Reforming unit market gains impetus from spike in demand for high-octane gasoline

tmr-160x160

A reforming unit, also known as a catalytic or thermal reformer, is a key component of the petroleum refining process. A reforming unit helps carry out a chemical process that enables the conversion of petroleum refinery naphthas, which are distilled from crude oil, into high-octane liquids. These high-octane liquids are known as reformates, which in turn are much sought after for their attributes as high-quality blending stocks for high-octane gasoline.

By converting low-octane paraffins into branched alkanes and cyclic naphthenes, it is possible to dehydrogenate these to produce high-octane aromatic hydrocarbons. Hydrogen gas, which is a by-product of the dehydrogenation process, can further be used in hydrocracking and other processes.

One of the most important drivers of the reforming unit market is the spike in demand for high-octane gasoline. However, reforming units also come with their share of disadvantages, which will likely stand in the way of optimal market growth. Among the greatest challenges faced in a reforming unit is maintaining the right outlet temperature across all reactors. In the event an unscheduled shutdown occurs in the reforming unit, there is a high chance that the output of other units will also be adversely impacted. The ultimate impact of this is a monetary loss that the plant or company will have to incur.

The reforming process entails the use of three catalyst reactors installed separately. Each of these reactors has a precisely controlled environment, where the temperature and pressure are both kept within specific levels. Naphtha and heavy straight run (HSR) gasoline, which are derived from the crude distillation unit, are the most commonly used feedstock for catalytic reformers. A catalytic reformer also supplies benzene toluene xylene (BTX), which is sold to chemical plants to earn additional revenue.

Basis process, the report segments the global reforming unit market into: Thermal and catalytic reforming. A thermal reforming unit, as can be gauged from the name, requires extremely high temperatures to operate, whereas this isn’t the case with a catalytic reforming unit. A thermal reforming unit offers residual products such as gas, residual oil, and gasoline. It is possible to increase the yield of these products by using a catalyst.

The report conducts a detailed analysis of the key players that have a strong presence in the global reforming unit market. Among the companies profiled are: KBR Inc., Atlantic Richfield Oil Company, Ventech Engineers International LLC, KASUS Technical Service & Consulting GmbH, Chevron Corporation, Siemens Industry, Inc., Larsen & Toubro Limited, Linde AG, and Honeywell International Inc.

Petroleum coke market – A dearer energy alternative to coal

Ceaseless energy needs of the cement and energy industries in the developing nations of Asia Pacific will lead the global petroleum coke (petcoke) market to reach new heights till 2020, says Transparency Market Research (TMR). The report states that the global petroleum coke market will exhibit a CAGR of 8.5% from 2014 to 2020 for the market to reach a valuation of US$24.11 billion by 2020 increasing from US$13.28 billion in 2013. The report, titled “Petroleum Coke Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 – 2020”, is available for sale on the company website.

The report states that, presently, petcoke trade is swinging east due to the heavy demand for fuel grade coke in the industrializing countries of Asia Pacific. In this region, China and India are exhibiting sizeable demand for petcoke due to the unprecedented demand for power to run these industries. On the contrary, pollution-causing traits and the environmental concerns about the same are not encouraging the utilization of petcoke. Thus, the growth of the market is negatively affected. Nevertheless, to counter this, market participants can engage in gasification of petcoke, which will lead to the production of clean power and increase profit margins in return.

Download Free Research Brochure:http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=403

The report divides the global petcoke market in the basis of product type, end-use, and region. By product type, fuel grade and calcined coke are the segments of the market. Between the two, it is the fuel grade product type that will lead the market during the forecast period. In 2013, fuel-grade petcoke held more than 72.0% of the overall market, whereas calcined type held 26.0% of the market. This is mainly due to its cost-effectiveness in comparison with coal and natural gas. Fuel grade petcoke also has the advantage of high calorific value in comparison with natural gas and coal.

However, increasing aluminum production will boost the demand for calcined petcoke during the forecast period, says the report. Calcined petcoke is also used in paints and coatings, steel, paper, and fertilizers, which will boost the demand for the product in the coming years.

