Alfa Laval Packinox for pyrolysis gasoline hydrogenation
Alfa Laval Packinox’s Standard Combined Feed/Effluent Heat Exchanger for cracked gasoline hydrogenation units has proved to be a financially – and environmentally – advantageous solution for this application.DATE 2022-02-03
The example below shows how an aromatic gasoline hydrogenation unit (fig. 1) retrofitted with a single Alfa Laval Packinox Standard Combined Feed/Effluent Heat Exchanger in 1995 (fig. 2) was able to replace three tubular heat exchangers used to pre-heat the feed and H2.
The Packinox design is the largest type of plate heat exchanger currently available anywhere in the world.
