Desulphurization of crude oil is an important process used in a petroleum refinery to reduce the sulphur concentration and production of fuel products such as gasoline, jet fuel, kerosene, diesel and heating oil. The operating and geometrical parameters are evaluated in this paper. Therefore, the gained results can be interesting for related industries and can be applicable in process optimization. Results show the lowest amount of index in process is obtained at height higher than 6 cm, between 7 cm and 8 cm, for the light and mid-range oil, respectively.
