Tracerco Diagnostics™ FCCU study

What information will a Tracerco Diagnostics™ FCCU study provide me? Tracerco has performed hundreds of FCCU studies worldwide, to help diagnose operating problems, and improve the performance of all major components of FCC units. These technologies are used to measure the velocity, distribution and residence time of the catalyst, or vapour phase, through any part of the system, as well as density profiles within vessels. This includes testing to determine the efficiency of riser termination devices, cyclones or distribution devices. Each project is performed online and customised to provide the information needed to optimise or troubleshoot your specific process.

Which pieces of equipment in an FCC unit canTracerco conduct studies on?
A typical Tracerco Diagnostics™ FCCU study can be conducted on any or all parts of the FCC including:
• Reactor riser
• Reactor
• Reactor stripping section
• Regenerator
• Spent catalyst and regenerated catalyst standpipes

  • Tracerco Diagnostics™ Distribution study - FCC stripper

    Uniform distribution of catalyst and steam in a stripper is critical to achieve high stripping efficiency (less carry-down of hydrocarbon products from reactor to regenerator). A failure to effectively remove hydrocarbon from the catalyst will result in a loss of product, lower throughput, and lower ...
