  • Abed After an emergency shutdown of our RFCC unit, we replaced part of the reactor refractory (13 m2) and applied a drying curve using the Regenerator Furnace, when temperature up to 460 ° C. (without injecting steam), black smoke exiting the reactor vents was observed, the reactor (Riser, stripper, reactor top) temperatures abruptly rising, the vapor line temperature reached 650 ° C, stopped the Furnace and injected the steam (stripping, liftpo), after cooling and openings of the manholes it was full of ash, with detachment of the old refractory, someone can tell me why Reactor caught fire, and why the refractory was detached.

  • Mohamed Awad Dear members of this group , i am facing an unusual problem of fouling in vacuum column top section and i am trying to develop a solution for the ongoing problem , i am looking for any advice or insights or even prior experience with similar problems , any contributions are highly welcomed . My problem is periodic formation of solid fouling in the top section of the tower despite of operating at relatively low temperatures (Tray temperature 185 C ) and low Pressures (-0.955 kgf/cm2) , i assumed that cracking or coking at this conditions is highly unlikely (correct me if i am wrong) and i assume that the problem might be caused by phase separation of asphaltenes entrapped in light hydrocarbons .... is there any way to exactly determine the problem , what kind of lab tests can be done ? any one faced similar problems in vacuum columns? Thanks for your time and consideration Best Regards
