CATFLOW™

Unloading Technologies
LOGO - CATFLOW

In addition to dense loading activities, CATFLOW™ is a technology developed and patented by Petroval to unload a reactor catalyst bed via a horizontal dump nozzle in the absence of a sloped dump nozzle (45°).

Safety

No inert entry of personnel during catalyst free-flow unloading.

The CATFLOW™ was developed by petroval's engineers with the objective to unload the catalyst without workers intervening inside the reactor.

Also, the CATFLOW™ reduces the risk of air entry and self-ignition of catalyst. This unloading method permits to achieve a high level of safety on site.

Quality

Thanks to the free flowing of catalyst, the CATFLOW™ limits the catalyst breakage and attrition, and improves the quantity and quality of the recovered catalyst. The CATFLOW™ can also help to segregate beds of catalyst, which could have an impact on the value for recycling.
