IsoTherming ® Hydroprocessing Technology
Isotherming_HydroprocessingDuPont IsoTherming ® hydroprocessing technology is an alternative to traditional desulphurisation methods for ultra low sulphur diesel - a commercially proven breakthrough process that gives petroleum refiners a more economical and flexible means to produce today’s ultra low sulphur transportation fuels. IsoTherming ® technology streamlines the reaction process by providing hydrogen through a saturated liquid recycle stream that eliminates the need for a recycle gas compressor and associated equipment—making the flow through the reactor a single, liquid phase. The hydro-treated liquid recycle stream also acts as a heat sink, resulting in lower temperature rise and therefore less unwanted cracking, less coking, reduced light-ends make, reduced maintenance, and increased catalyst life. The IsoTherming ® approach has attractive benefits to a refiner, including lower total investment, reduced equipment delivery times, and configuration flexibility.
