The petroleum industry uses desulfurization technology as a primary process for quality improvement to meet final fuel specifications as well as feed preparation for many intermediate processing units. This course covers the core elements of desulfurization technology. Key variables that affect product yields and properties are described and their impact on the optimization of the unit operation is discussed. A framework is presented for troubleshooting operating problems and, throughout this discussion, participants are encouraged to describe their specific challenges. The scope of the course includes the core of most Hydrotreating problems and attempts to cover solutions useful to design and operating engineers. Concerns associated with processing for clean fuels are covered. This course will provide an overview of the diverse nature of the desulfurization processes, depending on the feedstocks used, products made and the environmental issues. It will address process integration issues, which are vital for economic viability.
The course includes practical worked examples and case studies to reinforce the key learning.
Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained a solid understanding of the key elements associated with the design, operation and troubleshooting of desulfurization units. This will include the impact of feed quality, catalyst, operating conditions and unit design on product qualities. In addition they will have gained some valuable insight into how to optimize, debottleneck and troubleshoot their desulfurization units.
The desulfurization technology is a comprehensive core skills course for professionals dealing with all aspects of the Hydrotreating units. The course will be highly valuable to all engineers involved in the operation and design of Hydrotreating facilities. Additionally, the course will be useful to any technical personnel wishing to gain a perspective of how desulfurization fits into the operation of a complete refining plant. Those who are experienced in other fields and seek a review of the fundamentals of desulfurization technology will also find this course most beneficial.
