How to eliminate erosion and abrasion caused by catalyst fines in FCCU?
This entry describes how an installed Neles erosion/abrasion resistant ceramic valve solution has helped a customer improve FCC unit performance and profitability. In this particular case eroding 2″ to 10″ valves in a refinery’s fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit were causing problems that degraded both productivity and profitability. Neles application engineers analyzed the problem and provided a solution that quickly paid itself back many times over.
LNG processing and intelligent valves for a demanding service
The demand for natural gas is increasing globally due to its clean-burning characteristics, which is especially true for producing electricity and many industries are looking into LNG as an alternative, cleaner source of energy. For LNG producers the difference between running safe, profitable plants often comes down to choosing flow control partners with the experience and knowledge to get the job done right.
FCCU in today’s refineries
Fluid Catalytic Cracking process is one the most profitable and flexible processes in today’s petroleum processing.
The full solution
It is in Neles' DNA to design and manufacture high-quality products that respond to customer demands and requirements.
Upgrading FCC-unit valve controllers without disruption
In the fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit of a large refinery built in the 1940s in the US, a variety of control valve types and brands, along with their proprietary valve controllers, had been installed over the years. This had led to production inconsistency and disruption. The unit wanted to have one type of controller with multiple bracket designs to fit the wide variety of valves in the plant.
Finding the source of all that noise
Effective aerodynamic noise reduction in pipelines and control loops has become an important consideration for many industries as it ...
Still setting the standard for soft-seated butterfly valves
While the demands for industrial soft-seated butterfly valves continue to evolve, new features and innovations are needed. At the same time, the fundamental design of the Jamesbury™ Wafer-Sphere™ butterfly valve continues to prove itself in action in many of the most demanding applications. The patented and often imitated double-offset design originated by Valmet's flow control business continues to be the industry benchmark for performance excellence.
