Use of non-abrasive ceramic materials in the FCCU

Use of non-abrasive ceramic materials in the FCCU

Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) technology has been a part of the petroleum industry since it was introduced in the US in 1942 to help feed the voracious appetite of the first truly mechanised war effort. It remains one of the most important conversion processes used in petroleum refineries today. This process is widely used to convert the high molecular weight hydrocarbon fractions of petroleum crude oils to more valuable gasoline, olefins, and other products. The FCC process vaporises and breaks the molecules of the long chain hydrocarbons into much shorter molecules by contacting the feedstock, at high temperature and moderate pressure, with a catalyst......
