Customers who use Porocel’s actiCAT® presulfurized catalyst receive guidelines for catalyst storage, handling and loading, as well as for catalyst activation in gas or liquid phase. A pre-startup procedure review among refinery personnel, the catalyst manufacturer and Porocel Technical Support is highly recommended, especially for new customers. At the refiner’s request, a Technical Support specialist will oversee the activation, either remotely by phone, or on-site in the control room. Following the reactor
start-up, a comprehensive actiCAT® Activation Report is then prepared and provided to the refiner.
