  performance products are excellent for:
   –   Load Out Rack
   –   Tank Farms

                  Performance Separations™
                     Sweetening
Sweeting is the removal of sufur acid compounds found in
  hydrocarbons often called:
• Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) or
• Mercaptans
The main types of process equipment in sweetening systems
  are called:
• Amine
• Hydrotreaters
• Caustic Treatment (Merox Process)
• Sulfur Recovery Units (Claus Unit)

               Performance Separations™
 Amine Sweetening




Performance Separations™
              Amine Sweetening
• Amine Systems
  – sweeten natural gas and remove CO2
• Amine Systems are a closed loop system so
  contaminants build up over time in the system
• Main contaminants over time are iron sulfides
• Improved filtration can cause fewer upsets, less
  amine losses and lower amine concentrations
• CHEMFLO recommends 100% Filtration at 10um
  absolute or tighter

             Performance Separations™
               Amine Sweetening
• “Rich Amine” – after the contactor –can have a
  hydrocarbon content to high for polypropylene
• “Lean Amine” – after the exchanger – can have
  temperatures too high for polypropylene
• Common Types of Ethanolamine's
  – Mono-ethanolamine (MEA), Di-ethanolamine (DEA),
    Mono-diethanolamine (MDEA)
• Other types of solvents (less common)
  – Selexol, Rectisol, Purisol

                                               REFORMING


        Naphthas have an aromatic content that
        dissolves many common filter and coalescer
        materials over time
                  Performance Separations™
       Caustic Treating - Merox Process
The Merox
Process is
a common
Caustic
sweetening
process
developed
by UOP




             Performance Separations™
                       Caustic Treating
• Sodium Hydroxide sweetens liquid hydrocarbons
• Caustic is most commonly used to sweeten:
   – Kerosene (jet fuel)
   – LPGs
   – Light Naphthas (commonly used in ethylene production)
• Caustic reacts with many common filter materials including
  polyester, phenolics, glass fiber, urethane adhesives,
  aluminum and carbon steel.
• Coalescers remove carried over caustic by removing water
  downstream of caustic washes
• Caustic lowers interfacial tensions substantially causing
  emulsions that are difficult to remove

                 Catalytic Reforming Unit




Conversion of Low Octane Petroleum Refinery naphtha Feedstock to High Octane Gasoline
(Petrol) Products. Other byproducts include methane, ethane, propane and butanes.

                     Performance Separations™
           Catalytic Reforming Unit
• Reformate is added to gasoline to boost octane and to
  get more of the crude distillate into gasoline
• The Catalytic Reformer converts naphtha, usually heavy
  naphtha, into reformate.
• The aromatic content in reformate attacks many common
  filter and coalescer materials including common
  adhesives, common glass fiber binders and
  cellulose/paper medias.




              Performance Separations™
                         Akylation
Process
whereby
isobutane
combine with
light olefins in
the presence
of a strong
acid catalyst
to produce a
high octane
alkylate
                             Hydrofluoric Alkylation Process
                   Performance Separations™
                           Akylation
• Commonly called the “alky unit”
• “Alkylate” is added to gasoline to boost octane and to get more
  crude distillate converted into gasoline (similar to reformate)
• The feed stock is isobutane and propylene/butylene but usually
  we are asked to filter or coalesce either “isobutane” or
  “isobutylene”
• The Alky unit uses either a “HF”(hydroflouric acid) or sulfuric acid
  catalyst
• The combination of acid carryover and isobutylene is a very
  aggressive solvent and dissolves many common filter materials



                 Performance Separations™
                   Low Sulfur Diesel
• Commonly called the “Green Diesel” or “ULSD” (Ultrao Low
  Sulfur Diesel)
• There have been huge investments by diesel refiners to add
  hydrotreaters to reduce sulfur content of diesel because of
  government regulations across the world
• Low Sulfur diesel can have low interfacial tensions causing
  coalescers not to work well unless designed for low IFTS
• Low Sulfur Diesel and especially ultra low sulfur diesel is a
  powerful solvent and attacks cellulose, binder in common
  glass fiber filters/coalescer and many adhesives
