Founded in 2006, CPFD Software has developed the only engineering simulation technology with the ability to serve as a true Virtual Reactor™ for design optimization of industrial fluidization units used in: oil refining; coal and bio-mass power generation and gasification; petrochemical reactors such as polyolefins/plastics, acrylonitrile, titanium dioxide, polysilicon for photovoltaics; and numerous clean-tech applications, such as chemical-looping and flue gas scrubbing. CPFD’s Barracuda Virtual Reactor® software simulates complex 3D fluid-particle flows, including thermal effects and heterogeneous chemical reactions in any environment.

CPFD Software’s customers are using Barracuda Virtual Reactor simulation in engineering design, process optimization, troubleshooting and maintenance of fluidized reactors to increase production efficiency, to fix off-design performance problems, to reduce catalyst and product losses, to minimize operational risk in plant upgrades, to reduce emissions and for gas cleanup. CPFD Software provides its Barracuda Virtual Reactor simulation solutions worldwide through licensing, applications support, and engineering simulation services.

For over 25 years, Crystaphase has provided reactor solutions to hundreds of refining, petrochemical, and chemical plants worldwide. Like no other company, Crystaphase understands the quantifiable variables that impede performance and has developed a systematic and replicable approach for removing those obstacles through particle filtration and poison control. The result: longer reactor cycles, higher catalyst load capacity, greater throughput, lower risk, and higher profits. The choice: crystal clear.

The Sabin Metal group of companies is proud to have celebrated their 70th Anniversary in 2015. Based in the United States and with sales/service offices around the world, Sabin is the largest privately owned precious metals refining organization in North America. Sabin provides customers with logistical support, precious metal financial services, pre-reclaim kilning and some of the most sophisticated facilities in the world for safely and responsibly processing, sampling and refining precious metal-bearing catalysts.

ZymeFlow® Decon Technology is the global leader for process unit decontamination. Top refineries and petrochemical facilities trust in ZymeFlow Decon for the planning, chemistry, and service experience to perform the safest and fastest entry into process equipment during a turnaround or emergency outage. The patented ZymeFlow process simultaneously eliminates benzene, LEL’s, pyrophoric iron sulphides, and hydrogen sulphide dramatically reducing the time spent to prepare vessels for entry and hot work. Furthermore, the process is safe for people, equipment, and wastewater plants.

ZymeFlow Decon boasts a dynamic range of chemistries with detailed planning and technical support. With 25 years of experience in refining and petrochemical applications, the ZymeFlow brand of decontamination chemistries and services has become the global leader for fast and safe vessel entry.

Dorf Ketal Chemicals is a global leader in the research, development, commercialization, marketing and application of specialty engineered chemistries for the refining and petrochemical industries. Founded in 1992, Dorf Ketal has demonstrated product and service excellence in the largest refineries and petrochemical plants in the world.

The research development teams at Dorf Ketal deliver innovative process chemicals with applications in refining, petrochemical and polymer production, plus unique chemistries for fuel treatment.

Dorf Ketal innovation is a commitment to solve challenging customer problems with new chemistry and application technology. We invest in extensive research to identify new chemistries and we embrace failure in our laboratories to assure success in our customer’s plants. Product development includes sophisticated proprietary simulations that allow us to predict results across a range of feedstocks under operational stresses that exceed “real-world” conditions. The result is more intellectual property and a growing list of customers achieving measureable economic advantages for their stakeholders

We commit more than 20,000 man-hours annually to research and development and fully 10% of our annual revenues are reinvested in R&D.

The Dorf Ketal research and development team is based in in Taloja, India. However, R&D extends throughout our company, with scientists and engineers working together to solve our customers’most demanding problems. Examples of our game-changing products include:

  • TANSCIENT™offers safer, more reliable corrosion protection for refining of high TAN opportunity crudes. It delivers more effective passivation and ongoing protection with up to 80% less phosphorus than competitor HTCI products.
  • Tailored process chemical solutions to improve desalting performance, such as:
    Metals Removal Technologies  – New organic acid and non-acid solutions for sweet and sour crudes to remove metals and eliminate stable emulsions of water insoluble solids. Also prevents downstream issues in the overhead and catalyst systems.
    Emulsion Breakers for Opportunity Crudes – Multiple functionality that allows refiners to lower costs by increasing the amount of cost advantaged crudes processed.
    Amine Removal in Crude Units – New, non-acid chemistry sequesters amine and improves control of overhead salting and corrosion control.

Our portfolio of technologies is world class. Our success in bringing them to market is dominant in India, Brazil, and SE Asia, and we continue to grow in other regions. There are many reasons why it’s beneficial for you to have a dynamic new company in your supply chain to offset decades of supplier consolidation designed to reduce competitive intensity.
