    What is it the typical products to inject in FCC compressor and the flowrate to wash the pallets? In our case we inject LCO in small flow in order to “wash” the compressor. What kind of nozzle is used in the compressor ? What is it the size (mesh) ? In our case we are using 100 micra.

    We also replaced LCO to Heavy naphtha in the compressor washing pallets. I have read that the best FCC stream would be light naphtha. What is the recommended product to inject in the FCCU wet gas compressor ?
