UltraCAT® Preactivation

 
  • Porocel’s UltraCAT® Preactivation technology converts metal oxides to metal sulfides that require inert loading and no further activation in the unit, resulting in a fully preactivated catalyst.

 

  • UltraCAT preactivation makes your hydrotreating unit start-up simpler, faster, and safer than ever before!

 

 

  • UltraCAT preactivation is optimized for a broad range of hydrotreating catalysts:

 

o   Applicable on all hydrotreating applications, such as Naphtha, Kerosene, Gasoil, ULSD, FCC pretreat and Lube oil

o   Formulated to provide all the advantages of actiCAT Shield® (immediate introduction of cracked feeds following start-up)

o   The UltraCAT preactivation service is available from both Catalyst Recovery Singapore and Catalyst Recovery of Louisiana. Additional capabilities are planned for Catalyst Recovery Europe in late 2020. 

 

 

  • UltraCAT technology offers many advantages compared to in-situ sulfiding activation, including:
