Course Description

Unionfining Process**

Course Overview

This course provides an introduction to various aspects of Unionfining technology and key information on unit design, catalysts, and procedures. Through lecture and exercises participants will gain an understanding of the theoretical principles of hydrotreating, as well as the practical knowledge required for safe and efficient unit operation.

Participants will discuss best practices, determine better ways to evaluate operating data, and work with unit flow schemes and equipment. Participants will also discuss the impact of catalyst selection and process variables on unit performance, operating procedures and the philosophies behind them, and the metallurgy and corrosion issues specific to hydrotreating units. Case studies will allow participants to learn from actual Unionfining operating situations.
