Hydrotreating and Catalytic Reforming, Part 1

5.0 1 Review SKU: ROCRO00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Refineries develop and improve products such as high-octane, low-knock gasoline; aviation fuel; and petrochemical feedstocks. The major role of hydrotreating and catalytic reforming units is to work together to produce these fuels and petrochemical feedstocks. This course examines the reactions and equipment that are involved in hydrotreating and catalytic reforming and identifies the process variables that have to be monitored and controlled.
