For a vacuum tower to operate effectively, the flash zone and the wash section must work together to provide the best possible feed quality. To properly design a vacuum column, engineers need to predict how much entrainment and associated contaminants will travel from the flash zone to the slop wax and HVGO draws. The flash zone serves to transition the high-velocity, two-phase feed from the transfer line into the vacuum column in a manner that separates the liquid and routes it to the bottom of the column, while delivering the vapor uniformly to the upper sections of the column. A discussion covers the optimization of flash zone and wash section design; de-entrainment vs. vapour distribution; an example, showing the performance of an industrial column with a less-than-optimum wash section design; entrainment from the flash zone; and number of stripping stages in the bottom of the column.

Though they look very different, UOP SimulFlow™, Koch-Glitsch Ultra-Frac™, Jaeger CoFlo™ and Shell ConSep™ trays fall into the same category of trays using inertial separation technology. However, flooding mechanisms and the trends of entrainment and efficiency are different due to their different working principles. This paper provides a detailed analysis of these trays using available information from literature and U.S. Patents. Efforts are also made to interpret the observations reported. In terms of tray efficiency, it is found that SimulFlow, UltraFrac and CoFlo trays are typical point efficiency devices due to a completely mixed liquid pool on the tray deck, while ConSep trays can take advantage of liquid concentration gradient on the tray deck, which makes this tray attractive among all ultra high capacity trays. © 2010 Chemical Industry and Engineering Society of China (CIESC) and Chemical Industry Press (CIP).

The main fractionator of the crude distillation unit (CDU-1) in the Whangarei refinery of The New Zealand Refining Co (NZRC) was retrofitted with high-capacity internals to increase the unit throughput. Shell Global Solutions International carried out the feasibility study for the expansion of CDU-1. Several options were studied to debottleneck the main fractionators. On the basis of a comparison of the revamp options, NZRC decided to proceed with the ConSep tray alternative due to this option?s lowest capex and most favorable economics. The performance of Shell ConSep trays in the HGO pumparound section of the CDU-1 main fractionators is discussed.

The optimization of distillation equipment and processes using smart design to improve both the profitability and the greenness of an operation is presented. Smart column design is a function of understanding the process requirements and then using good process design. Green designs are smart, cost-effective solutions. The three stages of the distillation column design are described, i.e., construction materials, and resources; process design and configuration, and internal design optimization.

The Propylene-Propane (PP) Splitter is the most critical tower among the distillation columns of an ethylene plant. This is even more true in many Russian steam crackers where the PP-Splitters were equipped with "non conventional fractionation trays", providing with poor performances. Thus, the recovery of Propylene was much lower than commonly achieved in modern Plants. A discussion covers a case study illustrating the revamp of the PP-Splitter with the most updated mass transfer technology allowed for a significant boosting of the Propylene recovery; and the revamp approach, including process simulation, selection of the most appropriate fractionation trays, job implementation at site, and the achieved results. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2010 Spring National Meeting (San Antonio, TX, 3/21-25/2010).

In the hydrocarbon industry, i.e., oil refineries, petrochemical plants, gas plants, and exploration and production facilities, it is often necessary to separate gas from liquid at a certain stage of an operation or process. The Schoepentoeter is a Shell proprietary feed inlet vane device commonly used for introducing gas-liquid mixtures into distillation columns or gas-liquid separators. For a bulk gas-liquid separation, where generally not > 95% of the liquid must be removed from the gas stream, the Schoepentoeter is one of the most effective devices available on the market. In most of cases, the conventional Schoepentoeter has provided very good performance. To comply with the most severe services, Sulzer Chemtech and Shell Global Solutions have jointly developed the new Schoepentoeter Plus which substantially improves the performances of the conventional one. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2011 AIChE Spring Meeting & 7th Global Congress on Process Safety (Chicago, IL 3/13-17/2011).

The Gas-FACTS programme will provide important underpinning research for UK CCS development and deployment on natural gas power plants, particularly for gas turbine modifications and advanced post combustion capture technologies that are the principal candidates for deployment in a possible tens-of-£billions expansion of the CCS sector between 2020 and 2030, and then operation until 2050 or beyond, in order to meet UK CO2 (carbon dioxide) emission targets. Gas CCS R&D is an emerging field and many of the concepts and underlying scientific principles are still being invented. But on-going UK infrastructure investments and energy policy decisions are being made which would benefit from better information on relevant gas CCS technologies, making independent, fundamental studies by academic researchers a high priority. In addition, the results of this project will provide an essential basis for further work to extract the maximum research benefits from the UK CCS demonstration programme and help to develop more advanced gas CCS technologies for a second tranche of CCS deployment. The programme will also develop rigorous assessment methods and a framework to maximise pathways to impact that could support other RCUK research activities on gas CCS. Globally, there is already interest in gas CCS in Norway, California and the Middle East, and this is likely to become more widespread if cheaper gas leads to more widespread use. This work will be undertaken through work packages with the following aims: WP1: To quantify the scope of gas turbine modifications to improve the technical, environmental and economic performance of integrated CO2 capture on CCGT plants. Small gas turbines will be modified to run with steam or recycled flue gas replacing some of the normal air feed to increase back-end CO2 concentrations (which will help make the CO2 easier to capture). WP2: To quantify through modelling and experimental testing the scope for improving post-combustion capure system performance on CCGT plants through a combination of advanced liquid solvents, including novel amine mixtures, and improved transient performance. Solvents that are used to take up CO2 and then release it in a pure form that can be stored underground will be modified so that the amount of energy required to do this is reduced. The equipment the solvents are used in will also be designed to turn on and off quickly to allow CCS power plants to compensate for fluctuations in output from wind turbines. WP3: In close collaboration with an external Experts Group to undertake integration and whole systems performance assessments. This will include a Gas-FACTS Impact Handbook combining impact tables with state-of-the-art surveys to ensure that pathways to impact pursued by Gas-FACTS researchers are co-ordinated with other significant activities, including excellent science and stakeholder plans, to maximise their effectiveness. Gas-FACTS results will be implemented in the freely-available IECM package for access by any potential users. WP4: Impact delivery and expert interaction activities will be based on establishing an Experts Group including representatives of the UK CCS academic community, global academic community, UK policymakers, UK Regulators, NGOs, power utilities, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises). WP4 will also run a programme of engagement activities to impact, including project meetings, specialist meetings on topical issues and results, web-based dissemination and document publication (reports, responses to Parliamentary inquiries, journal papers, articles etc.)
