Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes real-life case studies and exercises where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. Petroleum refineries are among the largest users of hydrogen in the chemical industry. Hydrogen is used in hydrogenation, desulfurization and denitrogenation processes and a large source of hydrogen in refining operations is the production of aromatic compounds which are used as octane enhancers in gasoline. The role of the steam reformer for the production of both synthesis gas and steam will be discussed. The basic steam reformer design will be reviewed together with the water and steam systems. Feedstocks and feedstock purification topics will be followed by the steam reforming chemistry and steam reforming catalyst. All aspects of reformer metallurgy will be reviewed including monitoring and dealing with tube failures. This course will cover all of the many catalysts, absorbents and adsorbents used for hydrogen production. In general, these units have long periods of operation between shutdowns and correct catalyst loading and activation procedures must be followed to avoid unintended outages. link to course overview PDF
