In many reﬁneries most of the C4 ’s and lighter are removed from the atmospheric column overhead distillate in the ﬁrst column of the light end unit. This is the unit’s debutanizer column. Some reﬁneries however chose to separate the light naphtha and lighter from the heavy naphtha ﬁrst. There is no speciﬁc reason one can assume its really a question of the speciﬁc reﬁnery’s economic criteria. Having separated the C4 ’s and lighter as a distillate from the naphtha the distillate enters a depropanizer where C3 and lighter are separated as a distillate from the C4 ’s.
7 relating t50 (DRL–FRL) to DRL slope is used for this. 7 relating the ratio of temperature differences between the FRL and ﬂash curve (EFV) from that for the TBP to DRL is applied to each percent volume. From this the atmospheric EFV curve is drawn. A sample calculation for the compilation of the EFV curve follows. Note the TBP curve is used to deﬁne product yields while the EFV curve is used to deﬁne temperature/pressure conditions in distillation. 3). 8. 3. 1 Flash, ◦ F 453 469 482 491 498 507 511 514 523 531 547 Predicting product qualities The following paragraphs describe the prediction of product properties using pseudo components (mid boiling point) and assay data.
A small hydrogen stream is added to the hydrocarbon from the guard reactor prior to entering the ether reactor. This reactor contains special resin catalyst and the reactor feed ﬂows upward through this catalyst bed at moderate temperature and pressure and in the liquid phase. The reaction is exothermic and temperature control is maintained by externally cooling a recycle stream from the ﬁrst of two reactor vessels. 40 CHAPTER 1 The catalyst in this case performs three reactions simultaneously: Etheriﬁcation of branched oleﬁns, selective hydrogenation of the unwanted di-oleﬁns, and hydro isomerization of oleﬁn by a double bond switch.
