Fluid Catalytic Cracking Handbook, Fourth Edition has been fully updated to provide the most valuable guidance for engineers to enable them to maximize the profitability and reliability of fluid catalytic cracking operations. This practical resource covers all stages of FCC including the design, operation, troubleshooting and optimization of FCC facilities, and the valuable inclusion of chapters on ?FCC Main Fractionator and Gas Plant? and ?Process Engineering Tools? provide engineers with the relevant tools to fully optimize processes and operations.

This book presents technologies and processes that will improve the profitability and reliability of FCC units, and this new edition benefits from the inclusion of a dedicated chapter on ?Lesson?s learned? based on Mr. Sadeghbeigi?s 30 years of field experience and troubleshooting cases carried out. Fluid Catalytic Cracking Handbook provides a valuable reference for both experienced engineers as a quick reference, and gives those who are developing their skills and knowledge trusted information that will help them succeed in their projects.
