VENTECH's Diesel Production Units (DPU) are complete, modularized units ready for immediate installation, and are designed to be fully erected and operational within two weeks from arrival at a prepared project site. All equipment is fully warranted for one full year after commissioning or 18 months after delivery. Ventech can have your DPU designed, manufactured and ready for export shipment from our Pasadena, Texas fabrication facility in as little as five to six months from the funding of an executed contract.


NAPHTHA - Naphtha's boiling end point is typically between 150C (302F) to 193C (380F). This rough-cut hydrocarbon will generally be blended back with the residuum and re-injected into the crude pipeline. DIESEL (DISTILLATE) - This product's typical boiling range is from about 185C (365F) to about 351C (665F), and can be used as a heating oil and fuel. The unit will produce arctic, winter and summer grades of diesel, depending upon the quality of the crude. RESIDUUM - The remaining crude, which is heavier than diesel, typically begins to boil at about 287C (550F). This product is generally blended back with the naphtha and re-injected into the crude pipeline.

Based on a typical .865 gravity (32 API) crude oil, the Ventech DPU will process the rated capacity and produce by volume approximately 25% Naphtha, 30% Distillate, and 45% Residuum. Actual processing capacities, product percentages and boiling points will vary depending on the special characteristics of your crude. Upon receipt of your crude composition, Ventech will furnish the yields that can be produced and, at your request, make modifications to your DPU to meet your special product and design requirements. Ventech can also furnish any optional equipment needed for further processing of your product streams such as Distillate Hydrotreaters, Catalytic Reformers, Vacuum Units and Naphtha Stabilizers.

Steam Design - For applications where the owner prefers to utilize steam for the DPU operations. An optional design can be utilized to furnish a process system that requires steam for stripping or heating. Winterized Design - For applications in severe winter conditions. A special design is available for operating in environments colder than -20F (-29C). This design utilizes special metallurgy, arctic grade electrical, recirculating air coolers, electric heat tracing and flushing systems. The process skid is enclosed, insulated, heated and ventilated. The sides are removable for summer operation and serve as security packaging during shipment to the site. Product Trim Cooling - Air-cooling is utilized to cool products prior to flowing to storage. If additional cooling is required during the hottest part of the summer, water-cooled trim heat exchangers can be added after the air coolers to operate during the peak temperature periods. Distillate Firing Applicable where fuel gas is not available. The crude heater will be modified to burn distillate from the DPU. High Sulfur Metallurgy The typical unit is designed to process crudes with sulfur less than 1% by weight. If higher sulfur crudes are to be used, a high sulfur design is used to increase the alloy content in the heater, piping, and some of the equipment. High Salt Crude Oils - An electrostatic desalter and special metallurgies can be incorporated in the process design if the crude oil contains high quantities of salt.
