Distillation & Hydrocarbon Processing Practices

$167.00

A useful reference guide to the design and operations of hydrocarbon processing facilities, including refineries, petrochemical plants, and gas processing plants. Ashis Nag draws on his 35 years of experience to illustrate advanced practices in distillation with examples of process simulation and basic principles. The book’s many case studies will assist engineering students as well as practicing engineers in understanding the inner workings of these complex facilities.

Topics

  • Crude distillation
  • Vacuum distillation
  • Condensate distillation
  • Crude oil upgraders and heavy crude processing
  • Hydrotreating/hydrocracking
  • Gas amine absorbers
  • Amine regeneration
  • Gas concentration
  • Sour water strippers
  • Natural gas processing
  • Catalytic reforming units (CRU/CCRU)
  • Important process calculations
  • Isomerization
  • Troubleshooting

Audience

  • Process engineers
  • Chemical engineering students

It is one of the very few books which covers the theory, simulation and real field aspects and fundamentals in a very organized way. Though the book length is minimal compared to other available well known books on the same, Mr. Nag has tried the best fit. Distillation- Fractionation is also very thoroughly covered.
