FCCU main fractionators are key equipment in refinery operations. Efficient fractionation and reliable operation allows FCC units to reach cycle length between T/A with minimum financial debits and mitigate potential unplanned shutdowns or “squats” to solve mechanical problems. Examples of practical applications on FCC Main Fractionator bottom systems will be discussed.
A workgroup is a great forum for sharing Lessons Learned or Best Practices. A Subject Matter Expert speaks briefly about a particular topic. Then discussion is opened to the group.
