|Title: ||QUALITY CONTROL AND PERFO ANCE EV ALUATION OF REFINERY PR DUCTS|
|Authors: ||MOHAMMED, USMAN KORO|
|Issue Date: ||Oct-1998|
The quality of AGO and DPK ohtained from Kaduna refmery and petrochemical
company was analysed using data obtain Qver a period of two years.
The analysis was found to fall within the standard specifications of American
society of tests and measurements (ASTM) standards. The analysis was based on
the determination of aniline point and using this to ohtain Diesel index from the
expression giving by
D.I = 141.5/density - 131.5/100 x aniline point.
The diesel index obtain for AGO was found to be 45.79 and the smoke point of
DPK was found to be 21.33.
The performance evaluation is based on the aniline point values of AGO and
smoke point ofDPK and were found to be satisfactory.
In this regard, an heat exchanger was design to control the temperature of the
product i.e DPK to required ambient temperature.|
