Technology Introduction: The Next Generation of FCC Feed Injectors
15 September 2021

Sponsor: Lummus

As fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) feed injection is a significant element in reaching targeted yields within the FCC unit, the feed injectors themselves are a lynchpin in delivering the desired performance. Many factors have driven the continual evolution of feed injection technology to effectively and efficiently vaporize the FCC feedstock and quickly quench the hot regenerated catalyst in the reaction zone when the two come into contact.

Join us for a virtual introduction as Lummus Technology launches the latest innovation in FCC feed injectors. This webcast will highlight how refiners can achieve improved yield performance from faster feedstock vaporization, while addressing operational challenges in areas such as feed circuit hydraulics, steam usage and the cost of retrofitting hardware.

Speeding Up the Engineering from Concept to Design
4 August 2021

Sponsor: Siemens

Within an environment which is increasingly competitive and complex, projects within process industries are under scrutiny. About 80 percent of the total cost of a plant project is determined during the process design phase, which is why a reliable set of engineering deliverables and cost estimations at this stage is essential. 

The value of streamlined business processes and standardized designs is typically underestimated, but it is key for reduce CAPEX. Chevron Lummus has achieved significant benefits by standardizing their pre-FEED projects design packages.

Join our webinar and learn how standardized designs since FEED phase actually impact a project and reduces CAPEX and what was the approach Chevron Lummus has applied.

Principles of Liquid Sampling
28 July 2021

Sponsor: Swagelok

Process fluid sampling plays a critical role in maintaining accurate, profitable industrial processes. Pulling liquid samples is often necessary for validating process conditions, ensuring end products are up to specification, and evaluating environmental emissions. Grab sampling—also called spot sampling, laboratory sampling, field sampling, or closed-loop sampling—is a useful way retrieve these samples, but it can be challenging to execute correctly.

Learn what it takes for operators and technicians to perform liquid grab sampling correctly in our upcoming webinar on July 28. Find out how to avoid the small errors can negatively impact sample representativeness and production efficiency, driving up operating costs. Walk away with a better understanding of:

  • The value of using sample bottles vs. sample cylinders
  • How to maintain a standard liquid sampling process
  • The importance of properly designed sample panels
