SELECTING CATALYST FOR THE NEXT CHARGE

Refiners, gas processors and petrochemical plants can significantly reduce their operating costs by using regenerated catalysts and adsorbents. The cost of regenerated material is usually less than half that of fresh, but its performance can be nearly equivalent. Today’s catalysts often regenerate to an activity equivalent to that of fresh, previous generation catalysts. Rejuvenated catalysts typically have an activity of greater than 90% of fresh. Common applications for resale material include:


• Top-off after reactor skimming
• Guard beds
• Lower severity units such as NHT and some DHT
• Top bed(s) of ULSD and other DHT (layered on top of fresh catalyst)
• Short cycles (due to rapid deactivation or cut short to coincide with a major plant turnaround)
• Spare charges for critical process units
