Squeeze more value out of your FCC gasoline
As sulfur legislations tighten, it becomes more difficult for refiners to meet the specifications from their FCC gasoline post-treatment units. Particularly the octane number poses challenges, since some olefins are simultaneously being hydrogenated. The consequent loss of octane often prevents the refineries from achieving maximum value.
Topsoe’s series of HyOctane™ catalysts are specifically developed for all steps in FCC gasoline post-treatment applications. Their optimized activity and selectivity enable removal of sulfur to ultra-low levels while retaining high octane numbers, allowing a stable, flexible, and profitable production of high-quality gasoline.
Better performance through optimized HDS activity
It has been industrially proven that units using HyOctane™ catalysts experience a significantly improved hydrodesulfurization (HDS) activity. This leads to improved performance in the FCC gasoline post-treatment unit and more attractive product properties.
High stability achieved through years of research
The HyOctane™ catalysts build on Topsoe’s advanced preparation technologies and exhibit stable performance throughout the entire catalyst cycle. The high-activity catalysts enable operation with extended cycle lenghts and/or increased throughput.
High selectivity ensures minimum octane loss
The intelligent design of the HyOctane™ catalysts has increased the selectivity towards sulfur compound conversion, while minimizing mono-olefin hydrogenation. This ensures that a high octane number is maintained in the final gasoline product.
Reduced gas formation resulting in high naphtha yield
More than 99.9 wt% naphtha yield can be obtained with the HyOctane™ catalysts. The gas formation is extremely low across the HyOctane™
catalysts, resulting in an insignificant change in Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP).
