Safe Startup and Shutdown Practices for Steam Reformers Hydrogen Pressure Swing Adsorber (PSA) Mechanical Integrity Requirements


Abstract


This publication is an industry-wide guideline for in-service mechanical integrity of PSA units and is intended to contribute to the operational safety and reliability of these units. This publication is not intended to address the details of design and installation of PSA vessels and piping. This publication applies to PSA units with reformer syngas, refinery off-gas, and other hydrogen containing offgases.

 

This publication is focused on the parts of the PSA that are subjected to pressure cycles, although some consideration is given to the noncyclic portions of the PSA system.
