Shop built, modular equipment solutions and tailored process design reduce capital cost and energy consumption. With unsurpassed experience and a proven track record, we're with you through the complete product lifecycle. Scope can incorporate detailed design packages, installation and commissioning support, training, service contracts and plant optimization studies.
Range of reactors, drums, separators and bolted in shell and tube heat exchangers. Working with leading process licensors including UOP, Axens, Conoco, Shell, Chevron, Haldor Topsoe and Lummus (McDermott).
Hydrocracking and Hydrotreating
The removal of sulphur, nitrogen and other contaminants from naphtha feedstocks at high temperatures and pressures.
Materials of construction include carbon, low alloy and stainless steel and nickel alloys.
Typical units designed and built by VRV:
Continuous Catalytic Reforming (CCR)
Octanizing and Platforming - conversion of petroleum naphtha with low octane ratings into high octane liquid products.
VRV provides the complete range of main equipment for the CCR platforming process in accordance with Axens and other major licensors.
When the Axens octanizing process is used to produce high-octane gasoline and hydrogen VRV supplies a complete portfolio of specialty heat transfer items including: octanizer reactor, regenerator (316L SS and Incoloy 825 available), catalyst hoppers, surge drum, reduction chamber, lift pots and washing drum.
Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC)
Upgrading of heavy distillates from crude distillation into lighter, higher value products.
Conversion of iso-butane and low molecular weight alkenes into high quality gasoline. Units include alkylation reactor coolers, alkylation strippers and feed condensers.

Specializing in heat exchangers up to 200 tonnes for applications that require high pressure operation even in severe service.
Routine fabrication in stainless steel (including super austenitic, duplex and super duplex), titanium, Inconel, Incoloy, Hastelloy, Zirconium, low alloy and low temperature steels, Monel and Cu-Ni alloys.
IMB's HELIXCHANGER® facilitates helical fluid flow on the shell-side providing performance advantages versus conventional baffled shell and tube units. References include large HELIFIN® and 'Texas Tower' heat exchangers.
Maximizing performance while minimizing space is the most critical aspect of every offshore installation. From large hairpin heat exchanger installations to sub-sea coolers, we offer the most comprehensive selection of custom designed tubular heat exchanger products and solutions. Furthermore, our technical consultancy, training and aftermarket service is second to none.
