DMDS Evolution® E2 for anti-coking in Propane and Butane Dehydrogenation units
Dimethyl disulfide, DMDS Evolution® E2, is the leading sulfur-based, anti-coking and corrosion inhibition technology that is used globally in Propane Dehydrogenation (PDH) and Butane Dehydrogenation (BDH) units. Hydrocarbons exposed to elevated temperatures form coke, which can cause metal carburization and affect heat transfer and flow dynamics. In less than 15 minutes, sufficient coke is formed to require dehydrogenation unit shut down for immediate cleaning and decoking. This anti-coking method is superior in performance and generally preferred compare to physical pipeline, cracker coating or polishing.
DMDS Evolution® E2 for hydrotreated vegetable oil units
Dimethyl disulfide, DMDS Evolution® E2, is the standard sulfiding agent to activate catalyst for hydrotreated vegetable oil units. The main process to manufacture renewable diesel converts renewable feedstock through a catalytic hydrogenation and an isomeration. This process uses well-known heterogeneous catalysts that require a sulfiding with DMDS Evolution® E2 to be active.
DMDS Evolution® E2 for steamcracker coking mitigation
Ethylene is the largest volume of basic chemical produced by the steamcracking of hydrocarbons. Cracking to produce olefins, suffers from side reactions that product carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon deposits on the cracking coils. Excess of CO leads to off spec ethylene and while fast coking reduces cracking furnace run lengths, productivity and profitability. Fortunately, a very low concentration of DMDS Evolution® E2 injected in the cracking furnace mitigates those side reactions. DMDS Evolution® E2 decomposes in the cracking tube only into H2S and methane without solid or coke deposit. By modifying the surface composition of the cracking tube, H2S poisons the metal sites involved in the formation of CO and coke. Year after year, all licensors of ethylene furnaces and olefins manufacturers recommend injecting DMDS Evolution® E2 to meet the designed performance.
DMDS Evolution® E2, the most efficient sulfiding and anticoking polysulfide
