We have developed a number of innovative process technologies to help refiners unlock the full productivity and profitability potential of their operations through smart, selective and safe investments in gases.
Our application technologies, for example, include our SURE® oxygen enrichment portfolio for Claus plants. Covering the full spectrum from low- to high-level oxygen enrichment, SURE uses single and double combustion technologies to increase the efficiency and flexibility of Claus furnaces by as much as 170% in some cases. Our oxygen enrichment technologies have also been shown to increase regenerator capacity in fluid catalytic crackers (FCC) by as much as 35% and to intensify combustion in various process furnaces – also by up to 35%.
In addition, we offer wastewater solutions including our SOLVOCARB® water treatment system for neutralisation and pH control and our SOLVOX® oxygen dissolution units for aerobic biological treatment and oxygen upgrades. To break down non-biodegradable organics, customers can rely on us for customised ozone supply schemes to meet individual volume, purity and budgetary needs.
At the same time, we help refiners meet tighter air pollution controls and/or increase capacity without upping emissions of nitrogen oxides (mainly NO and NO2). Our LoTOx™ NOx removal unit is an effective way to control particulates, sulfur dioxide and NOx emissions from FCCs, for example. And our CIRRUS® cryocondensation technology recovers volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for recycling or controlled disposal.
Additionally, we support operators in the increasingly rigorous task of proving compliance with stricter legislation. Our full-line HiQ® portfolio of specialty gases, equipment and services has everything refiners need for process measurement, emissions control, instrument calibration, leak detection and combustion control.
Last but not least, we enable general applications such as blanketing, purging, pressure control and pipe pigging with secure, reliable on-site or bulk supply schemes for gases such as nitrogen.
Regardless of your gas-related needs in refining, you can look forward to smarter, cleaner and more economical operations with Linde. Our aim is to help you fine-tune key links in your process flow so you can optimise capacity, reliability and flexibility for a healthier bottom line.
