Answer in Organic Chemistry for Sukeina #269876
Explain with the help of a suitable diagram the principle used in separating hydrocarbon in crude oil
In Partial oxidation (POX), the feedstock is heated to temperatures of around 1,400 degrees Celsius and oxygen is added to support sub-stoichiometric conversion. The resulting synthesis gas is then further conditioned. With the POX process, we can withdraw as much hydrogen from the heavy oil as possible. This makes the technology an interesting option for oil companies seeking to derive maximum value from their residues in future.
Partial oxidation of hydrocarbons is used to produce hydrogen:
