Hydrogenation Skid
Hydrogenation Skid
Equipment Description:
 The skid is located in an explosion proof room Class-I Div-2 and capable to handle
class C&D solvent. A special arrangement is made to handle hydrogen.
The equipment skid is equipped with:
 20L SS-316L High Pressure Reactor from Parr Inst. Company, maximum design
pressure is 1000psi.
 Air driven motor for agitation
 Cooling/Heating coil as well as welded jacket. If required jacket can be made
operational.
 Different instruments as Taco meter, Flow switch, pressure transmitter, control
valve, rupture disc, relief valve, pressure gauges, solenoid valve, and Hydrogen
Pressure regulator manifold.
 Two catalyst filters with particles retaining capacity up to 18 μm and 3μm
respectively are mounted on skids in series. One additional portable catalyst
filter unit with particle retaining capacity up to 0.2 μm is available and can be
installed in series with other two filters if needed.
 Whole unit is PLC controlled and can operate in semi-auto or manual mode as
required.
Note: At present all the instruments are capable to handle the maximum pressure up to
100psi but skid can be made operational for pressure as high as 1000psi by further
modification if required.

Hydrogen cylinders and pressure regulator station is located outside the building.
Installed orifice in the hydrogen supply line restricts the excess hydrogen flow in
case any major leaks.
The whole unit is PLC controlled can be operated in semi-auto or manual as
required. Safety interlocks prevents any uncontrolled process to happen.
In case of emergency unit can be bring into shutdown mode simply by hitting the
emergency button.
Any un expected release of material during the process will be captured into sand
trap on the roof top.
If required material can be filtered up-to a 0.2 micron level using separate filtration
unit.
Equipment is ideal for optimization as well as scale-up purpose.

sensors, pressure transmitter, safety relief valves and temperature control valve.
The Ozonolysis column is 6ft high and 3”dia. Packed column with Raschig ring.
Operation is carried out in counter current fashion ideal for gas-liquid reaction.
All the associated utilities equipments are placed in Room#216
Specification:
Metering pumps:
 Oil Pump: 2.2kg/hr
 Solvent pump: 12kg/hr

The skid is located in explosion proof room( Class-I Div-2 ) and capable to handle
class C&D solvent.
Unit is PLC controlled and mounted on skid itself.
Process safety interlocks prevents any uncontrolled process parameters and to the
extreme it will shutdown the whole process.
Ozone sensors( 0-1 ppm) are mounted on skid itself and close proximity to ozone
generator in Room 216.
In case of emergency unit can be put into safe mode by simply hitting the
emergency button located on skid itself.
Rupture disc prevent any personal injury or equipment damage in case of explosion
within the equipment and any release of material will be collected into sand trap
placed on the roof top.
Skid is ideal for scale-up process
