Catalytic reforming is a chemical process used to convert petroleum refinery naphthas distilled from crude oil (typically having low octane ratings) into high-octane liquid products called reformates, which are premium blending stocks for high-octane gasoline.
Catalytic reforming is an important process in the refining and petrochemical industries. In the actual catalytic reforming reaction, many unexpected situations may occur. For example, in the case of sudden shutdown, the catalyst will move toward the scallop wedge wire screen tube where the gas is accumulated in the reactor. The scallop tube is subjected to a large external force, which may lead to instability and deformation. Therefore, we must choose high quality wedge wire screen tubes to ensure their compressive strength, flatness, verticality and other factors to improve the catalytic reforming effect.
Catalytic reforming is an important process for improving gasoline quality and producing petrochemical raw materials. Catalytic reformer is one of the most common devices in modern petroleum refineries and petrochemical catalytic reforming joint enterprises.
The high quality wedge wire screen tubes is the important filter element in the catalytic reforming process.
When the reactor is working, the raw materials enter from the inlet at the top of the reactor, and a series of reactions occur under the action of the catalyst. The gas will be collected in the wedge wire screen tube and transferred to the next reaction stage.
So please choose the high quality wedge wire screen tubes and manufacturer if you are in the refining and petrochemical industries.
