Uses of reforming proesses over other refinery processes?
Reforming is the process used to increase the total volume of gasoline that can be produced from a barrel of crude oil. Refining is the process of turning the crude oil into components for other uses.
What is the difference between refineries and petrochemical plants?
A refinery processes crude oil into different components such as kerosene, gasoline, diesel, LPG (light petroleum gases), etc. A petrochemical plant is a chemical plant that will use a petroleum based feedstock, such as LPG or other products from a petroleum refinery to produce a chemical product, such as plastics for example. ...

Why is chemistry useful?
Chemistry is useful in understanding matter. Many industrial processes utilize chemistry knowledge, and these include textile (bleaching and dyeing of fabrics), mining (metal extraction), pharmaceutical, food, oil refinery, tannery and many other industries. ...
Asked in Chemical Engineering
Why there is a flame of fire always on the top of refineries?
The refinery is burning "offgas" or lighter components such as methane, ethane, propane, and butane that are trapped in the crude oil as it enters the refinery. Many refineries today use these components as fuel for heaters and other processes and/or sell these gaseous products in the form of LPG. This requires a large centrifugal compressor which is a very high capitol cost, which is why some refineries still burn the gas in flares. ...

Asked in Mechanical Engineering
What are the differene between stirling cycle and carnot cycle?
In Carnot & Stirling cycle there were 2 isothermal processes. but in Stirling engine other 2 processes are constant volume processes whereas in Carnot other 2 processes are isentropic processes. Stirling engine has low maintenance and easy to built because of there construction. Both cycle's efficiencies near to same. but operating according to there applications. ...

Asked in Earth Sciences
What is a true statement about how the Earth's surface is changing?
The Earth's surface is always changing. It changes through slow processes and rapid processes. Some slow processes are weathering and erosion. Other changes are rapid processes, such as volcanic eruption, landslides and avalanches, and earthquakes. ...
