HF Alkylation Team Room

think simulation | getting the chemistry right

Welcome members

Project objective

To give engineers ionic modeling capabilities for HF Alkylation

 

  • To facilitate development of accurate IOWs

  • To minimize corrosion of phase-change-driven water rich HF

  • For process optimization

  • For safer operation of HF Alkylation units 
     

Current actions - July  2019

 

  • Members: please send Pat & Andy any description of general, structural, qualitative or quantitative characterization of the ASOs you are seeing in your HF Alkylation process. If you are working with multiple units or see different types of ASOs, please send us the multiple information. We will be developing ASO 'types' to include in your simulations and so knowing as much as possible about your ASOs now is a good preparation!
     

  • Members: please start data collection based on the worksheet 19HF-001
     

  • Modelers: are waiting for the ASO information from members to target further ASO searches
     

  • Modelers: are working on the HF-HC parameters for the known hydrocarbons

     

Project meetings 

 

We will schedule a monthly update meeting via web on the 3rd Thursday of the month, beginning in September 2019

​Next meeting

 

19 September 2019 at 10am Eastern USA time

Current actions - Last update 10 September 2020

 

  • Our final meeting of the JIP was held on on 13 August 2020, covering the following topics as a project summary:

    • Electrolyte Thermodynamic Modeling & Key Results

    • Flowsheet ESP Model Learnings

    • Comparisons from Model to Corrosion Experience & Key Learnings

    This last bullet point is a summary from Andy Gysber's key document, updated on this page as 20HF-02 below     

  • Members: 4 new files:

1.    Recording from 13 August: 20HF-023

2.    Slides from 13 August: 20HF-024

3.    UPDATED OLI Flowsheet & Studio Manual: 20HF-015-2 (combined now with the surveys in Studio)

4.    NEW Andy's Final JIP Summary Document, relating modeling predictions to corrosion experience (20HF-025)

Thank you to all of our JIP members for making this such a success.  Special thanks to the OLI team for their persistence and hard work, and to Andy Gysbers for his leadership, not just on the corrosion side, but throughout the whole project.  And one more final thank you to Pat McKenzie, who retired before she could see the JIP through to its conclusion. 

Project meetings 

 

All JIP meetings are concluded as of 13 August 2020.
