Fluid Catalytic Cracking

Catalytic cracking involves the conversion of vacuum gas oil into lighter products. These include gas, LPG, gasoline and distillates. The products from this process are high in olefins.

Catalytic cracking can take a variety of different feedstocks. Depending on the type of unit, catalyst used and operating parameters, a different split of products can be obtained.

Typical operating parameters are temperature 500° - 540° C (reactor section), 680° - 720 °C (regenerator section) and pressure of 1 - 3 barg.
