Water Management in Process Plants David A. Puckett University of Oklahoma Department of Chemical, Biological, and Materials Engineering Executive Summary In the interests of improving water use optimization model accuracy, physical models of several common processes commonly used in refineries for wastewater regeneration were developed. Specifically, the water regeneration processes modeled were: API separation Activated carbon adsorption Reverse osmosis Chevron wastewater treatment Once physical models for each of these processes were developed, the physical models were used to generate

Unformatted text preview: performance data for iterations of each of the processes as the process design variables were altered. Non-linear regression when then used to develop relations between the design variables and the performance of the water regeneration process. Specifically, relations for the following performance aspects were developed. Process outlet concentration Process equipment cost Process operating cost For each of the processes modeled, the results were as follows: API separation o o o Activated carbon adsorption o o o Reverse osmosis o o o o o Chevron wastewater treatment o o o o...
