The technical field to which the invention relates.

The present invention relates to an apparatus and method for isomerization of the flow of hydrocarbons.

The level of technology

Isomerization of light paraffins in many cases provide for increasing the octane number of gasoline. Typically, such methods isomerization is performed with a separate light fractions of hydrocarbons. As an example, the isomerization of butane, or pentane and/or hexane (hereinafter may be called for short the isomerization of pentane-hexane) is conducted with the aim of improving the quality of gasoline in a separate device for isomerization. Typically, the isomerization of butane and pentane-hexane is carried out in a process of liquid/steam or steam phase in a fixed bed of catalyst. In the reactor can do the feedstock of light paraffins, mixed with gas containing significant amounts of hydrogen.

When isomerization of butane or pentane-hexane water is a harmful substance, which can reduce the service life of the catalyst in the reactor. Therefore, it is desirable to remove the water before rich hydrogen gas and/or paraffin feedstock will be available in the reactor. Therefore, usually as a source of raw materials, and the specified gas to remove water is passed through a separate apparatus for the dehydration (drying).

In many of the cases, two desiccant is used by placing them in series or parallel with the alternate operations of regeneration, regardless of whether the processed fluid medium gas, rich in hydrogen, or a hydrocarbon containing butane or pentane and butane. Accordingly, one dehumidifier can operate, while the other desiccant may be in regeneration mode. At the final stage of regeneration of the desiccant may be a gaseous regenerating agent, if the dryer is designed for drying gas, or liquid regenerating agent, if the desiccant is a desiccant hydrocarbons. Depending on the hydrocarbon fraction, which is subjected to isomerization, regenerating agent may include, mainly, the isomerized product, such as isobutane or at least one product from isopentane and isohexane (which hereinafter may be called the isopentane-isohexane); or regenerating agent may include a mixture of one or more different compounds with branched-chain, compounds are of normal structure and cyclic compounds. In another example, as a rule, regenerating agent blow away (wash away) from the dryer before the regenerated desiccant actuate or as you enter the desiccant in action. Regenerating agent can be removed from the system as a pure stream.

Gaseous regenerating agent with whom to give malfunctions placed downstream technological devices. In particular, gaseous regenerating agent can cause a drop in temperature of the reaction as this regenerating agent replaces the hydrogen used in the reactor, and violates the molar ratio of hydrogen:hydrocarbon in the reactor. In addition, normally gaseous regenerating agent has a greater molecular weight than the gas rich in hydrogen. As a result, the replacement of gas rich in hydrogen, can disrupt the processes regulating the gas flow, namely the flow rate of feed (hydrogen) gas, and upset the regulation of the pressure in a distillation column, which is usually used below in the direction of flow from the reactor. Thus, there is a need to mitigate the above undesirable effects the regeneration of the desiccant gas in order to prevent disruption of the functioning of the apparatus below the stream.

The invention

One example embodiment of the invention may be setup for isomerization stream of hydrocarbons rich in a C4 hydrocarbon and/or at least one of the hydrocarbons C5 and C6. Installation can contain the first desiccant and the second desiccant adapted to receive a fluid medium containing at least one reagent, and a reaction zone, a chamber connected with the first desiccant for receiving the fluid from the containing a series, at least one reagent, and a built also with the second desiccant for receiving a regenerating agent. Usually the first dehumidifier operates in the first mode for dewatering fluid medium containing at least one reagent, and the second dehumidifier operates in the second mode, during regeneration with a regenerating agent. Regenerating agent can pass through removal system (by displacement) regenerating agent is performed in the direction from top to bottom, designed to regulate the flow of regenerating agent discharged from the second desiccant.

Another example embodiment of the invention may be a method for regenerating at least one desiccant installation for isomerization stream of hydrocarbons rich in a C4 hydrocarbon and/or rich in at least one of the hydrocarbons C5 and C6. The method may include the regeneration of at least one desiccant containing regenerating agent, the displacement of regenerating agent, at least one drier for a certain period of time, and the output of the remote by pushing regenerating agent from the process to minimize disturbances during technological operations downstream.

Another example embodiment may be a way of regenera the AI, at least one zone of the drying installation for isomerization stream of hydrocarbons. The method may include the displacement of the used regenerating agent, rich in C4 hydrocarbon and/or rich in at least one of the hydrocarbons C5 and C6, at least one drying zone for a certain period of time, using dehydrated fluid environment containing reagent to minimize violations when conducting one or more transactions below along the flow path, and the output is driven from the desiccant regenerating agent from the process.

Thus, disclosed herein embodiments can minimize violations in the operations below in the direction of flow from a zone of drying fluid by displacement of the used regenerating agent from the zone of drying and remote regenerating agent from the process. System displacement regenerating agent in the downward direction is used to displace used regenerant agent using dehydrated fluid medium.

