Engineer Retrofit The Advantages of Consulting an Engineer for Industrial Retrofits - Industrial facilities require state-of-the-art equipment in order to maintain optimal efficiency and survive in a competitive industrial landscape. However, over time as technology advances, or simply due to age and disrepair, equipment begins to become obsolete. When that happens, a company may opt to replace the equipment completely or they may decide to perform a retrofit. If a retrofit is done it is extremely beneficial to have an engineer on hand to oversee the project. Engineers Have In-Depth Knowledge About Industrial Machinery for Retrofits Retrofits are often a much less costly solution than full-scale upgrades and replacements; however, in order […]
Accelerated Project Sequence What Is Polaris’ Accelerated Project Sequence? - Polaris uses a system of engineering that is referred to as the Accelerated Project Sequence. This approach offers a wide range of important benefits and allows Polaris to deliver better quality and value to our clients. Let’s take a look at what the Accelerated Project Sequence is and why it is so beneficial. What Is the Accelerated Project Sequence? To understand what the Accelerated Project Sequence it is helpful to first understand what the Traditional Project Sequence is for engineering. With the Traditional Project Sequence every step of the project is completed one at a time in a rigid order […]
Fabrication Quality Factors That Affect Fabrication Quality - Industrial plants and facilities need high quality, dependable fabricated equipment that meets their specs and gets the job done efficiently. There are numerous factors that affect fabrication quality including the initial design, the composition of materials used, the weld and assembly, and the expertise and capabilities of the fabrication company. Let’s take a closer look at each of these components and how they affect fabrication quality. The Design Any piece of equipment or product is only going to be as good as its design. If there are design flaws that make the product less efficient, less sturdy, or less functional, […]

PROJECTS

  • Vac Unit Additions

    Problem With crude feed slates becoming heavier over time, the client’s capabilities of recovering diesel and atmospheric gas oil became limited with the existing Atmospheric Crude Distillation Towers. As a result they were not able to recover a small portion of diesel and large portion of Atmospheric Gas Oil from the Atmospheric Tower Bottoms (ATB). Thus, these products were downgraded to No. 6 Oil. Solution Polaris proposed the design of a Vacuum Distillation Tower that would not only recover the Diesel Cut and Atmospheric Gas Oil, but also increase Gas Oil yields further to meet Low Sulfur Vacuum Gas Oil […]

  • ULSD Compliance Project

    Problem To comply with the EPA mandated low sulfur standard for highway diesel, refiners are now required to meet a 15 ppmw sulfur specification on diesel sold into this market. To produce ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD), high severity diesel hydrotreating technologies are required. These processes require a significant supply of hydrogen. In order to enter into the ULSD market, the client would need not only a process unit capable of producing ULSD specifications, but also an economical hydrogen source to supply the unit. Solution Polaris proposed a plant expansion design that would give the refiner ULSD production capability and […]

  • Refinery Refurbishment

    Problem A small Gulf Coast refinery had been dormant for over 4 years. The infrastructure, as well as the main processing units, had fallen into disrepair. The new ownership desired to run a different feedstock as well as different product slate than ever had been produced from the refinery. Solution Polaris Engineering provided designs for refurbishing the refinery as well as modifying the processing equipment to produce the new product slate. Polaris Construction provided fabrication, field services, and general contracting to perform the complete refurbishment of the plant. In seven months, the plant went from being dormant to producing on-spec […]

  • Refinery Emergency Design

    Problem A large Midwest refinery suffered a severe fire in the single crude unit that would render the crude unit out of service for nine months. The refinery called in Polaris Engineering to figure out how to run the plant without the crude unit. Solution Polaris Engineering evaluated the plant and provided a design to utilize existing equipment within the plant in completely new services to process crude. The design was completed in less than one week and passed through HAZOP and Corporate review without any modifications. The revamp cost $10MM and allowed the plant to operate at the designed […]
