Highest Densicat® loading rate - PETROVAL

Highest Densicat® loading rate - PETROVAL

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.

Dense loading and reactor pressure drop

Dense loading and reactor pressure drop

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%.
