Example text

The overhead from the HF stripper is returned to the isostripper overhead system to recover acid and isobutane. A portion of the HF stripper bottoms is used as flushing material. A net bottom stream is withdrawn, defluorinated, and charged to the gas concentration section (C3-C4 splitter) to prevent a buildup of propane in the HF Alkylation unit. An internal depropanizer is required in an HF Alkylation unit processing C3-C4 olefins and may be required with C4 olefin feedstocks if the quantity of propane entering the unit is too high to be rejected economically as previously described.

Treated and dried olefinic feed is charged along with recycle and makeup isobutane (when applicable) to the reactor section of the plant. The combined feed enters the shell of a reactor–heat exchanger through several nozzles positioned to maintain an even temperature throughout the reactor. The heat of reaction is removed by heat exchange with a large volume of coolant flowing through the tubes having a low temperature rise. If cooling water is used, it is then available for further use elsewhere in the unit.

Recent developments propel the Alkylene process technology into the marketplace as a viable option with technical and economic benefits. As the demand for alkylate continues to grow, new alkylation units will help refiners meet the volume and octane requirements of their gasoline pools. The Alkylene process was developed as a safe alternative to commercial liquid acid alkylation technologies. BIBLIOGRAPHY Cara M. Roeseler, Steve M. Black, Dale J. Shields, and Chris D.
