Join us for this free webinar. 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
