Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Units (FCCU) are used to increase production of gasoline and diesel blend components from gas oil and resid feedstocks. The process can be impacted by feed metal contamination, tower corrosion and exchanger fouling that will negatively impact profitability. And product value can be lost with high ash in the slurry product.
Dorf Ketal provides innovative solutions that:
- Reduce undesirable gas production and catalyst deactivation with metal passivation
- Control tower overhead corrosion and stress cracking
- Prevent fouling in slurry exchangers due to polynuclear aromatic (PNA) compounds and catalyst ash
- Improve profitability by lowering slurry ash content to meet the specifications for the carbon black feedstock market
