Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is the dominant conversion process in petroleum refineries and the major contributor to qvalue addedq in the refining process. Successful operation of the FCC unit is critical to the operation of the FCC unit is critical to the operating success of most refineries. This book provides a complete and in-depth view of FCC process, design and operating principles, and the current FCC technologies available to the refining industry.Fluid Catalytic Cracking units convert a portion of this heavy material into lighter products, chiefly gasoline and middle distillates. Figure 1 -2 is a block flow diagram for a typical high conversion refinery. Crude oil is distilled in an atmospheric oranbsp;...
