SRE’s Inshan Mohammed presented a paper at SOGAT 2017 that focused on three SRUs failing to meet expected overall recovery efficiencies due to:
Apparent first converter catalyst deactivation;
Reduced recovery efficiency due to poor Amine Unit operation; and
Lower than expected Carbonyl sulfide and Carbon disulfide hydrolysis rates for full Titania catalyst.
This paper summarizes each of these case studies by providing a description of the problem, a review of the possible causes, and recommendations for improvement. If you were unable to attend Inshan’s presentation, and want to receive a copy of the paper, please contact us.