Currently, Asia Pacific is the dominant region for petroleum coke. In 2013, the region contributed almost 32% of the revenue of the global market. This is attributed to the massive demand for petcoke from India and China. In these countries, the power and cement industries account for bulk consumption of petcoke.

In the same year, at 24%, Europe held slightly less than a quarter of the global market for petroleum coke, adds the report. However, Asia Pacific and Europe will register the highest growth rate in the global petroleum coke market during the report’s forecast period, which will be the target regions for companies operating in this market.

High Performance Anti-corrosion Coatings Market for Oil & Gas Industry – Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 – 2023

ALBANY, New York, March 02, 2016: High performance anti-corrosion coatings are enhanced protective coatings that are used to prevent corrosion of metal and concrete substrates. These coatings are sometimes referred to as heavy-duty coatings as they are specifically used in protecting metal and concrete structures that are continuously exposed to extreme corrosive surroundings. Excellent adhesion on substrates, durability, better resistance to heat and moisture, and good gloss retention are key attributes of high performance anti-corrosion coatings. High performance anti-corrosion coatings are primarily used in core industries such as oil & gas, marine, paper & pulp, power generation, piping, storage tanks, electrical, chemical processing, and construction. High performance anti-corrosion coatings are classified based on the coating resin that is incorporated during their processing. Epoxy, urethane, acrylic, alkyd, ethyl silicate, vinyl, and polyester are key coating products that are currently used in high performance industrial applications. Furthermore, these coatings are also available in various formulation systems such as solvent borne, water borne, radiation cured, and powder.

High performance anti-corrosion coatings are primarily manufactured by using raw materials derived from petrochemicals. Epoxy coatings, urethane coatings, and acrylic coatings are major product segments of the global high performance coatings market. Epoxy coatings was the largest product segment of the global high performance anti-corrosion coatings market in 2014. In terms of volume, epoxy coatings accounted for over 55% of the global demand for high performance anti-corrosion coatings in 2014. Epoxy coatings provide excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance as well as high mechanical strength when applied to substrates. This product segment is anticipated to maintain its leading position during the forecast period as it can also be manufactured via bio-based raw material sources, thus reducing dependency on petrochemicals.

Research Report:http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/high-performance-anticorrosion-coatings-market.html

However, acrylic coatings is projected to be the fastest-growing product segment of the high performance anti-corrosion coatings market by 2023. These coatings have high compatibility with metal substrates, better color retention rates when exposed to harsh climatic conditions, and are chemically inert. Hence, they are expected to replace other high performance anti-corrosion coatings, especially alkyd coatings, in the near future.

The global high performance anti-corrosion market is also segmented on the basis of demand from various end-user industries. Oil & gas, power generation, marine, construction, and tanks & pipes are key end-user segments of the high performance anti-corrosion coatings market. Oil & gas was the largest end-user of the high performance anti-corrosion coatings market in 2014, followed by construction and tanks & pipes industries. This end-user segment held a market share of around 30% in 2014. High performance anti-corrosion coatings have exclusive applications in transmission pipelines, oil storage tanks, drilling equipment, and other oil rig parts in this end-user industry. However, power generation is projected to provide significant growth opportunities for high performance anti-corrosion coatings as it is likely to be the fastest-growing segment among other end-users during the forecast period.

In terms of demand, Asia Pacific is likely to hold the largest share of the high performance anti-corrosion coatings market followed by Europe by the end of 2023. Robust growth in the global high performance anti-corrosion coatings market is expected in Asia Pacific due to rise in consumption in the region’s oil & gas, construction, and marine end-user industries. However, Middle East & Africa is expected to witness the fastest growth due to increasing industrial activities in the oil & gas sector. Latin America is projected to be an emerging market for high performance anti-corrosion coatings, especially in Brazil by the end of 2023. Other global regions, especially Europe and North America, are estimated to witness steady market growth by 2023. Steady growth in these regions is anticipated to be supported by power generation and tanks & pipes industries.

