APC - Reforming

APC uses a model-based predictive control technology that drives the process towards the desired targets through the manipulation of several variables simultaneously while observing all process constraints. APC has a proven track record in delivering business objectives: reducing energy costs, increasing yields and improving operability.

As a process licensor and catalyst supplier, Axens Horizon is well positioned to offer models and first-hand knowledge of the best strategies for APC projects.

Our control strategy for CCR Reforming consists of:

  • Heaters: Tube Skin temperature and Duty protection
  • Reactors
  • WAIT control for Octane (or aromatics )
  • Feed maximization and Pressure minimization
  • Coke lay-down control by H2/HC minimization
  • Regenerator
  • Coke on catalyst (wt%) control by catalyst flow
  • Coke burn balance between the combustion beds
  • Stabilizer column
  • Reformate RVP control
  • Minimization of Reformate losses in top product
  • Internal reflux minimization
