  • Patent number: 10486132
    Abstract: Copper adsorbents which are resistant to the reduction by the components of the synthesis gas at normal operation conditions. The adsorbents are produced by admixing small amounts of an inorganic halide, such as NaCl, to the basic copper carbonate precursor followed by calcination at a temperature sufficient to decompose the carbonate. The introduction of the halide can be also achieved during the forming stage of adsorbent preparation. These reduction resistant copper oxides can be in the form of composites with alumina and are especially useful for purification of synthesis gas and the removal of mercury, arsine, phosphine, as well as hydrogen sulfide.

  • Patent number: 10450245
    Abstract: This present disclosure relates to processes for removing contaminants from hydrocarbon streams, e.g. removing chlorides, CO2, COS, H2S, AsH3, methanol, mercaptans and other S- or O-containing organic compounds from olefins, paraffins, aromatics, naphthenes and other hydrocarbon streams. The process involves contacting the stream with an adsorbent which comprises a zeolite, an alumina component and a metal component e.g. sodium, in an amount at least 30% of the zeolite's ion exchange capacity.

  • Publication number: 20180245006
    Abstract: Copper sorbents which are resistant to the reduction by hydrogen are used as a guard bed for an acetylene conversion zone. The adsorbents include cuprous oxide, cupric oxide, copper metal, and a halide and are pre-reduced prior to be loaded into the guard bed. The sorbents can remove contaminants that would poison selective hydrogenation catalysts used for a selectively hydrogenating acetylenic compounds in an olefin stream. The sorbents may also selectively hydrogenate the acetylenic compounds.

  • Patent number: 9962682
    Abstract: A process for the providing a regenerant gas stream for a regenerable adsorbent used to remove water and hydrogen sulfide from a reactor effluent in a catalytic dehydrogenation process is described. The reactor effluent is compressed in a compressor to provide a compressed effluent. The compressed effluent may be treated to remove chlorides, and then passed to a dryer zone having a regenerable adsorbent. A regenerant gas stream is used to desorb the water and hydrogen sulfide and the spent regenerant stream may be passed to a cleaning zone having a sorbent configured to remove hydrogen sulfide from the spent regenerant stream. The cleaned regenerant gas stream may be recycled to the dryer zone to desorb and/or regenerate the regenerable adsorbent.

  • Patent number: 9718750
    Abstract: A process is presented for the removal of acetaldehyde from mixture of oxygenates. Acetaldehyde is selectively removed in the presence of other oxygenates like ketones, alcohols and nitriles using an amorphous sodium doped alumina derived from thermally decomposed Dawsonite. The process successfully removes acetaldehyde which can adversely impact catalyst operation.

  • Patent number: 9718747
    Abstract: A process for removal of trace chloride contaminants from a reactor effluent in a catalytic dehydrogenation process is described. The reactor effluent is compressed in a compressor to provide a compressed effluent. The compressed effluent is introduced from the compressor into a chloride treater. In the chloride treater, trace chloride contaminants in the compressed effluent are adsorbed to provide a treated effluent. The treated effluent is cooled in a cooler.
