The objectives of the Sulphur Experts' (Western Research) course are to:
  • Review the science behind the modified Clause reaction;
  • Review the many technology applications currently in use for sulphur recovery and tail gas treatment;
  • Review the basics required for optimizing performance on a unit by unit basis from the reaction furnace to the tail gas incinerator; and
  • Equip participants to troubleshoot and address performance problems.

The course provides a forum for delegates to discuss design and operating problems with expert panel members and other delegates. The course also provides hands-on problem solving experience using sulphur plant simulation software. Delegates are encouraged to bring operating data to the problem solving session to find solutions to their specific issues.

Who Should Attend?

The seminar will be of value to anyone interested in obtaining information on the current status of Sulphur Recovery and Tail Gas Clean-Up technology and operating practice. The Seminars have helped all disciplines involved in sulphur plant design, and operation including managers, engineers, process foremen, plant engineers, plant supervisors, research engineers and scientists, project engineers, technical managers, pollution control engineers and scientists.



The morning and afternoon sessions consist of organized presentations covering the material included in the course textbook and technical papers. Time is provided for an effective questions and answer session on each topic. Delegates will also have the opportunity to use a sulphur plant simulator Sulsim®, during a problem-solving workshop to address their own challenges based on their own plant data, or can work independently on specific case studies.
