Continuous Regenerative (moving bed) CCR Platforming – UOP Process. In this process, three or four reactors are installed one on the top of the other. Our Garden City RF2 fans are perfect for Continuous Catalyst Regeneration in oil refineries. We set the standards for the chlorination and regeneration blowers. This course provides an overview of the CCR Platforming unit with a CycleMax or pressurized regenerator. The principles of catalyst regeneration and.

Garden City Fans Our fans have set the standard in high temperature applications.
Some catalytic reforming units have an extra spare or swing reactor and each reactor can be individually isolated so that any one reactor can be undergoing in situ regeneration while the other reactors are in operation. Various bearing lubrication methods are available for the monoblock bearing assembly including static oil, forced lubrication, or oil mist lubrication.
The bottoms product from the stabilizer is the high-octane liquid reformate that will become a component of the refinery’s product gasoline.
The first unit operation in a refinery is the continuous distillation of the petroleum crude oil being refined. Instead, when needed, the aged catalyst was replaced by fresh catalyst and the platformnig catalyst was shipped to catalyst manufacturers to be either regenerated or to recover the platinum content of the aged catalyst. Retrieved from ” https: As a charter member of AMCA, Howden has contributed to setting many of the standards used throughout the industry today.
The platforimng flow diagram below depicts a typical semi-regenerative catalytic reforming unit.
Continuous Catalyst Regeneration (CCR) Platforming.
Our fans are designed by a team of highly experienced engineers and designers, and are manufactured by our network of qualified manufacturing partners. The Quality Assurance team works independently from our manufacturing group to ensure autonomy. The noble metals platinum and rhenium are considered to be catalytic sites for the dehydrogenation reactions and the chlorinated alumina provides the acid sites needed for isomerization, cyclization and hydrocracking reactions.
Many of the earliest catalytic reforming units in the s and s were non-regenerative in that they did not perform in situ catalyst regeneration. The manufacturing process is initiated by a testing and traceability procedure used to check the quality of the alloy rich materials used to fabricate your fans for conventional and high pressure catalyst regeneration process fans. As stated earlier herein, semi-regenerative catalytic reformers are regenerated about once per 6 to 24 months. Catalytic reforming has a limited ability to process naphthas with a high content of normal paraffins, e.
The most commonly used type of catalytic reforming unit has three reactorseach with a fixed bed of catalyst, and all of the catalyst is regenerated in situ during routine catalyst regeneration shutdowns which occur approximately once each 6 to 24 months.

The hot reaction products from the third reactor are partially cooled by flowing through the heat exchanger where the feed to the first reactor is preheated and then flow through a water-cooled heat exchanger before flowing through the pressure controller PC into the gas separator. A side reaction is hydrogenolysiswhich produces light hydrocarbons of lower value, such as methaneethanepropane and butanes. The catalyst regeneration process allows continuous regeneration of a controlled quantity of catalyst and is used for reforming applications by refineries.
This process is quite different from and not to be confused with the catalytic steam reforming process used industrially to produce products such as hydrogenammoniaand methanol from natural gasnaphtha or other petroleum-derived feedstocks.
The dehydrogenation also produces significant amounts of byproduct hydrogen gas, which is fed into other refinery processes such as hydrocracking.
Reformate can be blended directly in the gasoline pool but often it is separated in two or more streams. This section needs expansion. Our engineering staff has many years of fan experience, as well as a thorough knowledge of materials and stress analysis to select the correct product for each application. If you would like to submit an enquiry please get in touch. Catalyst’s cycle duration is also very dependent on the quality of the feedstock. Most catalysts require both sulphur and nitrogen content to be lower than 1 ppm.
Every Garden City high temperature fan supplied by Howden is thoroughly inspected and tested. The reformate has a much higher content of benzene than is permissible by the current regulations in many countries. A petroleum refinery includes many unit operations and unit processes. The resulting liquid—gas mixture is preheated by flowing through a heat exchanger.
The benzene extracted can be marketed as feedstock for the chemical industry. Llatforming is the straight-run heavy naphtha that is usually processed in a catalytic reformer because the light naphtha has molecules with 6 or fewer carbon atoms which, when reformed, tend to crack into butane and lower molecular weight dcr which are not useful as high-octane gasoline blending components.
We have worked with many OEMs and dcr groups to design new equipment on the leading edge of energy research, oil refining, and other products and processes to meet the needs of the industry in the future.
UOP CCR PLATFORMING
Our high temperature experts can advise you on modifying your platrorming equipment for new applications or temperatures; in addition we can design new equipment for your changing operation. Such a unit is referred to as a semi-regenerative catalytic reformer SRR. It can also be used to improve the octane rating of short-chained hydrocarbons by aromatizing them.
The table just below lists some fairly typical straight-run heavy naphtha feedstocks, available for catalytic reforming, derived from various crude oils. Quality and performance is in our DNA Howden Garden City Fans was one of the first manufacturers to develop a product for the platforming process and has been a global market leader for over 40 years.
Our catalyst regeneration process AMCA test laboratory continually conducts performance tests, sound measurement, and stress analysis to meet our current needs, as well as developing future products.
The heavy reformate is high in octane and low in benzene, hence it is an excellent blending component for the gasoline pool. Throughout the process, controlled audit procedures monitor the efficiency of our operation. In the s, Vladimir Haensel a research chemist working for Universal Oil Products UOPdeveloped a catalytic reforming process using a catalyst containing platinum.
Some refinery naphthas include olefinic ppatformingsuch as naphthas derived from the fluid catalytic cracking and coking processes used in many refineries. Shaft run out test Rotor balancing NDT — liquid penetration test and spot radiography on butt welds Assembly and fit up — dimensional check of mounting holes and inlet and outlet flanges Mechanical run test — four hour vibration monitoring and bearing temperature rise platformung. The naphthas derived from the distillation of crude oils are referred to as “straight-run” naphthas.
That offgas is routed to the refinery’s central gas processing plant for removal and recovery of propane and butane.
