All FCC units, no matter when they were built, eventually require upgrades to various technology features to stay competitive. Key features include feed nozzles, riser termination systems, stripper design, regenerator air and catalyst distribution, and catalyst coolers in extreme cases. The presentation will consider each of these features along with their advantages and when the FCC operator should consider upgrades. Case studies are presented along with the basis for the revamps.
