eHandbook: Refine Refinery Operations

May 2, 2018

Poorly designed and overly simplistic energy performance indicators often drive energy savings at the expense of product yield or quality. To identify opportunities for substantial reductions in energy consumption in your refining operations, look to modern simulation tools and optimization methods to enable investigating all the potential alternatives for distillation separation sequences and selecting the best sequences.

To help you with opportunities, Chemical Processing has put together an eHandbook. It includes insight on:

  • Save Energy In Distillation -- Revamping may cut consumption considerably
  • EMISs Evolve to See the Bigger Picture -- Adding process considerations improves energy savings and production performance.
  • Consider Liquid Ring Technology for Dry Chlorine Compression -- Liquid ring compressors offer lower cost and other advantages for chlorine processing applications
