Analysis of a diesel fuel hydrotreatment unit on the example of Orenburg oil
1. Kazan Federal University, Department of high-viscosity oils and natural bitumen Analysis of a diesel fuel hydrotreater
The article considers hydrotreating as one of the most important processes of oil refineries in order to remove undesirable components such as sulfur, nitrogen and aromatic olefins from petroleum fractions by selective reaction of these components with hydrogen in a reactor at relatively high temperatures under moderate pressure. General information about the hydrotreating of diesel fuel will also be considered, an assessment of this process will be given and a calculation of the material balance will be provided.
Keywords: hydrotreating, diesel fuel, hydrotreating reactor, EURO-5, catalyst.