Key global manufacturers of high performance anti-corrosion coatings include Akzo Nobel N.V., The 3M Company, The Sherwin-Williams Company, Nippon Paint Co., Ltd., PPG Industries Inc., Jotun A/S, Chugoku Marine Paints, Ltd., and Hempel A/S.

Borealis introduces lightweight materials for composite applications and expands Fibremod™ capacity at Monza plant

borealis-logo-tagline

 

Borealis, leading provider of innovative, value-creating plastics solutions, introduces a complete polypropylene (PP) portfolio for lightweight composite applications. These new polypropylene composite-based application solutions will be presented for the first time at the upcoming VDI International Conference on Plastics in Automotive Engineering taking place in Mannheim, Germany. Borealis also reports a capacity expansion of the long glass fibre reinforced polypropylene (PP-LGF) production line in Monza, Italy.

Borealis PP for composite applications: excellent mechanical properties and lighter weight for most demanding automotive parts.

The necessity for vehicle weight reduction to improve fuel efficiency and thus enhance sustainability continues to grow, increasing the use of alternative, lighter materials in all areas of a car. Over the years, various materials, most commonly thermosetting polymers, have been used to replace steel and aluminium especially for high demanding structural and safety related parts. However, thermoplastic resins such as PP have been gaining in favour due to their excellent performance, easy processability and affordable costs.

With the launch of the material solutions for composite based applications, Borealis is leveraging its proprietary technologies and processes to offer a complete PP product package for advanced lightweighting of automotive parts.

Borealis PP for composite applications offers a variety of compelling benefits such as improved strength and impact performance, very good dimensional stability and low thermal expansion, as well as easier and lower energy processing compared to engineering plastics, and full recyclability.

Cultivating partnerships for material innovations

Borealis has been working closely with key value chain partners to develop materials for specific composite applications. The most promising area of development is seen to be in structural carriers, where the substitution of PP for conventional materials like steel and more expensive engineering plastics is being accelerated. In addition to collaboration with composite sheet and tape producers, to whom Borealis supplies its innovative PP resins, Borealis is in the advanced development stage in pilot projects with several Tier 1 suppliers. Working closely with Brose, the Coburg, Germany-based firm known for its innovative mechatronics systems for doors and seats as well as electric motors, Borealis has supported the engineering of a PP composite and PP short glass fibre based seat carrier solution replacing steel. Another PP composite sheet based solution is under development, this time in combination with PP-LGF, for lightweighting of door carriers. Furthermore, the collaboration with Takata, one of the world’s leading suppliers of airbags, has led to the development of a next-generation airbag housing made of PP-LGF and composite sheet.

Expanding Fibremod™ capacity in Monza to meet heightened demand

As one of Borealis’ most flexible specialty plants, the Monza production facility was first equipped with a Fibremod PP-LGF production line in 2013. Borealis is now expanding its total Fibremod LGF capacity to ten kilotonnes per year to follow the increased market demand for performance materials that enable weight reduction, cost-competitiveness and enhanced sustainability. The customized Fibremod PP-LGF product portfolio brings superior mechanical performance, high purity and excellent surface aspects for a wide range of applications. With the new capacity in Monza, Borealis will be able to provide further weight saving solutions with an extended product portfolio offer.

Launched in 2013, the Fibremod family of engineered short (SGF) and long (LGF) compounds is a cornerstone innovation. Fibremod PP-LGF is produced using a proprietary pultrusion technology to achieve high quality materials with excellent glass fibre impregnation, ultra-broad molecular weight distribution and increased fibre length in both pellets and final parts. The Fibremod PP-LGF also contributes to a more environment friendly production solution thanks to reduced processing temperatures, which require less energy when compared to alternatives such as engineering plastics and metal.

“While our key focus is as always on Value Creation through Innovation, our key driver in delivering lightweight solutions to our automotive customers is Fibremod,” explains Nick Kolesch, Head of Automotive Marketing at Borealis. “By launching new products like this package of PP composite application solutions and also ramping up our Fibremod capacity in Monza, we reaffirm our commitment to delivering material innovations and expanding the mutually beneficial partnerships with our customers.”

