Streamlining the FCC Shutdown Process

Presented By

Sjoerd Ypma - Refined Technologies EU B.V.

Conference: Rotterdam 2019

FCC units have their own set of challenges when it comes to expediting entry into equipment. Once the reactor overhead blind is set, the clock starts ticking. This presentation contains best practice strategies to quickly move from oil out to equipment blinding along with methods and chemistries that will leave equipment clean and free of contaminants as evidenced by gas test readings for LEL, H2S and CO. Our vapor-phase cleaning and pyrophoric treatment technologies will insure safe and entry environments. In addition, key changes to the FCC shutdown procedures will allow moving from clearing to cleaning in one smooth step.
