Brimstone Sulfur Recovery Training Courses
Currently Scheduled Brimstone Courses
Sulfur Recovery Fundamentals – March, 2019, San Francisco (Coming Soon)
Advanced Sulfur Recovery Course – October 21-24, 2019, Houston (Coming Soon)
Sulfur recovery is a challenging process with complex chemistry, difficult feed streams, and ever-tightening emissions limits. Claus units require their operators to deal with a wide array of process equipment and hardware including reaction furnaces, fired heaters, catalytic beds, condensers, exchangers and incinerators, all under severe service conditions that lead to challenging maintenance issues. While the rest of the facility deals with the comparatively predictable chemistry and behavior of hydrocarbon compounds, sulfur recovery units exist largely outside that world and have their own special chemistry, processing, and equipment needs. Often, the operating and maintenance experience acquired in other process areas often do not apply well (or at all) to sulfur processing units. This results in a constant need to maintain and reinforce training of the sulfur area operating and engineering staff.
Brimstone’s goal is to provide your staff with practical information that helps them in their day-to-day efforts to safely and efficiently meet their plant operating goals. We accomplish this by copying the style of our Sulfur Symposia and presenting the course material in a casual, highly interactive manner with lots of Q&A and discussion. The extensive, hands-on experience of our uniquely qualified instructional staff makes this approach especially effective. Our instructors average over 30 years experience in this field and several have served as SME’s (Subject Matter Experts) for their respective former companies.
Brimstone Training Course Objectives
Everyone shares the same goal: safe, efficient, and cost-effective plant operations. Our goals for our training courses include:
- Broadening the knowledge and improve the productivity of your staff;
- Sharing extensive instructor experience with attendees;
- Equipping personnel to make better operating and maintenance decisions;
- Improving troubleshooting and problem solving skills of your technical staff.
Nearly anyone can deliver a “canned” lecture; we recognize that it is far more productive to engage in interactive discussions with lots of questions and answers about the material. Our experienced instruction staff is more than prepared to provide answers to your toughest sulfur processing questions. Their many years of practical, hands-on field experience allows a unique, sensible, no-nonsense approach to training.
Brimstone’s courses include a mid-week afternoon session using ProTreat, a powerful sulfur recovery and gas treating simulation software package developed by Optimized Gas Treating. Attendees will have the opportunity to work hands-on with the software and can create models based on their own plant data or delve deeper into the behavior of these sulfur processing units based on provided case studies.
After completing any of Brimstone’s Training Courses, the attendees will be better able to:
- understand the basics and chemistry of the various sulfur processes;
- react safely and effectively to operating and mechanical problems;
- make better choices about the best hardware for the job;
- troubleshoot plant operating and mechanical problems;
- make the correct decisions about maintenance issues;
Who Will Benefit from Brimstone Operations Training?
These courses are intended for:
- plant operators
- process and project engineers
- supervisors and managers
- plant support staff (instrument, maintenance, laboratory, etc.)
- vendor company sales staff whose products and services relate to sulfur recovery
Anyone involved with your amine treating and sulfur recovery units who attends this training course will finish better able and prepared to do their jobs.
The combined experience of our instructors has helped to produce a very high-quality set of course materials that forms the basis for all our courses. All attendees of the Brimstone Training Courses receive binders with detailed, customized course materials plus a certificate of completion for the course.

“I would like to thank you for the immense success of a recent training venue that your company provided. Brimstone STS conducted a sulfur recovery unit operations training workshop at our offices this past October. The technical staff that attended were given an increased understanding of sulfur unit operations that has enabled an improved integration with our processes. The course syllabus catered to general operating knowledge as well as to specific areas of interest.
The caliber of the instructor, Mr. Elmo Nasato, was outstanding. He was able to convey technical expertise as well as answer every question. This training is highly recommended to anyone that requires detailed knowledge of sulfur recovery units.”Dennis Brunet
