Project Description

Vessel Loading

Sock Loading

With conventional sock loading techniques and experienced personnel, a uniform loaded bed can be achieved where the higher densities and startup ΔP of the superior method of dense loading is not practical. Good sock loading techniques can minimize problems that are normally associated with sock loading.

Dense Loading

Dense loading is by far the best loading method available in the industry, and with this particular method, the unit can handle the higher startup ΔP. The advantages of dense loading is well known and well documented.

  • HYDROPAC® technology is a HPA designed, owned and operated dense loading system that incorporates all of the required features for a uniform load with none of the disadvantages associated with many of its competitors.
  • UNIDENSE™ loading technology is offered for the loading of reformer tubes through a technology partner.
