Sulfur Recovery Engineering (SRE) clients often ask about Key Performance Indicators for their Sulfur Recovery Units.

It is difficult to identify KPIs for the SRU without compositional analysis and feed stream data.  If you think about it, the data that you see from the DCS – flows, temperatures and air demand analyzer (ADA) info – are all directly related to what is actually coming into the SRU.

If the temperature rise across a converter is observed to be lessening, this indicates that deactivation is occurring.  This phenomena may be accompanied by an increase in the temperature rise in the downstream Converter since it now has to do ‘more work’.

SRE’s conventional on-site SRU testing work almost always involves sour work.

Process simulation is a model-based representation of a process plant such as a Sulfur Recovery Unit, in software.
