Further to providing customers with grassroots PDPs, our engineering team has the capabilities of evaluating existing alkylation units.
In addition to providing the deliverables included in a PDP, we facilitate critical meetings throughout the project including, but not limited to kickoff meetings, PFD review meetings, and P&ID review meetings. In these meetings, STRATCO® experts ensure the proposed design adheres to the refinery requirements and adequately integrates with adjoining units. Additionally, we supports post PDP meetings involving process risk analysis (PHA, HAZOP, SIL, etc.) and other meetings like 3D model reviews.
There are a number of engineering studies we can complete to evaluate your existing alkylation unit:
A test run is accomplished by collecting actual data from an existing alkylation unit. A STRATCO® engineer will travel to the alkylation unit site and ensure all the necessary data is collected. Once the test run is complete, the engineering team will model the unit and quantify the performance of each unit operation.
STRATCO® engineers can use a test run study to inform recommendations for alkylation unit optimization. These studies can be custom tailored to investigate the entire alkylation unit or specific sections.
Once a test run study is complete, our experts can evaluate expansion opportunities within an existing alkylation unit. This expansion or revamp study provides process modifications required for a specified feed rate by identifying the unit bottlenecks and providing engineered solutions.
When evaluating alternative feedstocks, we can provide product quality expectations and recommend specific operating parameters needed to achieve these product properties.
If you’re looking for the best alkylation unit training in the world, look no further. We offer classroom training as well as an Operator Training Simulator (OTS) for refiners looking to better prepare their employees for real life operations situations. Our expert engineering team develops these customized models using the TMODS dynamic simulator. The resulting high-fidelity model is used as an engine behind the emulated OTS DCS board.
