Refinery Isomerization Unit

PSE provided engineering services ranging from a feasibility study through detailed design of a 1,900 bpd isomerization unit for Silver Eagle’s refinery at Woods Cross, Utah. To complete the project, PSE personnel began by examining an existing Silver Eagle isomerization unit, and made site-specific modifications to enhance.
