Course Overview

This is an advanced course that provides an in-depth examination of the CCR Platforming unit. It is intended for experienced personnel who need a thorough technical understanding to optimize the unit. The course emphasizes process variables, unit optimization, and troubleshooting. The topics apply to atmospheric, pressurized, and CycleMax regenerators. Led by UOP process and equipment experts, lectures are combined with question-and-answer sessions and discussion is encouraged. Class participants gain a broad working knowledge of CCR Platforming that enables them to keep abreast of the evolving technology.

We will be offering this course both in person and virtually. Virtual participants will log on during the live course, which meets during Central Standard Time.

1 week prior to the start of the course, we will provide the Teams meeting link via E-mail.
