Course Description

Fluid Catalytic Cracking - Advanced

Course Overview

This advanced course provides an in-depth technical review of FCC unit operations for experienced process engineers. Process variables, controlling the heat balance, catalyst functionality and management, process optimization, fluidization, and troubleshooting are emphasized. Participants work with leading specialists in each area to discuss the engineering considerations for revamp de-bottlenecking and current control systems.

This class is typically conducted one time a year during the third quarter of the year. For more details contact: https://uoptraining.secure.force.com/UOPTrainingContactUsPage.
