Application: Propane Dehydrogenation

Related Industry: Petrochemical Refining

Hydrocarbon feed is mixed with hydrogen-rich recycle gas and is fed into an electric heater to be heated to over 540°C (1000°F) before entering the reactors to be converted at high mono-olefin selectivity. Several inter-stage heaters are used to maintain the reaction by supplying continuous heat to counter the endothermic reaction.
