Cooling down a reactor is a time consuming process, often requiring up to four days when the conventional method is used. However, this cool down time can be shortened by several days at a fraction of the cost using the accelerated cool-down technique.
The hydrocarbon processing industry adheres to a complex sequence of processes in order to reduce crude to useable end products. In the past, many of these processes used catalysts to improve effectiveness and efficiency. The increasing use of catalysts reduces the quality of crude and focuses on catalyst turnaround and handling times.
Enhanced nitrogen reactor cool-downs are performed to speed up the reactor cool-down process.
