Refinery Industry

Petroleum refineries and petrochemical processing, which are notorious for their oily and bio recalcitrant wastewater, are not exempted from this age-old class of adsorbents. Possessing well-developed porous structures with a surface area ranging from 1000 to 1800 m2/ g. Petroleum products are hazardous both for humans and nature. Diesel oil is one of the main contaminants of land but also of sea, during its transportation. Currently, there are many different clean-up techniques for petroleum products. One of the most common is adsorption by Activated Carbon.

Specially developed activated carbon (GAC) is being used as catalyst carriers for hydrocarbon sweetening and this process involves the catalytic extraction of mercaptans from refinery products. Activated carbon also finds it’s application in field condensate purification where heavier hydrocarbons and other coloured bodies are removed.

Core Carbon's Pvt. Ltd,. provides best in class of “Core-GAR” product series of Activated Carbon, which is suitable for refinery industries.

“Core-GAR” product series of Coconut shell based Activated Carbon are used in various application, such as

  • Removal of mercaptans
  • improve Efficiency of Gas Scrubbers Remove the longer-chain hydrocarbon contaminants by circulating a split stream of the glycol flow through a GAC adsorber
  • Purifying Refinery Products A dual-bed GAC adsorber is a twophase pressure swing system that allows continuous hydrogen purification and provides 99% pure hydrogen
  • Catalyst Protection and Catalyst Support remove hydrogen sulfide and low-molecular-weight organic sulfur compounds from gas streams that do not contain oxygen
