Debottlenecking An FCC Gas Concentration Unit

Component trapping by physical carry-over of water can cause capacity bottlenecks that are not easily predicted. Component trapping in fractionation towers refers to a phenomenon wherein a component having intermediate volatility, as compared to the light and heavy key components, accumulates in a tower. This occurs when the tower top temperature is too low for the component to vaporise and leave the column along with top vapours, and the bottom temperature is too high to allow the component to condense and leave the column along with bottom liquid......
