This free datasheet highlights optimum aromatic fractionation (BTX extraction) filtration.
The process occurs when a refinery utilizes reformate from its catalytic reformer and extracts the aromatics rather than blend them into gasoline. Aromatics are then separated into pure benzene, toluene, and mixed xylenes products at the BTX Unit. The BTX is either processed by a chemical unit within the refinery, or sold to a chemical facility for production into a wide range of chemicals.
This manufacturer's designs are cited to help avoid such common aromatic fractionation filtration problems as foaming and fouling. They meet sales product specs, reduce use of costly anti-foaming inhibitors, reduce equipment fouling, lower operating and maintenance costs, plus increase BTX extraction efficiency.
