Improving refinery asset utilization
with low cost tower internal modifications
Koch-Glitsch, LP
During tough economic times, operators are challenged with increasing margins and decreasing capital expenditures. However, operators can pursue low-cost/high return opportunities that are within their existing plant capital budgets that will improve product recovery, increase capacity and/or improve reliability (e.g. increase run length). These projects do not require large engineering support, but can be accomplished with the assistance of knowledgeable mass transfer professionals who have the skills and experience appropriate to the specific project. 


Can you have a subcooled flashing feed?
Koch-Glitsch, LP
Feed streams entering a column above their boiling point at column conditions will flash.  The amount of flash and the location where the pressure is let down in the piping will determine the type flash feed device required to ensure proper column operation.
