FCU Catalyst Handling System

Valdes Engineering Company provided engineering services to upgrade the catalyst handling system for two Fluidized Catalytic Cracking units at a major Midwestern refinery. The project included the installation of new bag house systems to comply with opacity control regulations, a new catalyst truck loading and railcar loading system, and new catalyst transporters to inject catalyst into the Regenerator. New piping systems included replacement of the 1200ºF catalyst withdrawal system and all associated catalyst transfer lines.

Valdes was responsible for the entire engineering effort for this project, from early front end planning through procurement, detail engineering, and construction support. High Definition Laser Scanning was utilized effectively on this job. The total installed cost (TIC) of this facility was approximately $25 million.
