Refining Process Services has perfected the art of reactor effluent overhead line sampling (often called Reaction Mix Sampling or RMS) so that the difficult task of accurately determining yields from your FCC operat ion can be overcome. The RMS test procedure eliminates the need to consider extraneous streams or rely on product meters when calculating FCC product yields, thus enhancing the accuracy of the data. This technique is ideal for evaluating the effects of feed, catalyst, process and hardware changes. We can send our team of specialists to your site to provide your personnel with the equipment and training necessary to perform this technique on their own. We have evaluated the impact of the following proc ess and revamp changes through the use of the RMS technique. The technique has been modified and improved so that samples can be withdrawn from FCC risers, riser outlet zones, reactors and strippers.
1. Determine Characteristics Of FCC Operation Before And After Major Revamps
2. Determine FCC Yield Structure Required To Verify Performance Guarantees On New FCC Units
3. Impact Of FCC Feedstock Changes
4. Effect Of FCC Operating Variable Changes Such As Increasing Riser Outlet Temperature
5. Simultaneous Sampling Of Riser Outlet And Reactor Effluent Line To Determine Efficiency Of Catalyst/Oil Disengaging
6. Evaluate Stripper Performance
7. Impact Of Adding Coker Gas Oil To FCC Feed
8. Impact Of Adding Feed Diluents To The FCCU (e.g. Coker Naphtha)-
9. Sampling From Riser To Determine Effectiveness of Oil/Catalyst Mixing
10. Effect of Adding More Resid To The Feed
Reaction Mix Sampling Test Runs have been performed at forty-five different refining locations around the world, including refineries in Australia, Japan, South Africa, and Europe.
