Course Overview

Polymer fouling is an undesired and important circumstance in process industry mainly because of the huge costs associated with reduction in process performance deposit removal and in the worst cases equipment damage and replacement. For this reason it is very profitable for chemical companies to understand and contrast causes and implications associated to this phenomenon.

Who should take this course

This course is recommended for professionals involved in the design operation and maintenance of equipment that can be affected by undesired polymer formation and fouling (e.g. processes treating hydrocarbons such as oil&gas facilities petrochemicals plants heat exchangers distillation columns and chemical reactors).

In particular:

Refinery Operators
Plant Operators
Maintenance Technicians Technology Specialists
Refinery Specialists
Design Engineers
Chemical Engineers
Process Engineers
Facilities Engineers
Plant Operations Engineers
Equipment Inspectors
Production Managers and Pipeline Superintendents.
