Maintenance And Capacity Improvements In Vis-Breaking (Thermal Cracking)

Cracked residue contains considerable heat energy that can be recovered for preheating by

Tranter Spiral Heat Exchangers

These easily cleanable units can ease maintenance and downtime burdens.

Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchangers

can undertake preheating duties using the gas oil fraction, and are also effective as coolers of the light distillate vapor, particularly where column capacity increases have resulted in incomplete condensation.

Better Response And Efficiency For Fluid Catalytic Cracking

Tranter Spiral Heat Exchangers improve response, efficiency and service life as:

  • Fraction coolers for several products, with long, controlled thermal length for good gas separation performance
  • Regenerator overhead condenser of foul condensate/makeup water heaters
  • Bottom fraction and clarified slurry oil coolers, with easy cleanability.

Efficient Control Of Waste Liquids Heating And Separation

Liquid waste treatment requires heated tanks. Tranter Prime Surface Heat Exchangers are versatile products for heating mixed waste, reducing viscosity to facilitate the settling out of solids. Large surface areas, as required, can be provided by a combination of internal banks and external prime surface panels. This also permits easy zoning of the heating surface.

Reducing Maintenance And Durability Burdens In Sour Water Stripping

Spiral units function well as:

  • Stripped water cooler/feed emulsion heater interchangers and stripper reboilers that accommodate corrosive, foul-prone feeds with easy cleanability and durability
  • Overhead stripper column condensers that separate water vapor completely while withstanding acid gas

Efficient Storage Tank Heating Saves Energy And Speeds Unloading

Tranter Prime Surface panels configured as suction heaters warm viscous products prior to pumping to speed unloading and save energy. Prime surface panels can also be clamped on externally, allowing total accessibility. When heating sensitive lube oil, an air gap is provided to prevent overheating.

Improved Condensibles Oxidation In Sulfur Emissions Control

Hot condensibles from the absorber column are steam-heated in a Tranter Spiral Heat Exchanger for oxidation and stripping. A Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchanger cools the sulfur dioxide/vapor, removing heat that can be used to preheat other streams in the plant.

Tranter Spiral Heat Exchangers in liquid phase processing
Tranter Spiral Heat Exchangers can be used in liquid phase processing as bottom fraction or cracked residue coolers/preheaters, condensibles oxidizer-strippers, fraction coolers, stripper reboilers, stripped water/feed emulsion interchangers or clarified oil slurry coolers.

Tranter Spiral Heat Exchangers in gas/vapor phase processing
Tranter Spiral Heat Exchangers can be used in gas/vapor phase processing as overhead condenser/makeup water heaters or overhead stripper column condensers.

Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchangers as vapor condensers
Tranter Shell & Plate Heat Exchangers gas oil fraction and light distillate vapor coolers or sulfur dioxide coolers/preheaters.

Tranter Prime Surface Heat Exchanger banks in mixed waste separator tanks
Tranter Prime Surface Heat Exchangers have found success as heaters in mixed waste separator tanks.
