Course Overview

By remote video-conferencing using Microsoft Teams, the advanced course provides an in-depth examination of the CCR Platforming unit. It is intended for experienced personnel who need a thorough technical understanding to optimize the unit. The course emphasizes process variables, unit optimization, and troubleshooting. The topics apply to atmospheric, pressurized, and CycleMax regenerators. Led by UOP process and equipment experts, lectures are combined with question-and-answer sessions and discussion is encouraged. Class participants gain a broad working knowledge of CCR Platforming that enables them to keep abreast of the evolving technology.

This course will be conducted by remote virtual instructor-led conferencing that will meet in 2 hours increments September 28 - October 8, Monday - Thursday. The sessions will be at 10 AM – 12:00 Noon and 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM Central Standard Time each day. 1 week prior to the start of the course, we will provide the Teams meeting link via E-mail.

This class is typically conducted one time a year during the third quarter of the year.
