  • 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. ...

  • Process Heaters

    The term ‘process heater’ is defined as any process plant unit that uses a controlled/monitored flame to heat process gas or liquid streams. Similar units operating at higher temperatures are also used, for example on ethylene production plants, to produce thermal breakdown (‘cracking’) of hydrocarbon process streams — generally referred to as ‘thermal crackers’. Both units are in widespread use on refinery and petrochemical plants and are major consumers of fuel ...
