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°).
The objective of PETROVAL’s Infrared expert team is to provide instantaneous technical feedback by highlighting the potential limitations identified on the furnace.

Petroval recently recorded the highest dense loading rate ever done with its proprietary Densicat® technology: 36 MT/h.
Downstream the preheat train – where PETROVAL tube inserts can be installed in heat exchangers – the unit Heater is another potential bottleneck for a unit.
Since dense loading reduces the void space within a catalyst bed, it is unavoidable that the bed pressure drop (dP) will increase. This increase is quite significant, of the order of about 80%.
