This Second Edition of the Handbook of Petroleum Processing follows in the footsteps and traditions of the First Edition. We have greatly updated and expanded the information and scope in this edition. We have included many new processes and unconventional feedstocks that are encountered in today’s facilities. The book has been reorganized to better facilitate its use as a reference. This Handbook provides a basic knowledge of petroleum refining and processing as a foundation.
We authors and editors grew up using many of these methods; however, we recognize that computer process simulation and applications play the major roles in designing and operating plants today. Many of the methods provided here are behind the simulation software or can be converted easily to computer applications. These methods can quickly provide rough checks on computer results, or they can be used if you do not have a computer or simulation package readily available. In different chapters, you will find the use of different units of measure. The units reflect those familiar to the chapter authors.
This means that the information in a chapter generally includes the needed reference materials. The self-contained approach only takes us so far. Lest we have to repeat large portions of other chapters or resources, individual chapters will still contain references to other chapters or appendices in this Handbook and to other resources. We have tried to make this work as comprehensive as possible, but it is not feasible to conceive of or include everything you might want to know.
