WEBINAR: Improving FCC Economics through Computational Particle Fluid Dynamics Simulation

April 6, 2017

CPFD Software invites you to a free webinar on April 20th at 10:00 AM EDT.

Presenting material first published and presented at the 2017 AFPM Annual Meeting, Peter Blaser, CPFD Software's Vice President of Engineering Services, discusses simulation as a means to "look inside" the FCCU, addressing issues such as erosion, catalyst losses, afterburn, emissions, and catalyst circulation problems by allowing: 

  • diagnosis of the root cause of issues 
  • testing of the effect of proposed modifications prior to implementation
  • minimization of the concern of the negative impacts of change
  • pursuit of improved profitability with confidence

Many FCC units can be operated more profitably, but changes in pursuit of more efficient operation can be risky. Challenges in addressing the root cause of under-performance and fear of unforeseen impacts often result in a strong preference for the status quo. There is a better way.
