As important equipment of condensate stabilization unit, condensate stabilization tower is mainly used to remove the light components of condensate by plate tower and reduce the vapor pressure of condensate so as to achieve the goal of condensate stabilization. During the operation process of the condensate stabilization tower, salt deposition appeared in the tower plate and tube bundle of the reboiler at the bottom of the tower. This reduced the plate flux and heat transfer effect of the reboiler in the stabilization tower, resulting in liquid flooding in the stabilization tower and difficulty in maintaining the bottom temperature of the tower. This paper analyzes the causes of salt deposition in the stabilization tower in detail, and finds out the corresponding treatment measures to solve the problem of salt blockage in the stabilization tower.
