Air Products is looking to support fast growing oil recycling businesses optimise their hydrotreatment process. The support will be undertaken from their head office in Allentown, Pennsylvania where Air Products is building a hydrogen lab.
A key feature of the new lab is a hydrotreatment unit capable of performing high pressure and high temperature hydrogenation reactions. Air Products will use the new lab – scheduled to be operational in third quarter 2015 – to help oil recyclers optimise their hydrotreatment processes.
“If hydrotreatment is not carried out under optimal conditions, an inferior quality of base oil is produced that has to be either reprocessed or sold at a discounted price,” said Dr. Vipul Dholakia, Senior Applications Engineer at Air Products.
Effective October 1, 2015, or as contracts permit, Air Products have increased product pricing and monthly service charges for merchant customers in North America – involving a range of gases.
