  • The best answer to Tower fouling

    Operation run length and throughput of refinery units can be badly affected by the salt build up in their fractionators. When ammonium salts sublimate from the gas phase to the solid phase, they can precipitate on the tower trays. The first consequence is that oil and gas flows are restricted and delta pressure increases as observable phenomena. Under these conditions, the throughput ...
