In the present study, a 3D model of the industrial thermal reactor furnace of sulfur recovery units (SRUs) was simulated using the commercial CFD code ANSYS-FLUENT. The RNG-k-ε turbulence model and the eddy-dissipation-concept for taking into account the interactions of chemical reactions and turbulent flow were used in the computational model. The radiative transport was analyzed using the discrete ordinates method. Detailed reaction mechanisms were introduced in the CFD model for providing accurate predictions of combustion and the resulting species concentrations. The furnace geometry that was identical to those used in the industry was simulated. The predicted species composition distribution, temperature distribution, and absolute pressure, were in close good agreement with the corresponding measured data. Relative errors between the CFD results and the industrial data in terms of H2S conversion and overall efficiency were, respectively, 0.081% and 0.56%. New aspects of influence of geometric parameters such as burner, choke ring, and checker wall on the hydrodynamics and thermal behavior of the reactor furnace were also discussed. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

C2+ recovery in a conventional turbo-expander process is considered a case study. Some practical problems occur in the multi-stream heat exchanger, which lead to the plant shut down. In order to solve the problem and avoid the expensive cost connected with the multi-line heat exchanger replacement, simulation is carried out using Aspen HYSYS aiming to investigate the effect of the design variables and the effective parameters on the plant performance. Some modifications are suggested and applied to the simulation procedure. The hydrocarbon recovery as well as the performance of the turbo-expander and the heat exchanger observed after the modification is compared to those provided by the original design. The simulation shows that the modification proposed is adequate to be applied to the actual plant process.

The purpose of the current study is to experimentally investigate the reduction of sodium adsorption ratio (SAR) from a concentrated stream of reversed osmosis (RO) using natural zeolites. In order to reduce the salinity of solution, experiments were carried out using zeolites of varying concentration, pretreatment of adsorbents, and the addition of Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). The results show that both zeolites can be used in an RO brine treatment; however, Rhyolitic tuff is more effective than clinoptilolite for the reduction of water salinity. The experiments show that Rhyolitic tuff decreases salinity of RO concentrate to nearly one - third of the initial value. Statistical analyses show that the effect of zeolite concentration is negligible. Furthermore, the addition of EDTA and pretreatment of zeolite increase the SAR values. © Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) in Warsaw, 2015; © Institute of Technology and Life Sciences (ITP) in Falenty, 2015.

Abstract In recent years, there has been an increase of interest in the flow of gases at relatively high pressures and high temperatures. Hydrodynamic calculation of the energy losses in the flow of gases in conduits, as well as through the porous media constituting natural petroleum reservoirs, requires knowledge of the viscosity of the fluid at the pressure and temperature involved. Although there are numerous publications concerning the viscosity of methane at atmospheric pressure, there appears to be little information available relating to the effect of pressure and temperature upon the viscosity. A survey of the literature reveals that the disagreements between published data on the viscosity of methane are common and that most investigations have been conducted over restricted temperature and pressure ranges. Experimental viscosity data for methane are presented for temperatures from 320 to 400 K and pressures from 3000 to 140000 kPa by using falling body viscometer. A summary is given to evaluate the available data for methane, and a comparison is presented for that data common to the experimental range reported in this paper. A new and reliable correlation for methane gas viscosity is presented. Predicted values are given for temperatures up to 400 K and pressures up to 140000 kPa with Average Absolute Percent Relative Error (E ABS) of 0.794. © 2010 CAS/DICP.

Gas compressibility factor (z-Factor) is one of the most important parameters in upstream and downstream calculations of petroleum industries. The importance of z-Factor cannot be overemphasized in oil and gas engineering calculations. The experimental measurements, Equations of State (EoS) and empirical correlations are the most common sources of z-Factor calculations. There are more than twenty correlations available with two variables for calculating the z-Factor from fitting in an EoS or just through fitting techniques. However, these correlations are too complex, which require initial value and more complicated and longer computations or have magnitude error. The purpose of this study is to develop a new accurate correlation to rapidly estimate z-Factor. Result of this correlation is compared with large scale of database and experimental data also. Proposed correlation has 1.660 of Absolute Percent Relative Error (E ABS) versus Standing and Katz chart and has also 3.221 of E ABS versus experimental data. The output of this correlation can be directly assumed or be used as an initial value of other implicit correlations. This correlation is valid for gas coefficient of isothermal compressibility (c g) calculations also. © 2010 CAS/DICP.

In petroleum exploration and production operations, gas hydrates pose serious flow assurance, economic and safety concerns. Thermodynamic inhibitors are widely used to reduce the risks associated with gas hydrate formation. In the present study, systematic laboratory work was undertaken to determine synergistic effects between methanol and a Poly Vinyl Methyl Ether as Low Dosage Hydrate Inhibitors (LDHIs). A valuable effect was discovered at a certain ratio of methanol to the low dosage hydrate inhibitor. Copyright © 2010, Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Nowadays, Supply Chain Management (SCM) is an interesting problem that has attracted the attention of many researchers. Transportation network design is one of the most important fields of SCM. In this paper, an integrated multi-stage and multiproduct logistic network design including forward and reverse logistic is considered. At first, a Mixed Integer Nonlinear Programming model (MINLP) is formulated in such a way as to minimize purchasing and transportation costs. Then, a hybrid priority-based Genetic Algorithm (pb-GA), and Simulated Annealing algorithm (SA) are developed in two phases to find the proper solutions. The solution is represented by a matrix and a vector. Response Surface Methodology (RSM) is used in order to tune the significant parameters of the algorithm. Several test problems are generated in order to examine the proposed meta-heuristic algorithm performance. © 2013 Sharif University of Technology. All rights reserved.

The industrial ethane recovery column is modified by change in its operating conditions. In this contribution for the modified process, the influences of the reboiler temperature, column operating pressure and feed-inlet location are evaluated on the simulation results. Optimization of the retrofitted plant parameters is performed by using the practical method of response surface methodology (RSM) and the relevant cost estimation procedure. The best design is obtained and it is found that the production capacity is increased up to 18%, in comparison to the base case. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

A new configuration of a RD (reactive distillation) process is investigated to break the THF (tetrahydrofuran)/water azeotrope using Hysys process software. The main module is a column system containing the reaction of EO (ethylene oxide) with water, in which top and bottom streams are the desired products, THF and EG (ethylene glycol), respectively. This contribution explores feasibility of using the reaction in the RD column and also describes the influence of reflux ratio, reaction trays, operating pressure and feed-inlet locations of the RD column in simulation environment. The results show that high purities of EG and THF are simultaneously obtained by this novel technique leading to more profits of the RD process. The optimal design of the RD process is obtained by minimizing the energy demand and the optimum number of reactive trays is found to be 10. Furthermore, minimum energy demand is observed when the column operates at atmospheric pressure with reflux ratio of 1.25. Particularly, it is found that the optimal reboiler duty per unit THF produced is reduced from 32 to 3.7% for the new process as compared to the conventional one, while both schemes predict similar outputs. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
