Xylene Isomerization Process by UOP LLC

Application: The UOP Isomar process isomerizes C8 aromatics to mixed xylenes, to maximize the recovery of paraxylene in a UOP aromatics complex. Depending on the type of catalyst used, ethylbenzene (EB) is also converted into xylenes or benzene. The Isomar … Continue reading

Xylene Isomerization Process by GTC Technology

GT-IsomPX is GTC’s xylene isomerization technology available in two versions: ethylbenzene (EB) isomerization and EB dealkylation. Both versions gain high ethylbenzene conversion rates while producing equilibrium mixed xylenes—meta-xylene (MX), ortho-xylene (OX) and paraxylene (PX). For an EB dealkylation type of … Continue reading

Xylene Isomerization Process by ExxonMobil

To selectively isomerize a paraxylene-depleted C8 aromatics mixture to greater than equilibrium paraxylene (PX) concentration using ExxonMobil Chemical’s XyMax and Advanced MHAI processes. Simultaneously, ethylbenzene (EB) and non-aromatics in the feed are converted to benzene and light paraffins, respectively. Conversion … Continue reading

m-Xylene Process by UOP LLC

The MX Sorbex process recovers meta-xylene (m-xylene) from mixed xylenes. UOP’s innovative Sorbex technology uses adsorptive separation for highly efficient and selective recovery, at high purity, of molecular species that cannot be separated by conventional fractionation. The process simulates a … Continue reading
