With increasing environmental regulations, refineries are looking to decarbonise operations and produce cleaner fuels. Complex refineries, containing a large number of high-value conversion units, have a greater flexibility for the production of cleaner fuels and lighter products than crude oil that contains higher sulphur levels.
As a global leader in air and gas handling equipment Howden is supporting the industry in their transition to decarbonise and optimise the refining process. Howden’s energy efficient equipment operates safely across a wide range of refinery applications ranging from site utilities to the large critical process applications and from bare shaft to fully packaged equipment.
- Howden’s compressor can deliver high-pressure hydrogen for hydrotreating units or to feed and recover gas from processes.
- High efficiency blowers and fans supply air for SRU or ensure mechanical vapour recompression in ZLD.
- Howden fans extract residual gases, ensure process cooling and building ventilation, supply air for combustion and are widely used as boiler ID and FD fans.
