If you are experiencing refining challenges impacting the efficiency and capacity of your visbreaker unit, we can help.
Your facility’s visbreaker is a processing unit that converts heavy bottoms from crude oil distillation into lighter and more valuable middle distillates (heating oil and diesel). The distillation steps preceding the visbreaker concentrate foulants in the crude, depositing them into heat exchangers. Often, this can negatively impact the performance of the unit.
At Dorf Ketal, our solution for Visbreaker Fouling Control involves:
- Studying the feed and deposit characteristics to identify potential mechanisms for the fouling
- Using simulation tools to test the activity of our antifoulants on your feed
- Developing new formulations to combat refining challenges
