Temporary heat exchangers keep plants running profitably
9 Jan 2019 at 12:00am

Plants are always striving to optimize operations. Given that they are usually operating far beyond their design limits, heat exchangers are often a bottleneck to increasing capacity or maintaining product split.

During the summertime, many process units often experience cooling limitations. Usually, these are due to warmer cooling tower water or because fin fans have become less effective.

During a turnaround, vessels need to be ‘steamed out’ to remove containments, which requires additional heat exchangers. In addition, chillers and additional exchangers are often used as part of novel approaches to quickly cool hydrotreater, hydrocracker, and reforming catalyst before opening a vessel.

This paper demonstrates how temporary heat exchangers can be installed to solve these problems and streamline catalyst cool downs.

A case study shows how a temporary heat exchanger solution helped an ethylene oxide producer avert leaking product to the atmosphere. This solution not only helped the producer avoid steep fines, but it also yielded tens of millions of dollars of profit that would otherwise have been lost.

How do I speed up my turnaround timeline?
9 Jan 2019 at 12:00am

As with most major process plants, refineries and petrochemical plants periodically need to shut down the entire plant or major portions of it for major maintenance activities.

These time periods are referred to as ‘turnarounds’ and are time periods of intense activity. Once the plant shuts down, a considerable amount of money is being spent without any revenue being generated. So, there is immense pressure to work as efficiently as possible to get the plant back on stream as soon as possible.

However, there are always events that are on the ‘critical path’. If those events can be shortened, it’s possible to be able to decrease the turnaround duration and get the plant back on-stream faster enabling it to generate revenue quicker.

Increasing Amine System H2S and CO2 Recovery Efficiency
9 Jan 2019 at 12:00am

Rapid fouling of heat transfer equipment in amine scrubbing systems reduces performance, especially during the hot summer season. Engineered temporary cooling delivers ideal process conditions in critical periods of the year with no production interruption. Furthermore, the immediate added marginal value will mitigate having to acquire nonproductive capital assets to minimize the risk of
interrupting production.

Consider the options when connecting renewable power to the grid
9 Jan 2019 at 12:00am

A crucial factor in generating power from renewable resources depends on the effectiveness of the services required during each phase of the project’s lifecycle. Technical advances, market drivers, regulations and government incentives are why more baseload power comes from renewables, such as offshore wind power capacity that in 13 years has increased from 160 MW to over 12 GW. But before renewables can approach grid parity with conventional power generation, advanced planning is necessary for dealing with challenges at every phase of the project’s lifecycle, such as during startup and commissioning challenges. Without expert support, unplanned events could affect warranties, financing, safety and project completion.

Continuous Power during Infrastructure Changes (T&D)
9 Jan 2019 at 12:00am

The level of dedication to customer service varies among utilities. Adherence to meeting customer expectations compels the utility to focus on quality-determining metrics, such as the customer average interruption duration index (CAIDI). Against this backdrop of customer expectations, PG&E, one of the nation’s largest utilities, operates in a region where outages are not tolerated. To minimize customer outages, particularly during periods of transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure changes, PG&E is relying upon mobile power generation resources to inject power into those constrained sections of grid undergoing upgrades.

How can fossil fuel power plants cost-effectively protect their turbines duri...
9 Jan 2019 at 12:00am

Market changes to the electric utility grid affecting fossil fuel-based power generation have resulted in the need to find cost effective preservation programs to protect turbine-generators during maintenance and prolonged shutdowns. 
Thermal power plant protocols for upgrading turbine-generator units specify guidelines for controlling humidity when the unit’s internal components are exposed during maintenance. For this requirement, desiccant dehumidifiers and supporting equipment deliver the optimal ROI over other options.

Why reliable temporary power generation systems are essential for wind farms
9 Jan 2019 at 12:00am

The wind industry has grown to the point where it is now the fourth largest source of electrical power in North America after natural gas, coal and nuclear. Industry reports indicate that global electricity generation from wind energy reached 60 GW in 2016. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Vision report says the United States may be able to meet 10% of its electricity needs through wind power by 2020, 20% by 2030, and 35% by 2050.
