I am working in VGOHDT. We are facing flaring issue intermittently in Fractionator overhead drum. We are using split range controller for maintaining pressure using fuel gas and excess pressure will release in LP flare.
But we found that the overhead gas composition consist about 51% hydrogen ,23% methane and 14% nitrogen respectively which are non condensable gases. We increased HP steam in stripper column and reduce the pressure in Cold LP separator for removing it but problem persist. Kindly give suggestion to reduce H2 and methane to reduce flaring in Fractionator?
We are operating fractionator pressure at 1kg/cm2 and top temperature at 106 deg c.Overhead Finfan outlet temperature at 45 deg.
