HF Alkylation in Refining: Thermodynamics and process simulation to mitigate corrosion

March 23, 2021


The HF alkylation process converts low molecular-weight alkenes and iso-paraffins into larger branched-chain paraffinic hydrocarbons with a high-octane number (MON and RON) and low RVP using HF as the catalyst. A common problem in this process is the corrosion caused by the absorbed water to the HF catalyst.

The Science of Adsorption and Ion Exchange Processes in Industrial Water Treatment

February 9, 2021


Adsorption reactions are ubiquitous to industrial processes including industrial water treatment, gas processing as well as mining and metals. They are an important part of water treatment processing for separation and purification applications. 

Thermodynamic Foundations of Corrosion

November 24, 2020


To accurately predict and mitigate corrosion risk with simulation models, it is necessary to know the properties of corrosive environments, the metallurgical properties of the alloys that undergo corrosion, and the interactions between the metals and the environment, which are in turn is determined by the interfacial reactions and mass transfer effects.

Mitigating Corrosion with an Electrolyte Digital Twin

October 29, 2020

According to NACE, the worldwide corrosion authority, corrosion has caused the upstream offshore production and refining industries USD 65 billion/year in financial loss. They recommend that operators implement a corrosion management system, which can reduce the cost of corrosive damage by 15-35%. Incorporating a rigorous, asset-wide predictive digital twin is vital for achieving these reductions.

Lithium Mining: Maximizing yields and lowering costs with electrolyte simulations

June 4, 2020

Lithium demand is expected to increase several-fold in this decade, and effective sourcing of lithium from existing and new deposits is the challenge moving forward. The key sources of lithium include saline lakes (salars), lithium-bearing minerals, and to a lesser degree, lithium-bearing clays, recycled batteries, oilfield produced water, hydrothermal deposits, and seawater.  

Carbon Capture - CO2-Emission.jpg
Mitigating Corrosion Risk in Pipelines and Ships during Carbon Transportation

May 7, 2020

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) are extremely important to reduce CO2 emissions to limit the global temperature rise. During carbon transportation, process impurities like NO2, SO2, H2S, etc can form highly corrosive acids that can lead to catastrophic failure of carbon steel pipelines or tanks.
