Learn How a European Refinery Saved Millions by Optimizing their Crude Preheat Train Network

In a previous blog titled "Reduce Energy Costs in Refineries by Better Management of Heat Exchangers, " I described how energy consumption in a refinery can be affected by the layout of the heat exchanger network. Rigorous simulation of heat exchanger units, as well as the simulation of operations of the distillation units in the context of the broader refinery process simulation, allows engineers to identify opportunities to enhance the performance of their refinery process by improving their energy utilization. This is made possible by the latest advanced process simulation software that provides rigorous simulation of heat exchanger and column operations within the broader process simulation.
