Who Should Attend

You are new to the UOP FCC unit and need to know how to optimize the operation of the unit. You will start at the beginning by discussing how the UOP FCC unit fits into the overall refinery processing scheme, how it may process various feedstocks, how product selectivity can be controlled, and FCC catalyst fluidization basics. Participants will discuss process flow, process control, equipment, how to calculate the heat balance, and catalyst management. The course emphasizes the technology aspects of the UOP FCC unit and includes important process calculations that can be used to troubleshoot FCC problems, including cyclone velocities, superficial velocities, distributor pressure drops and more. Participants will have the opportunity to step through procedures using UOP’s FCC Simulator. Through lecture, team work, and exercises, participants will gain the fundamentals to troubleshoot common FCC Unit issues.

Attendance is limited to UOP license holders.

The Course Duration is (in Days): 5.0
