Petroleum Refining & Water Treatment

The largest volume effluents in petroleum refining include “sour” process water and non-oily/non-sour but highly alkaline process water. Sour water is generated through a number of processes, such as: - Desalting - Topping - Vacuum distillation - Pretreating - Light - Middle distillate hydrodesulphurization - Hydrocracking - Catalytic cracking - Coking - Visbreaking/thermal cracking Sour water may be contaminated with hydrocarbons, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, organic sulfur compounds, organic acids, and phenol. Process water is treated in our advanced filtering system to remove hydrocarbons, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and other compounds.
