GRIZOX-50 catalytic thermal cracking unit for deparaffination and improvement in quality and ecological parameters of carbon-containing feedstock up to marketable products.

GRIZOX-50 Mini Oil Refinery – is a unit based on technology that combines both primary and secondary processes of petrochemical industry. It is applicable to deparaffination and improvement in quality and ecological parameters of carbon-containing feedstock up to marketable products. Types of feedstock include: stable gas condensate, fuel oil (light and dark), mixture of straight-run benzene and mazut, light oil. The capacity of equipment is 50 tons of feedstock per day.

GRIZOX-50 catalytic thermal cracking unit is delivered with fully automated systems, equipped with the best Russian and foreign component parts and requires minimum number of personnel for its operation. GRIZOX-50 provides necessary energy, both thermal and electric (available as an additional option). It has an air cooling unit and integrated refrigerating unit with air condenser for water and low-temperature fractions.

The advantages of the GRIZOX-50 technology over the conventional:

  1. Provides deeper processing than conventional atmospheric distillation (for 10-20% depending on feedstock composition).
  2. Obtained benzene is not a straight-run low-octane benzene, but a high-octane gasoline, applicable to motor fuel blending.
  3. Obtained diesel contains less resins and has a lower pour point. Its flash point is 58-62º C, filtration point is -30-35º C. It is a winterized fuel (arctic quality) that is essential for northern regions.
  4. The obtained quantity of mazut is significantly less. It has lower viscosity and pour point and is much closer to marine fuel than traditional mazut.
  5. The amount of mazut can be decreased up to 20-25% if the unit for deep mazut processing is applied.
  6. The obtained quantity of dry gas is enough to combust and produce electric energy, necessary for equipment's operation.
  7. The option of tar or bitumen production is available.

Specialists of the Zhelezno group of companies perform chief-assembly, commissioning and maintenance (under additional agreement) of equipment during the whole period of its operation.

GRIZOX-50 Mini Oil Refinery can be used as an independent unit for processing of stable gas condensate, mixture of straight-run benzene and mazut, light oil into marketable fractions. Or it can be used as an auxiliary equipment to the Pirotex pyrolysis plant for processing of liquid fuel (synthetic oil) into marketable fractions.
