Converter®: FCC co-catalyst for activity enhancement
BASF produces Converter, a co-catalyst designed to boost FCC conversion. Premium Technology. Based on BASF’s commercially proven Distributed Matrix Structures™ (DMS) technology, Converter delivers activity enhancement with the added benefit of coke-selective bottoms upgrading.
Maximum Results by Design
DMS technology provides Converter with a tailored porosity allowing the diffusion of heavy hydrocarbons into the particle resulting in selective cracking. Feed pre-cracking is achieved on the selective external zeolite surface rather than on an amorphous, non-selective matrix resulting in a high gasoline yield, low coke, and low dry gas make. The combination of these matrix and zeolite technologies allows for a highly active co-catalyst with excellent coke selectivity.
The use of a co-catalyst such as Converter is a cost-effective way to quickly capture economic opportunities. Performance benefits are enjoyed at the low inventory levels typical of co-catalysts while avoiding dilution effects common with other additives or co-catalysts not designed to increase conversion.
Converter optimizes current operations by providing both activity and selectivity benefits resulting in:
▪ Improved overall profitability and/or operating flexibility without reformulating the FCC catalyst
▪ Increased activity without increasing delta coke
▪ Optimal pore-size distribution
