INNOVATION IN OIL AND GAS
Pall India Pvt Ltd
Slurry Oil Backwash Filter System
Pall is a global leader in filtration and purification system technologies. This
project was to provide a filtration station for the Incheon Oil plant in South
Korea. The filter system processes sluggish oil to remove solid particles and
water before sending the oil for further processing. The filtered water is
The designers saved time by using deliverables and built-in libraries from
AutoPLANT modules. During design reviews, the 3D model generated from
AutoPLANT enabled the customer to see the details and suggest modifications.
These more efficient processes cut the design time in half and enabled the team
to deliver error-free reports.
Crystalliser Disk Regenerativ
Orsk and Kstovo, Russia
Russian firm Petrochim Engineering, in cooperation with Israel-based Yutec
Technologies, designed a disk-type crystallizer for a dewaxing unit to obtain
higher quality oils to meet strict emission regulations. The goals were to reduce
overall dimensions, ensure soundless unit operation, and define loads on vessel
body and internals with maximum accuracy.
AutoPIPE designed the crystallizer components, reduced vessel dimensions, and
defined optimum locations for disks and supports on the 8-meter bearing hollow
shaft. Using this software for calculation of forces due to external loads also
accelerated design. The new unit increased dewaxed oil yield by 3 to 4 percent
and decreased oil content in slack wax by 30 percent. Harmful solvent leaks
were completely eliminated, and noise was considerably reduced.
