Because the fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) is a complex and difficult process to operate, a small improvement in the process can result in significant gain. In 1989, 40% of gasoline blend stocks in the US were produced from the FCCU. In addition to the large throughput, the FCCU is one of the most complex process units with large catalytic reactions, catalyst regeneration, fractionation and separation equipment. Options to improve FCCU performance include catalyst selection, operating… CONTINUE READING
