Hydrotreating and Catalytic Reforming, Part 2

SKU: ROSRO00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Operators who work in hydrotreating and catalytic reforming units need to know more than just what the units do and how they do it. Operators should also be knowledgeable in areas such as safety, evacuation and purge procedures, and catalyst regeneration. In addition, operators should be able to recognize abnormal operating conditions when they occur and know how to react in order to correct them.

Learning Objectives

  • Topic I: Safety Considerations
  • • Describe some of the dangers of hydrogen.
  • • Identify safety hazards related to dangerous gases, hydrocarbons, and chlorides.
  • • Describe safety considerations associated with an automatic emergency shutdown of hydrotreating and catalytic reforming operations.
  • Topic II: Evacuation and Purge
  • • Describe the basic preparations that should be made before a catalytic reforming unit is evacuated and purged.
  • • Describe a procedure for evacuating and purging a catalytic reforming unit to prepare it for a maintenance shutdown.
  • • Describe a procedure for evacuating and purging a catalytic reforming unit to prepare it for startup.
  • Topic III: Catalyst Regeneration
  • • Describe the main steps and chemical reactions associated with catalyst regeneration.
  • • Describe the basic operating principles for the following types of catalytic reforming units: semiregenerative, cyclic, and continuous.
  • Topic IV: Abnormal Operating Conditions, Part 1: Hydrotreating
  • • Describe how to identify and respond to the following hydrotreating problems: high sulfur content, decline in catalyst activity, channeling, and improper stabilizer operation.
  • Topic V: Abnormal Operating Conditions, Part 2: Catalytic Reforming
  • • Describe how to identify and respond to the following catalytic reforming unit problems: reactor problems, excessive hydrocracking, cooling equipment problems, product separator problems, stabilizer problems, and reformate problems.
  • Topic VI: Abnormal Operating Conditions, Part 3: Troubleshooting Example
  • • Describe how to troubleshoot a problem in a catalytic reforming unit by systematically identifying the abnormal operating conditions and determining the cause of the problem.
