About Reactor Resources
At Reactor Resources, our desire is to bring true innovations to the businesses that we serve. We are not satisfied with being a "me-too" type of company. The development of our patented SmartSkid Injection System, Online H2S Analyzer System, and Hydrogen Purity Analyzer illustrates the type of "outside the box" thinking that we bring to the industry. With these systems, we can provide the safest and most accurate sulfiding services available.
Our latest patented innovation is the use of MDEA to replace ammonia during hydrocracker startups. Once introduced to the reactor, MDEA decomposes to form ammonia that will then moderate the activity of highly acidic hydrocracking catalysts. With a Health Hazard Rating of 1 (the lowest rating), MDEA is much safer to use and easier to handle than ammonia (Health Hazard Rating of 3) or tri-butyl amine (TBA) (Health Hazard Rating of 3).
Since forming Reactor Resources (RxR) in 2011, our goal has been to provide the absolute best catalyst sulfiding services and sulfur products to the refining and petrochemical industries. In our first year, we partnered with ChevronPhillips Chemical Company to supply Dimethyl Sulfide (DMS) to ethylene producers for passivating steam cracker furnace tubes. In 2012, RxR designed and built our first patented SmartSkid™ Injection System, bringing the sulfiding process into the 21st century. In addition, we introduced the concept of utilizing an Online H2S Analyzer in place of pulling draeger tubes to measure the H2S gas concentration during catalyst sulfiding. That year we also began supplying Dimethyl Disulfide (DMDS) and completed our first in-situ sulfiding projects. We added an Inline Hydrogen Analyzer to our portfolio of gas analyzers in 2014. Since the beginning, our personnel and systems have been used to help clients successfully sulfide over 260 hydrotreating and hydrocracking units with DMDS and/or TBPS. In 2017, Reactor Resources began offering our chemicals and service package to customers in Europe and the Middle East from our office/shop in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. And in 2018, we acquired Actisulf SAS of Tarbes, France, a leader is specialized catalyst activation services. This acquisition enables us to provide even more first-class service to clients in Europe and the Middle East.
At RxR, our people are our strength. Our Management Team has more than 300 man-years of experience in field of hydroprocessing catalysis. And our Operators are the most experienced and best trained Technicians in the industry for carrying out catalyst sulfiding and gas analysis.