H3453 Corrosion Protection Tape Now Available

corrosion-protection-tape

If two different metals come together, as well as being exposed to moisture, galvanic corrosion can occur. Things such as trailers can be made from different materials, and when this reaction happens, the lifespan can be dramatically reduced. Galvanic corrosion occurs when two metals are brought together in an electrolyte, causing one ( anode ) to corrode faster than normal, and the other ( cathode ) to be inhibited.

Heskins have created H3453 corrosion protection tape to eradicate this reaction, prolonging the service life and reduce costs. Its simple application only increases its appeal, a self-adhesive backing allows it to be applied to one metal, and the other metal can be applied without risk of galvanic corrosion.

H3453 corrosion protection tape is available in large rolls which can be cut down to sheets or die cuts, and custom options are available dependent on order quantity to meet your requirements.

Panalpina and JDA help customers increase asset velocity

 

Three years ago, Panalpina announced its intention to deploy a single warehouse management system (WMS) across all of its logistics facilities throughout the world. The roll-out of the RedPrairie – now JDA – WMS is progressing ahead of schedule thanks to Panalpina’s experts in all regions and a specially developed and unique fast deployment model. To date, JDA WMS has been rolled out at more than 30 Panalpina sites globally – enabling Panalpina to optimize service levels and inventory for customers.

The WMS roll-out builds upon Panalpina’s logistics strategy to become the first 3PL (third-party logistics provider) to improve inventory management by helping customers increase asset velocity – moving products more quickly and reducing warehoused stock.

JDA WMS provides for various scan-and-validate check points throughout the warehousing process, allowing Panalpina to offer its customers a highly customizable solution. Panalpina also uses the system to track and compare the performance of its four-wall operations globally and then works towards benchmarks, for example in terms of very high inventory accuracy. JDA WMS has so far been deployed in 33 sites worldwide.

“The fast roll-out of the JDA warehouse management system worldwide is another way that Panalpina demonstrates its strategic commitment to growing in the logistics arena,” says Mike Wilson, global head of Logistics at Panalpina. “We have developed an unmatched level of in-house expertise, which we will use for the benefit of our customers to further accelerate the roll-out at our remaining logistics facilities.”

Panalpina developed its own rapid deployment model for JDA WMS in order to offer customers a standardized approach and consistent implementation process across the globe. This unique model is particularly useful to international customers whose products have short life cycles, as the deployment of the system takes place quickly and cost effectively.

Data from JDA WMS is used for advanced inventory forecasting

JDA WMS also includes a feature-rich reporting and analytics module, which can be integrated into Panalpina’s data analytics services for more accurate customer inventory and demand forecasting. Panalpina uses customer data extracted from JDA WMS to map inventories across product life cycles. Using sophisticated proprietary algorithms, Panalpina then calculates at what stage the inventory changes in order to better estimate minimum and maximum inventory holding, where to position inventory and what services to offer. Customers benefit by having a partner that can keep their products moving and minimize working capital requirements in their supply chains. Panalpina calls this approach Demand-Driven Inventory Dispositioning (D2ID).

While JDA WMS can be deployed for all industries, Panalpina has so far implemented the program mainly for its fashion and technology customers, which rely on a fast time to market. These customers benefit from the high levels of configuration available in JDA, and from specific features including multi-channel dispositioning, rapid returns processing and cross-docking.

Panalpina most recently deployed JDA WMS for a new high-end fashion customer in Italy. Panalpina’s Mendrisio fashion hub in southern Switzerland uses JDA WMS to provide the customer with inventory management and distribution services around the world. The fashion house’s merchandise is produced in northern Italy and then imported to Mendrisio, where Panalpina’s bonded warehouse can facilitate distribution within Switzerland or re-export it to Europe and other key markets.

Panalpina also offers a full returns logistics program at Mendrisio, accepting returned goods back into the facility and determining their quality, in order to return them quickly to stock in boutiques or outlet stores and maximize sales.

