Praxair industrial supply of Refinery Gases and Equipment
Combine 50 years of experience with over 1 billion standard cubic feet per day of hydrogen capacity, and you’ve got a supplier with both the experience and the scope to help your refinery succeed in today’s challenging environment. Hydrogen plays an essential role in producing cleaner burning transportation fuels, and we know how to supply this critical industrial gas to you safely and efficiently.
Our team offers decades of experience in engineering, executing, and operating highly efficient and reliable hydrogen production plants, recovery systems, and pipeline networks around the world. We also offer unique application technologies for the refining industry. These technologies require minimal capital, utilizes oxygen and other industrial gases for increasing process unit capacity while reducing emissions and improving reliability.
Praxair industrial Applications of Gases For Your Refinery
Reduce CO and NOx emissions up to 60% and increase the operational flexibility of your Fluid Catalytic Cracking unit with our proprietary CONOx application.
Improve the regenerator capacity of your Fluid Catalytic Cracker (FCC) Unit by up to 35% with our oxygen enrichment technology.
Applying our oxy-fuel combustion technology to your fired heater will decrease fuel consumption and increase capacity, ultimately improving heater efficiency and reducing NOx emissions. Oxy-fuel combustion is a great way of debottlenecking a heater with minimal capital outlay.
Achieve 10-15% incremental hydrogen production from your steam methane reformer (SMR) using oxygen injection in the combustion side of the reformer.
Turn almost any refinery fuel gas stream, including those with high levels of olefins and heavier hydrocarbons, into an acceptable steam methane reformer (SMR) or gas-turbine feed. This technology is also a great alternative to standard hydrotreating for reducing organic sulfur levels in fuel gas to meet increasingly stringent environmental goals. Hydrogen and LPG fractions can also be recovered from refinery fuel gas streams with our refinery gas processing technology.
Increase your Sulfur Recovery Unit (SRU) capacity with oxygen enrichment.
Praxair has industry experience working with terminal operators to keep facilities operating with a focus on safety and efficiency. This helps terminal operations take advantage of cost-effective improvements.
Using the same liquid nitrogen source that is already used in the refinery for blanketing and purging, this industrial application can condense VOCs in a process stream, returning valuable products back to your operation and preserving the nitrogen for purging and blanketing operations.
Steam Methane Reforming or Energy Optimization for Your Refinery
We’ve harnessed our decades of SMR experience to develop a unique productivity toolset to help you identify and respond to factors impacting your productivity and efficiency, so you can operate at your peak.
Our specialists will work directly with you to identify valuable optimization opportunities for your refinery hydrogen system and energy usage, and develop a strategy to improve your overall efficiency.
We do more than provide industrial gases, supply systems and applications to the refining industry. We work with you to optimize every step of your process. From consultation to implementation and use, we offer a range of industrial services that help you monitor and manage your industrial gas supplies, hydrogen and refinery fuel gas balances, and improve the overall operation of your refinery
