The need to push conversion/severity of the visbreaker unit, problematic feedstock quality and operational constraints relative to residence times and heat inputs can all contribute to fouling in the unit. Visbreaker fouling impacts unit selectivity, increases energy costs, constrains conversion and minimizes throughput and on-stream time. Let us apply our many years’ experience, our newest technologies and our application strategies to minimizing fouling and optimizing your operations.
Conversion Plus II™ to Minimize Visbreaker Fouling
We have developed process simulation testing equipment to evaluate visbreaker process conditions relative to the feedstock quality available for a specific site. Our research has resulted in a variety of products used to minimize fouling based on the individual areas of the unit and related mechanisms.
Our Conversion Plus II™ program incorporates the evaluation of feedstock quality relative to coke formation, operational parameters relative to foulant formation, recommendations relative to the results, and proprietary fouling control chemistries. The Conversion Plus II program has successfully minimized fouling impacts to visbreaker operations, maximizing profitability by conversion optimization.
