FCC Valve Stuffing Box: From Design Best Practice to Field Troubleshooting

Presented By

Andrea Pusceddu - IMI Z&J

Conference: Valencia 2018

The stem stuffing box is one of the most critical components of an FCC valve, due the combined action of extreme temperature and erosive action of the catalyst. A large amount of operational problems can however avoided with a careful design, a precise commissioning of the system and a preemptive maintenance. This presentation will address in details the design principles, providing recommendation about the field installation and setup, and showing the latest IMI Remosa technologies in the field of the preemptive diagnostic of the stuffing box malfunction.
