Petrotech uses advanced control solutions for raw distillation units, along with the best measurement features that save energy costs.
This unit is very important for supplying low sulfur diesel while taking advantage of the opportunistic market conditions between gasoline and diesel. Therefore, safe and effective operation of this unit is essential. Safety is also a challenge due to the high pressures of hydrogen, hydrogen sulfide and possible swelling of the reactor in this unit.
Fluid Catalytic Cracking, or FCC, is a dynamic and complex process that operates in harsh conditions where it is always dangerous to connect to the power supply and return the catalyst. By processing a significant portion of the refinery heavy oil in the FCC unit, deceleration or shutdown can directly affect the refinery’s profitability. The FCC unit is also an important source of butane and pentane olefins used in refining processes such as the alkylation unit. As a critical unit in the refinery, the optimal operation of the alkylation unit is essential.
