Petrochemical Processing

  • Fives Cryogenics Application PetrochemicalProcessing-FIVES

Why develop petrochemical processing ?

Petrochemicals are extracted from petroleum or natural gas. Many current consumer products are manufactured from petrochemical components which are used in many different industries. Petrochemicals through various processes produce plastics, solvents, resins, synthetic fibers, etc. ...

The processing of petrochemicals often includes cracking of large molecules at high temperatures, followed by cryogenic distillation in order to separate products from each other. Equipment such as brazed aluminium heat exchangers (BAHX) are very useful in this industry, in particular in the cryogenic distillation process.

What are the equipments for this application ?

BAHX can handle many different fluids at very different pressures/temperatures in the same exchanger. The cryogenic distillation requires BAHX in order to cool down streams to very low temperatures. They are also used as condensers and reboilers on the distillation columns.
