FCC Reactor & Regenerator Cyclones

FCC Reactor & Regenerator Cyclones

  • Ducon works with major licensors of FCC processes: UoP, Exxonmobil, Technip, KBR, Shell, CB&I, Axens, Foster Wheeler and others.
  • Collection efficiency maximized: leading supplier of FCC catalyst recovery cyclones since 1970's
  • Reactor, Regenerator, Tertiary vessel and fourth stage cyclones
  • Supply of complete Reactor & Regenerator cyclones, Hanger systems,Tertiary Plenums, Diplegs and dipleg valves with plenums fabricated complete with internals
  • Ducon Dust hopper and lined dipleg designs enhance catalyst discharge while decreasing erosion
  • Reactor Cyclones configuration can be directly attached to the riser with a second stage following in a closed or open coupled system. In single stage configuration cyclones are preceded by a riser termination device.
  • Ducon provides performance evaluation & simulation of existing cyclones
  • High efficiency at low pressure drops with enhanced aspect ratio
  • Ducon Computer programs provide: Entrainment, catalyst loss, pressure drop & optimal cyclone geometry

Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC)

Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) is one of the most important refinery processes as it converts high-boiling, high-molecular weight hydrocarbon fractions of petroleum crude oils to more valuable gasoline, olefinic gases, and other products. Residue fluid catalytic cracking is the primary technology to upgrade to light products from heavy feed stocks. To ensure oil refineries work efficiently with reduced operating costs and remain competitive our expertise in designing highly efficient RFCC cyclone systems is needed.

Ducon has an ongoing record of hundreds of successful operating FCC cyclone installations since the 1970's that operate reliably and maintenance free for years. Ducon secured numerous FCC Cyclone Separator technology patents during the 1970's and 1980's. Ducon is a recognized supplier to the world's refineries. Through expert manufacturing, proven technologies, and innovative engineering, on-time delivery and proven technologies Ducon can ensure customer satisfaction. Ducon FCC Cyclones achieves over 99.9% catalyst collection efficiencies for particles smaller than 5 microns and is available in several design configurations.
