Enhancing Energy Efficiency In The CDU

Enhancing Energy Efficiency In The CDU

Revisiting your crude distillation unit may expose hidden potential for major energy savings. Crude distillation is probably the oldest process in any refinery configuration. In the early days of refining, ‘black oil’ in simple batch stills was used to produce lighting oil (kerosene) as the main product, beside asphalts to meet the needs of the times. Following the development of the internal combustion engine, the need for improved fractionation led to the use of simple fractionation columns. Demand for increased throughputs and higher quality products resulted in the development of continuous fractionation units......
