Frames announces kerosene treatment contract

July 18/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Frames has designed and supplied an electrostatic colaescer for kerosene treatment to the Compania Espanola de Petroleos, S.A.U. (Cepsa) San Roque Refinery, located in the Bay of Gibraltar in Spain, said Hydrocarbonengineering.

Frames electrostatic coalescence technology is used as a prewash to reduce the acidity of a kerosene feed stream. During the processing of refinery-produced feedstocks various impurities are left in the petrochemical end-products. Some of these impurities can be removed by using Frames Electrostatic Coalescers. At the San Roque Refinery, the Frames Electrostatic Coalescer Prewash vessel has been installed to reduce the acidity of the kerosene feed stream by neutralizing naphthenic acids utilizing a weak caustic solution.

Cepsa selected Frames electrostatic coalescence technology for this project as it provides a high quality technical solution that reduces the use of chemicals and minimizing disposal requirements.

"We are encouraged to see that Frames Electrostatic Coalescers are selected by our clients in a growing number of refineries across the world, says Geert Willemse, Product Specialist Separators & Treaters at Frames. It shows that our equipment is recognized as a cost-effective solution for reducing impurities for a wide range of feed streams."

The electrostatic process utilized in Frames Electrostatic Coalescers is a highly effective way to remove the impurities found in various distillate streams. It works by removing impurities from the distillate through the addition of an aqueous chemical reagent to the distillate stream, dispersing the reagent throughout the stream in extremely small droplets and exposing the mixture to the influence of an electric field. Once exposed to the electric field, the reagent is coalesced and separated from the distillate, taking along with it impurities that react with or dissolve in that reagent. The reagent is virtually insoluble in the oil this enables the separation of the reagent and the impurities from the oil.
