The Criterion University helps to build lasting beneficial relationships with our customers. We hold training courses at centres around the world for refinery engineers and technologists on subjects such as hydrotreating, fluidised catalytic cracking (FCC ) feed pretreatment, ULSD production, hydrocracking and residue upgrading. Catalysis is naturally at the heart of the teaching, though process technology input is frequently provided by experts from Shell Global Solutions. In addition to the standard courses, the Criterion University provides tailored programmes to suit individual customer’s training requirements.
This course will provide attendees with knowledge of the technology, operations and economics of the hydrocracking process. The course is designed for anyone dealing with short and long-term decisions on operational, technological or catalyst management aspects of hydrocracking. Included are practical working sessions that cover multiple aspects of the hydrocracking process from troubleshooting, modeling, and operability to catalyst management.
The workshop will cover topics that include:
- Chemistry, Kinetics & Thermodynamics
- Catalyst Basics and Technology including Recent Developments
- Feedstocks and Products
- Catalyst Poisoning / Fouling
- Process Operational Parameters
- Performance Monitoring
- Process Troubleshooting, Case Studies & Optimisation
- Process Safeguarding
- Configurations & Equipment
- Reactor Internals
