Conference: Galveston 2020

In comparison to the process side of the Sulfur Recovery Unit (SRU), the utility side of the SRU is frequently neglected in both the fine details in the conceptual design and in the normal day-to-day operation. However, the utility side frequently provides harsh reminders of the importance of keen attention in order to ensure reliable, safe and high on-line operation of the SRU.

The purpose of this paper is to identify the key design and operating considerations for the utility side of an SRU with the primary intention of raising the awareness of its importance.
