Key term 11

  1. Uses a reactor to make one large molecule out of two small molecules.
  2.   Used a reactor filled with catalyst to cause a chemical reaction that produces the desired products.
    Alkylation unit
  3.  Uses a fixed-bed catalyst to separate smaller hydrocarbons from large ones.
  4.   A series of stills arranges so the vapor and liquid products from each tray flow counter currently to each other.
    Distillation tower
  5.  Device in which the fixed medium remains in place as raw materials pass over it.
    Fixed-bed reactor
  6.  A process that uses a reactor to split large gas oil molecules into smaller, more useful ones.
    Fluid catalytic cracking
  7. A process that uses a reactor to scrape the bottom of the barrel and squeeze light products out of the residue.
    Fluid coking
  8.  Suspends solids within  the reactor by counter current flow of gas, particle segregation occurs over time as heavier components fall to the bottom and lighter ones move to the top.
    Fluidized-bed reactor
  9. Uses a multistage reactor system to boost yields of gasoline from crude oil.
  10.  Sweetens products by removing sulfur.
    Hydrodesulfurization unit
  11.  A device used to convert raw materials into useful products through chemicals reactions. It combines raw materials, heat, pressure, and catalysts in the right proportions to initiate reactions and form products.
  12.  A heat exchanger used to maintain the heat balance on a distillation tower.
  13.  Reactor filled with a catalyst designed to break large molecules into smaller ones through chemical reactions that remove hydrogen atoms.
  14. Used to recycle or regenerate contaminated catalyst.
