In any of the 5 star hotels. The exact venue will be informed once finalized.

This course will guide the participants to develop key concepts and techniques to operate, select and optimize refinery catalytic processes. These key concepts can be utilized to make design and operating decisions. Training and development is an investment in future success gives yourself and your employees the keys to success. 

This course covers a general overview of the Catalytic Processes in a Refinery and how each integrates with the high value products, with a special emphasis on Fluidized Catalytic Crackers, Catalytic Reformers and Hydro-processing. A history of each Catalytic Process will be reviewed including; process description, process variables, reaction chemistry, catalyst development and evaluation.

Objective

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will have:

  • An overview of the Catalytic Processes in a Refinery, with a special emphasis on Fluidized Catalytic Crackers, Hydro treaters, Hydrocracking and Catalytic Reformers.
  • Catalyst Evaluation Techniques
  • An understanding of Reactor and Catalyst interaction
  • The operation, control and troubleshooting of a reactor and associated equipment
  • An overview of reactors, practical solutions as well as theory
  • An understanding of essential reaction concepts
  • Valuable practical insights for trouble-free design and field proven techniques for commissioning, start up and shutdown of reactor operations
  • Understand how to tailor your approach to specific design, analysis and troubleshooting problems.
  • What can be done in-house and what can be done with specialist software.
Audience
  • Process Engineers, Operation Engineers, Process Support Personnel, Chemist, and Managers
  • People who are making day to day decisions regarding operation, design, maintenance, and economics of process industry plants.
  • An engineer or chemist who must troubleshoot and solve catalyst problems in a plant, an engineering office or laboratory.
  • Engineering graduates/technologists who will be using catalyst in their daily work.
  • Technical Process engineers doing process design and optimization projects and studies that need who need advanced skills for more complex modeling tasks.
  • Plant Operation Support Engineers checking plant performance under different operating conditions, and who are involved in design of new facilities or revamps of existing facilities.
  • Ideal for veterans and those with only a few years of experience who want to review or broaden their understanding of process safety.
  • Other professionals who desire a better understanding of the subject matter.
