FCC Catalyst Withdrawal and Special Valve Solutions

Presented By

Rudy Repellin - Guichon Valves

Conference: Budapest 2017

Each refinery in the world is fighting with catalyst requirements. Most of the devices installed on FCC units are exposed to severe conditions: abrasion, erosion, cavitation, high temperature, pressure, and so on… These requirements are also true on catalyst withdrawal and sampling lines. Even on those small lines, the technical challenges are huge and any malfunction can affect the global process performance, safety, and reliability.

Backed with more than 35 years of experience in catalyst application and tight cooperation with Axens/IFP Group, Guichon has been developing specific technologies to improve performance and safety on catalyst draw-off and sampling systems.

Guichon engineers are pleased to share their knowledge and operational advice during this presentation. Technical tricks will be shared to increase the global process, performance, safety, reliability, and lifetime.
