    What is the key properties for the torch oil?
    Can we use any light diesel/Light Cycle oil type hydrocarbon as a torch oil? if not…what is the reason?
    If our DFAH is not able to rise the temperature up to 350 Deg C. Can we line up torch oil (Like LCO/LDO etc…)

    LCO could be used as torch oil. Fresh feed (VGO) is other alternative. We have an FCC unit operating at very low severity that operated in the past burning torch oil in the regenerator in a routine basis. We used both LCO and fresh feed (Mild Hydrocracker residue) as torch oil.
    Some important properties you may consider for torch oil are calorific power (the higher calorific value, the lower torch oil rate would be needed) and metal content
