Crude Unit Fouling
Crude unit preheat and furnace fouling are becoming an increasing problem as refiners process heavier opportunity crudes and light tight oils (LTOs). High filterable solids, high metals loading and poor feedstock compatibility can all impact fouling rates. This fouling can directly impact equipment efficiencies, unit run length and energy costs. The Nalco Water solution aims to minimise costs associated with fouling and provide proven energy savings.
