Compass Model No.: Process Equipment – Refluxed Stabilizer
Application: Liquid product vapour pressure and composition control
- Control top and bottom product vapour pressure and key component content to allow tank and bullet storage.
- Offload existing de-ethanizer to allow more plant throughput.
- Sweeten inlet liquid.
Design Challenges: Generate discrete product specifications at both tower top and bottom while condensing using air cooler. Eliminate hydrate formation on inlet level control.
Compass Solution: Reboiler and reflux system, cooling air temperature controlled condenser, inlet heater and feed/bottoms exchanger.
