Title (EN) REMOTE MONITORING OF ADSORBER PROCESS UNITS
(FR) SURVEILLANCE À DISTANCE D'UNITÉS DE TRAITEMENT D'ADSORBEURS
Abstract:
(EN) Adsorbers have many purposes in chemical, gas-processing, and petrochemical plants. Adsorbers may be used to remove components from gas streams. Adsorbers may be subjected to various issues, including but not limited to moisture breakthrough, spent catalyst, too high or too low pressure drop, over or under heating, over or under cooling, too high or too low flow rates, which can affect their performance or result in a shutdown of the adsorbers. Monitoring the adsorbers and the processes using adsorbers may be performed to determine if the adsorbent bed is reaching saturation, other problems are occurring, or if equipment failures are imminent. Monitoring also helps to predict behavior or problems in different adsorbers used in the same plant or in other plants and/or processes.
(FR) Les adsorbeurs ont de nombreuses applications dans les usines chimiques, de traitement du gaz et pétrochimiques. Les adsorbeurs peuvent être utilisés pour éliminer des constituants contenus dans des courants gazeux. Les adsorbeurs peuvent être soumis à divers problèmes, notamment mais non exclusivement, une percée d'humidité, un catalyseur usé, une chute de pression trop élevée ou trop basse, un chauffage excessif ou insuffisant, un refroidissement excessif ou insuffisant, des débits trop élevés ou trop faibles, qui peuvent affecter leurs performances ou conduire à un arrêt des adsorbeurs. Une surveillance des adsorbeurs et des traitements faisant appel aux adsorbeurs peut être effectuée pour déterminer si le lit adsorbant atteint une saturation, d'autres problèmes se produisent, ou si des défaillances d'équipement sont imminentes. La surveillance contribue également à prédire le comportement ou les problèmes dans différents adsorbeurs utilisés dans la même usine ou dans d'autres usines et/ou traitements.
