Hi Fellas,

 

Does anyone have an idea about a Refinery currently/ still operating without a desalter unit?

Much interested to know about their operation and how are they tackle the overhead corrosion issues?

 

Many Thanks in advance for each response!

 

Have a great day :)

The refineries must have a desalter in the inlet feed stream.

Historically that wasn't always the case as there were/are crudes that were salt free.

Hi,

 

In general, the crude oil receives by refining process plant is normally salt free despite of desalter unit included in refining installation or the crude oil has already been desalted somewhere else...
