Grasys plants for hydrogen recovery from technological flows utilize the latest developments of membrane and adsorption technologies and open new opportunities for enhancing efficiency of chemical and petrochemical facilities and refineries. The adoption of the new technical regulation and the forthcoming transition to new fuel classes with reduced content of sulfur and aromatic hydrocarbons poses increasingly higher requirements for quality of hydrocracking and isomerization related hydrogen which is becoming increasingly important. Continuous toughening of requirements for hydrogen purity and complete recovery is being observed in both chemical and petrochemical industries.
In view of this, the Company is continuously improving the technology of hydrogen recovery in order to offer each customer a solution fully satisfying its needs and enhancing operating efficiency of its hydrogen loop.
Grasys membrane plants for hydrogen recovery allow considerably reducing the volume of recirculating HBG by increasing hydrogen concentration to ensure significant saving of process compressors life cycle. For a number of processors hydrogen concentration and reduced content of impurities is a condition precedent to the process improper performance. Adsorption plants supplied by Grasys enable both HBG concentration and removal of target impurities, such as catalytic poisons.
Economic efficiency of various hydrogen concentration methods
Oil and gas processing
The tasks of hydrogen concentration in oil and gas processing technologies are successfully resolved with the use membrane and adsorption hydrogen plants. The primary source of hydrogen recovery is fuel gases, exhaust gases of PSA plants, purge gases of catalytic cracking plants etc.
Chemical and petrochemical processes
In technological processes of chemical and petrochemical industries, the tasks of hydrogen recovery from waste, purge and fuel gases are becoming ever more important. With the use of hydrogen plants, it becomes possible to concentrate such a valuable gas as hydrogen with return to the technological process.
Hydrocracking and hydraulic treatment
Hydrogen plants are highly efficient in hydrogen production from purge gases of hydraulic treatment and hydrocracking processes with its recycling in technological process.
Hydrogen separation from nitrogen, methane and argon in ammonia purge gas flows is one of the most wide spread applications of hydrogen plants. Hydrogen-saturated gas obtained at the hydrogen plant output is supplied back to synthetic gas compressor and returned to reactor.
Synthetic gas production
Hydrogen plants find broad application in regulation of the hydrogen and carbon oxide mix in oxosynthesis process flows.