“JDA and our unique rapid deployment model have allowed us to offer our customers agility, speed and the flexibility to meet their needs across regions and industries. We efficiently track and manage their inventories and move their products as needed,” says Mario Leuverink, Global Head of Logistics Systems at Panalpina.

Heskins Thick Safety Grip Now Available

safety-grip-comparison-278x300

Heskins are proud to announce that H3404 2mm safety grip is now available for order. Thick Safety Grip™ now allows business to kit out their factories to ensure effective slip prevention, that also provide slight cushioning and reduce leg fatigue on a production line. It can also be applied into recesses that are considered trip hazards.

Heskins made the decision to produce thick Safety Grip™ after the demand became great. The reason Heskins had to ensure the demand was there, was simply due to the commitment that would have to be made to produce it. Many of our production and post production machines were modified to produce thick Safety Grip™ to the same quality standards as all the other Heskins products.

Investment was also made into a new range of high-volume crush cut blade holders. The reason this was necessary was due to the thickness. Heskins anti slip tapes are generally no thicker than 1.4mm. While the difference of .6mm doesn’t seem great, the adhesive applied to the base increases this thickness further, making it more difficult to cut.

Now the modifications are in place, Heskins have added a versatile new anti slip product into the range, and like all others, can be slit in rolls ranging from 20mm up to 1170mm, all 18.3m in length.

Heskins H3404 thick Safety Grip™ is available at a very competitive price, and if you would like to place an order, or enquire further, you can contact Heskins by phone or email.

Floor Demarcation and Colour Referencing in the Workplace

Floor Demarcation and Colour Referencing in the Workplace

When it comes to 5S and floor demarcation in the workplace, there are many guidelines, of which many provide very little insight.

A quote often used is ““In lean manufacturing, the general rule of thumb is that anyone should be able to walk into a workplace and identify the flow of work being done within 60 seconds.”

Keeping this quote in mind, for someone venturing into this for the first time, finding the right information before implementation is a tough task. Many options are available for floor marking and signage products to allow you to begin optimisation of floor demarcation, which in the first instance will be a tough task without the correct information to hand.

Depending on the function of your workplace will naturally determine how you proceed, do you want to optimise what is currently working? Or do you want to start from scratch to improve the whole process? We believe that Heskins can help you provide a strong starting point by defining the regulated and approved colours to identify and optimise key workflow areas in your business.

Heskins products are always manufactured in regulation colours, from anti slip tape, to floor marking systems, Heskins products can be used to create a full, optimised workflow demarcation system. heskins-ltd-colour-guidelines

Demarcation Area Black

Demarcation Area Black

Workplace 5s Walkway

Workplace 5s Walkway

5S colours are as follows:

Yellow – Highlights an area that is to be treated with caution. Mainly used for aisleways and walkways, more often than not because these areas could cross with other working processes, such as forklift traffic or other foot traffic.

Red – Highlights danger or can relate to fire. Red alerts people or vehicles that they need to stop before proceeding, or to notify people where fire fighting equipment is available, if it of course can.

Blue – Marks out information, or can be used to hold equipment or machinery that is out of order.

Green – Notifies an area of safety, whether that be a first aid point or notice, or a walkway that is out of the way of potential dangers.

Orange – Used to mark out zones where vehicles are stored or for areas where vehicles operate. Combining yellow and red with this creates a traffic system that is safe and organised.

Black/Yellow – Notifies of potential hazards and to proceed with caution. Areas that store potentially harmful chemicals or areas that can only be entered with additional safety measures.

Red/White – Notification to keep an area clear at all times. Emergency access or electrical points are two such areas that benefit from these markings.

White – Indication of an area where production or work processes are ongoing.

Black – Completed jobs are put in these areas, indicating the job is complete.

For a full colour reference guide for Heskins products and general 5S colour references, you can download the colour reference guide heskins-ltd-colour-guidelines. The Heskins colour guide refers to regulations for all of Europe.

Heskins offer other colours, as well as custom production, so dependent on order quantities, you can get the perfect anti slip or floor marking solution for your workplace. Get in touch
