Solvent regeneration to recover a polar hydrocarbon (HC) selective solvent substantially free of hydrocarbons (HCs) and other impurities from a solvent-rich stream containing selective solvent, heavy HCs, and polymeric materials (PMs) generated from reactions among thermally decomposed or oxidized solvent, heavy HCs, and additives is provided. A combination of displacement agent and associated co-displacement agent squeezes out the heavy HCs and PMs from the extractive solvent within a solvent clean-up zone. Simultaneously, a filter equipped with a magnetic field is positioned in a lean solvent circulation line to remove paramagnetic contaminants. The presence of the co-displacement agent significantly enhances the capability of the displacement agent in removing the heavy HCs and PMs from the extractive solvent. As a result, the solvent regeneration system operates under milder conditions and minimizes or eliminates the need for including a high temperature, energy intensive and difficult-to-operate thermal solvent regenerator.

A magnetic filter employs a magnetic core assembly that incorporates a plurality of exchangeable holder sleeves, each enclosing permanent magnets. Neither the sleeves nor magnetic bars are mechanically fixed to the filter housing. The magnet bars and holder sleeves are individually accessible. The number of holder sleeves in the magnetic core assembly is flexible. The magnetic filter in equipped with a screen that partially encloses the elongated holder sleeves to treat streams that contain degradation sludge, iron containing particles or flakes, and non-magnetic polymeric materials. In operation, a feed stream initially contacts the magnetic core assembly where paramagnetic contaminants become deposited onto the exterior surface of the holder sleeves under direct influence of strong magnetic field generated by the magnet bars. The mesh screen cylinder subsequently captures non-magnetic and weakly magnetic contaminants of a certain size before the cleaned stream exits the magnetic filter.

Extractive distillation processes whereby water-soluble extractive distillation (ED) solvents are regenerated and recovered employ improved operations of the extractive distillation column (EDC) so that polar hydrocarbons are recovered and purified from mixtures containing polar and less polar hydrocarbons and measurable amounts of hydrocarbons that are heavier than intended feedstock and/or polymers that are generated in the ED process. The improved process can effectively remove and recover the heavy hydrocarbons and/or remove polymer contaminants from the solvent in a closed solvent circulating loop through mild operating conditions with no additional process energy being expended. With the improved process, the overhead reflux of the EDC may be eliminated to further reduce energy consumption and to enhance the loading and performance within the upper portion of the EDC, especially when two liquid phases exists therein.

Disclosed is a suction plate, and more particularly to a suction plate, in which a pad (10) to which a suction band (30) is attached along an outer bottom surface is pressed down by external force while contacting a target surface (s) and then restored upward when released from the external force, so that a vacuum can be created between a center portion (11) of the pad and the target surface since the outer portion of the pad is firmly attached to the target surface by the suction band and the center portion having no suction band tends to move upward by the restoring force when a user presses the pad against the target surface and releases the pad, thereby strongly attaching the pad to the target surface.

A silicon resin composition, transparent optical film, and packaging materials manufactured thereby are provided. The silicon resin composition has (A) silicone and (B) metal oxide-polymer oligomer particles. The (B) metal oxide-polymer oligomer particles are in the amount of 0.5 to 5 wt % of the total weight of the silicon resin composition. The silicon resin composition has the property of low thermal stress, high refractive index, transparency, heat resistance and good adhesion, and can be widely used in different applications.

A process for converting paraffin by using a modified zirconia catalyst is provided. The process has steps of: (i) providing feed containing n-pentane, n-hexane and more than 2 vol % n-heptane based on the volume of the feed; and (ii) subjecting the feed to isomerization of n-heptane with a modified zirconia catalyst comprising zirconium oxide, sulfate ions, a first metal component and a second metal component. Based on the weight of the catalyst, an amount of the first metal component ranges between 0.1 wt % and 15 wt %, an amount of the second metal component ranges between 0.2 wt % and 3.0 wt %, and an amount of the sulfate ions contain sulfur is less than 1.0 wt %. By using the modified zirconia catalyst with low sulfate content, the process is beneficial to improve iso-C_(7 )selectivity and conversion rate in heptane isomerization.

A method for making high purity dicyclopentadiene comprises the following steps: providing a dimer feedstock comprising dicyclopentadiene and methyl dicyclopentadiene; blending the dimer feedstock and a diluent to obtain a first blend; cracking the first blend in a vapor phase at 300 C. to 400 C. to obtain a cracked feedstock; separating the cracked feedstock into a second blend and a third blend; dimerizing the second blend at 50 C. to 120 C. to obtain a fourth blend; and separating the fourth blend to obtain a recycled diluent and high purity dicyclopentadiene. By using saturated C5 hydrocarbon, saturated C6 hydrocarbon, benzene and the mixture thereof as the diluent and the steps mentioned above, the clogging problem of cracker tubes is solved and the cost of makeup diluent usage is lowered.

This invention describes a method for co-producing isobutene and methyl tert-butyl ether in a catalytic distillation column, wherein contacting with solid acid catalysts the charged tert-butanol mixture undergoes dehydration and etherification. The mixture of isobutene and methyl tert-butyl ether withdrawn from the column top can be further separated, thus high purity isobutene and fuel-additive methyl tert-butyl ether are obtained.

A dual-bed catalytic distillation tower has a catalytic column having an upper catalytic bed filled with low temperature dehydration catalysts and a lower catalytic bed filled with high temperature dehydration catalysts. When using the dual-bed catalytic distillation tower, the feeding may be fed to the tower at the top of the upper catalytic bed, between the upper and lower catalytic beds, or at the bottom of the lower catalytic bed for dehydration to obtain DME. The dual-bed catalytic distillation tower has the advantage of flexible set-up depending on various feedings such as anhydrous or crude methanol and on different grades of DME to be obtained.
