Small Scale Naphtha Hydrotreating and Naphtha Reforming Units

Small Scale Naphtha Hydrotreating and Naphtha Reforming Units

Small Scale Naphtha Hydrotreating and Naphtha Reforming Units

Hi, everybody
I need some information about Naphtha Hydrotreating and Naphtha Reforming in a small scale for instance 300-700 ton/day. Any information such as costs, method of reforming (CCR or CRU), yield, units manufacturer, second hand units  for sale, operating conditions, feed and products specifications and so on will be appreciated.  

RE: Small Scale Naphtha Hydrotreating and Naphtha Reforming Units

Very generally; the hydrotreating removes S, because S will poison the reformer catalysts. Most serious oil companies have their own design/name (eg. Platforming, Ultraforming, etc). Google or Wikipedia is probably your next step. At the same time look up "high temperature hydrogen attack" /Nelson curves /API 941 (or 942) ; you are going to need to about it.

RE: Small Scale Naphtha Hydrotreating and Naphtha Reforming Units

The NHT and CRU will generally be purchased together because you will need a naphtha splitter.  In this flow range a semi regenerative scheme will be the most economic.
yield will be about 90%.  Pay attention to product spec.  Benzene and aromatics may be a problem.
There are modular fabricaton companies who specialize in these units who can help with cost info for new or used.  Platinum reforming catalyst is expensive but the metal can be recycled.
