A major contributor to the production capacity of the modern refinery is the Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit (FCC). Small changes in the operational and mechanical performance of equipment can have a huge impact on the performance of an FCC. Understanding the impact of changes to the unit, and locating the root cause of problems is no easy task, particularly when the observed symptoms could be caused by a variety of factors. Tracerco’s Tru-ScanTM and specialist tracer techniques can be used to identify the air rate, flue gas rate, and bed-level elevation in an FCCU regenerator.
