Repsol selects Axens’ new generation of hydrocracking catalysts

Among several other customers, Spanish refiner Repsol has selected Craken catalysts for two of its hydrocracking units, one being a repeated order.

The selection has been based on pilot testing, highlighting the technical suitability of Axens’ offer.

Axens’ latest generation of hydrocracking catalysts, Craken Series, displays required fuels production and product properties, extended long-term stability and cycle lengths, the company stated in a press release. They cover a wide range of operating conditions and enable the adjustment of product yields, properties and qualities, while achieving the targeted activity.

According to Axens, Craken-D and Craken-Flex catalysts are the result of step-out improvements and have been specifically designed to convert feeds such as VGO, HCGO, DAO and other refractory feedstocks into high quality fuels, such as heavy naphtha, kerosene and diesel.

Moreover, the company stated, Craken Series catalysts are extremely tolerant to nitrogen, thanks to a highly performing bifunctional hydrotreating and cracking activity, allowing to process opportunity crudes.