Detailed description

In Fig.1 shows the installation of 100 for isomerization stream of hydrocarbons. In General, this facility 100 may receive the fluid containing at least one regenerating agent 110, passing through the pipeline 210 or lines of pipe 410. Normally fluid 110 can be a liquid stream of hydrocarbons in the pipeline 210 or rich in hydrogen gas in the pipeline 410. Liquid flow of hydrocarbons can be stream rich in coal is hydrogen, C4, for example Bhutan, if the installation 100 is setup for the isomerization of C4 hydrocarbons. Alternatively, the liquid flow of hydrocarbons can be rich in hydrocarbons, C5-C6, such as pentane-hexane, if the installation 100 is a unit for isomerization of hydrocarbons C5-C6. Typical installation of both types are disclosed, for example, in source: Nelson A. Cusher, UOP Butamer Process and UOP Penex Process of the Handbook of Petroleum Refining Processes, Third Edition, Robert A. Meyers, Editor, 2004, p.9.7-9.27. However, in some embodiments installation 100 can also be used for the simultaneous isomerization of flow of one or more of butane, one or more of pentane and one or more hexanol. It should be noted that isomerization reactions include those in which the quality of raw materials, mainly used normal paraffins and isomerization product - branched paraffins, and also such that as the source of raw materials, mainly used branched paraffins, and as a product of isomerization of normal paraffins. In other words, the liquid flow of hydrocarbons can be rich in isobutane or branched hydrocarbons C5-C6. Other isomerization reactions carried out with the participation of hydrocarbons, C4, or C5-C6, are also within the scope of the present invention.

Supramania the following disclosure of the invention, the term "liquid hydrocarbon" and "regenerating agent" may refer to a generalized and need to understand that they are applicable, for example, to install for the isomerization of C4 hydrocarbon or installation for the isomerization of hydrocarbons C5-C6. As an example, the flow of hydrocarbons rich in a C4 hydrocarbon, may be subjected to isomerization reactor for isomerization of C4 hydrocarbons and a product containing isomerized hydrocarbons C4, can be used as a regenerating agent in the isomerization of C4. Similarly, the flow of hydrocarbons, rich in hydrocarbons, C5-C6, can be Samaritan in the reactor for isomerization of hydrocarbons, C5-C6, and a product containing samaritane hydrocarbons, C5-C6, can be used as a regenerating agent in the isomerization of hydrocarbons C5-C6. However, within the scope of the present invention remains the flow of regenerating agent, abstracted from one or more places of the implementation of the isomerization process, for example from the area of fractional separation of dehumidifiers or possibly even at the location external to the isomerization process. As a regenerating agent can be used, for example, nitrogen from a source external to the isomerization process.

Installation 100 may contain one or more zones 150 drying, for example an area of 250 drying (dehydration) of the liquid and an area of 450 gas drying, and one the or more locations of the technological operations 160, downstream, such as the reaction zone 170 and area 180 fractionation. Area 250 dehydration of liquid can be formed in the first device 200 for draining the fluid, and the area 450 for drying gas may be formed in the second device 400 for draining the fluid. The apparatus 400 is described in more detail below. Area 250 dehydration fluid can be liquid flow of hydrocarbons from the pipeline 210 and area 450 dehydration can take a gas rich in hydrogen from the pipeline 410. Although the figure is not shown, you must understand that for the transportation of liquid flow of hydrocarbons and gas, rich in hydrogen may be used in equipment for handling a fluid medium, such as pumps and compressors, respectively. Alternatively, other fluid medium may have sufficient pressure, and therefore the use of such equipment is not required. After passing zones 250 and 450 drying the liquid flow of hydrocarbons and gas, rich in hydrogen can be merged lower in the flow direction of the flow from areas 250 and 450 drying, for example in the reaction zone 170.

One or more devices 160, placed downstream, can be separated with the formation of the reaction zone 170, which may contain the first reactor 172 and the second reactor 174 placed in series with the pen the first reactor 172, and zone 180 fractionation, which can be placed one or more distillation columns 192. Although the figure shows only the first reactor 172 and the second reactor 174, it should be understood that the reaction zone 170 may also contain other equipment or devices, such as one or more heaters, compressor recycle gas separation capacity and additional reactors. Alternatively, the reactor 172 and 174 may be included in one operation. The stream resulting from the reaction zone 170 may flow through the pipe 176 to the zone 180 fractionation.

Area 180 fractionation may contain one or more distillation columns 192. Although in Fig.1 shows one distillation column 192, installation can be used two or more distillation columns arranged in series and/or parallel. Distillation column 192 can produce one or more products 182 separation, as for example, the first product consisting of one or more gaseous products sent, for example, combustible gas by pipeline 184, and a second or isomerized product transported by pipeline 186. Some portion of the second product can be designated by a pipe 188 and use avana as a regenerating agent. Used regenerating agent can be returned back to the isomerized product flowing in the pipe 190, as will be describe below. The combined stream may be directed into the storage tank isomerizing product in a distillation column or other technological device.

