DryingTechnologies

The Oil & Gas Business Unit of Quadrimex Chemical is specialized in hydrocarbon drying and sweetening. The Quadrimex Chemical teams can offer the Newton’s® driers Process Design, for a revamping and/or a new grass root unit with a technical follow up
Quadrimex Chemical can supply its own catalysts, Europhtal®, in liquid form for extractive units and in solid form with pre-impregnated charcoal for sweetening units.

Process Design Package

The speciality of Newton’s®  is to optimize existing drying units and the design of new units in the refinery (gasoil, kerosene, LPG,…) and gas, chemical industries and petrochemicals.

Newton’s® provides a technological expertise throughout some engineering projects – from  installations design a right through the supply of consumables adapted to each customer’s specific needs.

Technology

Newton’s® technology can remove water from liquid hydrocarbons. This technology can use different shapes of desiccant briquettes.

Applications

Hydrocarbons dehydration in refineries:
Kerosene
Gasoil
LPG
Alkylation HF

Hydrocarbons dehydration in petrochemical :
Butadiene

 

Advantages

  • Profitability of the technology
  • Low operating costs
  • Controlled water specifications throughout the process
  • A better productivity
  • Less dust : no clogging and no preferantial ways
  • No loss of dehydrating agents: less waste to deal
  • Specific packaging on request
  • Low pressure drop
