Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using one of our stateof-the-art simulators. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview on catalyst material handling, loading, unloading, oxidation, reduction and technique. It covers the preparation of catalyst change plan; executing the catalyst project efficiently and safely; the catalyst change operation main requirement; the work in inert and toxic atmospheres plus hot and hostile environments; the reactor cooling utilizing a proprietary liquid nitrogen system; the unloading and loading of catalyst under inert or normal atmospheres; the dense phase loading systems; and the innovative, purpose built-equipment ensuring low catalyst attrition rate. Further, the course also covers the catalyst sampling and particle measurement; the vacuum unloading with closed loop nitrogen re-circulation; the catalyst transportation, storage & containment (un approved); the tubular reformer loadings using unidense? loading and conventional techniques; the pre-sulphiding (DMDS injection); the metals reclamation and disposal of materials; the shutdown planning, coordination and execution; the edge equipment; the modifications for catalytic reactors, vessels on a blinds to blinds? basis; and the confined space and inert/toxic entry operations link to course overview PDF