In Fig.2 shows a device 400 for the dehydration of gaseous fluid. The specified device for drying a gaseous fluid may be used for drying a gas stream, for example a gas stream rich in hydrogen. Typically, a device 400 for drying a gaseous fluid medium contains at least one desiccant 454, one or more valves 460, the system a and 465b displacement regenerating agent from the top down and the heater 510. Usually, at least one drier 454 includes a first desiccant 456 gas and the second desiccant 458 gas. These dehumidifiers 456 and 458 can be placed in the zone 450 gas drying, shown in Fig.1. In addition, each drier 456 and 458 may contain molecular sieve, which is the absorption and/or adsorption of water and other undesirable chemical compounds, such as carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, and to establish appropriate internal zone or sub-zone drying. In General, each drier 456 and 458 run the t in the first mode, dehydration rich in hydrogen passing through the drier, and in the second mode to regenerate the desiccant. These dehumidifiers 456 and 458 can be placed sequentially and regenerated alternately when running other desiccant.

One or more valves 460 may include a valve 462, valve 464, valve 466, valve 468, valve 470, valve 472, valve 474, valve 476 valve 478, valve 480, valve 482, valve 484, valve 475 and valve 498. Various combinations of valves 460 can be opened and closed in order to direct the process flow for implementing the first and second mode of operation of the dryers.

In one example embodiment, the system displacement regenerating agent in the downward direction, including parts a and 465b, may contain such equipment, as an indicator 496 flow control valve 498, pipeline 430, valve 464, valve 475 and pipeline 477. The indicator 496 flow may be in communication with the control valve 498, and the indicator 496 flow control valve 498 and valve 464 can be connected to the pipeline 430, forming, thus, part a system. The heater 510 may include a steam heater 514 and superheater 518.

In one embodiment, the regeneration gas, for example gas, rich in hydrogen, is usually injected through the pipeline 410. In this example, the desiccant 458 who operate in the first mode - mode of draining the fluid, while the drier 456 is in the second mode to the regeneration mode. In this case, the gas may flow in the pipe 410 and pass through the valve 478 and 480 in the first desiccant 458, and valves 474 and 476 may be closed. Usually when conducting gas drying in the dehydrator 458 valves 466 and 470 are also closed. After that, the dried gas can be transported through the valves 472 and 468 and through the first pipe 420 into the reaction zone 170, as shown in Fig.1.

All this time the second drier 456 gas is in the regeneration mode. Typically, the regeneration is a multi-stage process that uses liquid regenerating agent coming from the pipe 188, shown in Fig.1, which can be routed to the heater 510. In the process of regeneration regenerating agent may be gradually heated with the steam heater 514 and then using both the first heater 514 and superheater 518 as long as the regenerating agent will not be heated to a temperature sufficient to deformirovaniya water from the molecular sieve. Usually regenerating agent flows through the steam heater 514, superheater 518 and then by pipeline 488 passing through the valve 482 comes up gas drier 456. Regenerating agent may sequentially pass through ossiter, the valve 484 and pipeline 508 before it is cooled using, for example, cooling water heat exchanger and is returned to the pipeline 190, shown in Fig.1. With the valves 462, 475, 474 and 476 are normally closed.

Then regenerating agent may be slowly cooled by pre-shutdown superheater 518, but at the same time continue the evaporation and heating of the regenerating agent in the steam heater 514 and the continuous passage of regenerating agent through the drier 456. Thus, the drier 456 and associated equipment can be cooled at a slow temperature decrease. At the end of the regeneration process in the drier 456 is usually used regenerating agent in the form of a gas.

After completion of the regeneration process used regenerating agent can be removed from the drier 456 through the open valve 475 and pipeline 477 using system a and 465b displacement regenerating agent in the downward direction. When using a part of the dry gas rich in hydrogen by pipeline 420 is passed through the indicator 496 flow control valve 498, open valve 464, pipeline 430 and open valve 462. When using 465b superseded by regenerating agent is passed through the valve 475 and output from the process pipeline 477. In the stamping used regenerating agent to carry out so, to minimize irregularities in the conduct of one or more operations downstream, in particular in the reaction zone 170 and 180 fractionation. For example, the control valve 498 can be calibrated to regulate the flow rate of the drained gas, rich in hydrogen. This flow rate can be calculated based on the desired period of time to ensure complete removal of the used regenerating agent without conducting operations with excessive loss of time and there has been no disruption in the operations below in the direction of flow. In addition, the opening of the control valve 498 can be controlled so that the flow of dry gas in the pipeline 430 was increased gradually to achieve a given flow rate. In this case, a gradual increase of the flow rate of dry gas in the pipeline 430 helps to avoid violations in the operations downstream, for example in the reaction zone or in the zone of the fractionation. Upon expiration of a predefined period of time required to displace a regenerating agent, can be produced by switching operations by closing valves 464 and 475, opening valve 466, 474, 476 and closing valve 468, 472, 478 and 480, so that the drier 456 provided drainage gas. At this stage, the desiccant 458 is in the mode of the regeneration. In addition, at the end of the stage of removing the used regenerating agent consumption of dry gas in the pipeline 430 can be gradually reduced with the regulating valve 498 in order to minimize violations in the operations below in the direction of flow.

Although there is described the processes of drying and regeneration of the respective dryers 458 and 456, it should be understood that they can be used for additional piping and/or valves, so that each drier 456 and 458 can function as modes of drying and regeneration, and a serial connection. As an example, dehumidifiers 456 and 458 after regeneration can be included in the sequential mode of operation, for example, so that the drier 456 functioned delayed in time with respect to the desiccant 458.
