APPLICATION OF PINCH TECHNOLOGY AND ENERGY INTEGRATION TECHNIQUE IN VACUUM DISTILLATION UNIT OF KRPC
Publication Date : 01/02/2010
The application of pinch technology has resulted in significant improvements in the energy and capital efficiency of industrial facilities worldwide. Pinch technology has played a very significant role in identifying energy cost. The simulation was carried out to obtain CP and the heat duty of the streams. The CP, heat duty T supply and T target were used in carrying out the pinch analysis. The results of the pinch analysis showed that the cold and hot utility requirements of the unit were obtained. These requirements were subsequently compared with those of the traditional units. The pinch temperature of the process was found to be 370˚C while the hot requirements of traditional energy approach and pinch analyses were found to be 0.32MW and 0.24MW respectively. This showed that pinch technology and energy integration saves more energy and utilities cost than the traditional energy approach.
