Alkylation Operations

4.0 2 Reviews SKU: ROHFA00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

High-octane gasoline is one of the most important and profitable refinery products, and the main function of many refinery units is to make products for gasoline blending. In the final blend, one of the cleanest burning components, and the component with the highest octane, is often alkylate; the end product of an alkylation unit.
