Optimizing hydrogen content for FCC unit feed
UOP is the world leading provider of hydrotreating technology with more than 330 units licensed since the 1950’s, including more than 50 units licensed in the last six years.
The UOP VGO Unionfining™ process provides better quality and higher yields of FCC gasoline with lower yields of FCC light and heavy cycle oils within the FCC unit. The typical application of this technology is FCC feed pretreatment. The feeds that can be processed in the VGO Unionfining process include straight-run vacuum gas oil, heavy coker gas oil and visbreaker gas oil. This process can also be used to produce low sulfur fuel oil.
Our solutions include a full range of world-class hydrotreating catalyst solutions used in conjunction with carefully selected processing conditions to achieve your desired product properties at minimum investment and operating costs.
Mild hydrocracking can increase distillate production within your refinery complex. If you need to produce more high-quality distillate but still produce FCC feedstock, optimizing the UOP MHC Unicracking process with the FCC unit is critical.
This process can be used to increase distillate production in both new units and in revamps of existing FCC pretreating units while balancing the feed to the FCC unit and keeping it full. The feed balance and asset allocation need to be reviewed and optimized across the MHC Unicracking, FCC and Distillate Unionfining technologies for the optimum product quality and balance.
