  • Mohamed Awad Dear members of this group , i am facing an unusual problem of fouling in vacuum column top section and i am trying to develop a solution for the ongoing problem , i am looking for any advice or insights or even prior experience with similar problems , any contributions are highly welcomed . My problem is periodic formation of solid fouling in the top section of the tower despite of operating at relatively low temperatures (Tray temperature 185 C ) and low Pressures (-0.955 kgf/cm2) , i assumed that cracking or coking at this conditions is highly unlikely (correct me if i am wrong) and i assume that the problem might be caused by phase separation of asphaltenes entrapped in light hydrocarbons .... is there any way to exactly determine the problem , what kind of lab tests can be done ? any one faced similar problems in vacuum columns? Thanks for your time and consideration Best Regards

  • DarkLord What is gain/loss in pipeline operations/scheduling and why is it very important- is there any federal reporting to be done? what decisions would one take by looking at the gain loss metrics/trend over a period of time?

  • Anna Hi everyone! I'm new here, and would like to ask for your help naming one process unit or better process complex. It consists of 4 units: atmospheric distillation unit, naphtha catalytic reformer and hydrotreater, aviation kerosene and diesel hydrotreater, and LPG unit. In Russia they are called LK-6U. Is it correct naming it crude unit? Thanks in advance for any help! Anna
