Collaborating with Grace to combat iron poisoning in the FCCU

The growth in domestic crude production, specifically tight oils, mean new challenges for refiners. A number of crudes from newly developed fields have elevated levels of iron. Now, iron poisoning in the FCCU, once an isolated phenomena when processing opportunity crudes is impacting the profitability of more operations.

Even with dynamic global crude prices, processing of domestic shale oils remains a part of the refining landscape in many regions. Grace has a long history of partnering with customers to turn challenges like these into solutions for the industry.  

Find out more about how Grace worked with a North American refiner​y to:
* manage unconventional contaminant metals;​​
* minimize the consequences those metals can have on FCC unit operation;
* combat loss in fuels selectivity, unstable circulation, and reduced bottom-of-the-barrel conversion; and
* avoid lower margins across the FCCU.
