Event description

Description

Haldor Topsoe is in contact with many pilot plant facilities throughout the world in connection with the testing of Topsoe’s hydroprocessing catalysts, and we have seen an interest in good pilot plant testing practice from many refiners performing this type of testing. In the selection of the optimum catalyst system for an industrial unit, pilot plant testing is for some refiners a very important decision factor. It is obvious that the pilot testing should be conducted in such a way that reliable performance data are obtained.

We are pleased to invite you to attend a workshop on good pilot plant testing practice. Our aim is to gather people working with pilot plant testing for discussions in an open atmosphere of topics relevant to performing reliable testing of hydroprocessing catalysts and also for sharing of experience. This being a workshop, we are looking forward to the contributions from all participants.

The possible topics to be discussed are as follows:

• How to load and start a pilot plant unit properly?

• How to conduct mass balances in once-through and recycle set-ups?

• How to prepare a test protocol and which analyses to select?

• Is it possible to study catalyst deactivation and ageing in a pilot test?

• How to handle and treat data in pilot plant testing (database, quality check, etc.)?

• How to optimize sampling methods?

• How to run safe pilot tests?

• How to design a pilot plant unit?

• How are the results from the pilot tests used and evaluated?

Note that this is a workshop, not a course; therefore, participants are expected to make presentations about some selected topics. Furthermore, everything that will be shown and discussed during the workshop will be on a non-confidential basis.

The workshop is free of charge; however, expenses related to travel and accommodation should be covered by the participants. Details about the venue in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil will be confirmed later on.
