SUPERHIDIC® technology

SUPERHIDIC® is a technology that reduces the amount of energy used in distillation, a unit operation widely applied in oil refineries and petrochemical plants. HIDIC technology has been researched for many years by companies, universities and research institutions around the world. TOYO is the first to commercialize this technology in the innovative system, SUPERHIDIC.

SUPERHIDIC applies well-proven technology related to distillation and heat transfer. The system reduces thermal energy consumption in heating the reboiler at the bottom of the distillation tower and cooling the condenser at the top of the tower. CO2 emissions are also reduced, and it enables oil refineries and petrochemical plants not only to save energy but also to contribute directly to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.

SUPERHIDIC® features

Feature 1. Operating pressure in rectifying section is higher than that in the stripping section. This makes a transfer of the excess heat duty in the rectifying section to stripping section possible.

Feature  2. Stripping section (low pressure column) elevated above rectifying section (high pressure column). Side heat exchange is accomplished by thermo-siphon and/or gravity without pumping.

Feature 3. Existing component technology applied. All equipment is designed with proven technology and maintenance can be performed by conventional means.
