as sales and technical service engineers from catalyst suppliers.

Personnel from design and construction companies, process control vendors, and refining equipment suppliers will also find the program beneficial. Participants are invited to bring questions and any non-proprietary operating experiences for discussion during the program and the open forum sessions which are scheduled at the end of each day.
