FCC CO Boiler Reconditioning, Saves Client $150,000,000

Norton Engineering identified several low cost upgrades for a client increase the flue gas side  design pressure of the existing CO boilers and further recommended a change in scrubber  technology to reduce boiler back pressure.

Safety Instrumented Systems and Ultra-Low NOx Burners

A refining client contracted Norton Engineering to develop site specific standards for safety instrumented systems for fired heaters and to develop and support projects for more than ten heaters to date.

Refinery Boilers NOx Reduction

A refining client faced potential large capital expenses and rising operational and maintenance costs. The client retained Norton Engineering to screen low cost options and engineer solutions to meet NOx emission targets.

Butyl Rubber Project

A long time petrochemical client contracted Norton Engineering to assist with planning grass roots Poly-isobutylene Projects based on the client’s proprietary technology in Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

Sulfuric Acid Alkylation Reactor Upgrade

Norton Engineering reviewed the operation of the client’s Kellogg® Sulfuric Acid Alkylation unit and proposed and evaluated upgrades to decrease operating costs by reducing acid consumption and reducing sulfur levels.

Sulfuric Acid Alkylation Performance Improvement

Norton Engineering conducted an engineering evaluation of the current reactor and mixers and made recommendations for improvements that could be implemented so the mixing performance and alkylate quality could be improved.

HF Alkylation Rapid Acid Transfer System

Norton Engineering performed dynamic modeling and engineering for an HF Alkylation Unit Rapid Acid Transfer System (RATS) so that tie-ins could be performed during an upcoming turnaround.
