    The purpose of this stage is mixing the generated Isobutylene that comes from the Oleflex unit with the excess amount of methanol manufactured by QAFAC to produce MTBE. Two isobutylene spheres (V 3101, V 3102) are designed to store 2,400 m3 other than storing requirements. These spheres can receive isobutylene after shutdown in the downstream and they are continuously charge and receive Isobutylene in initial startup and normal shutdown. The feed passes through highly acidic ion exchange (V 2302), low temperature and relatively high pressure, these conditions are required to mix Isobutylene with methanol to produce MTBE. MX 2301 is the Mixer in this stage of the process that mixes isobutylene that comes from (V 3101, V 3102) with Methanol from Methanol drum (V 2303).…
