If your plant has a maintenance turnaround scheduled or if your  FCCU / RFCC Main Column Bottoms filtration system is experiencing one or more of the following problems:

  • Shorter than designed on-stream life, resulting in:
    • Increased maintenance costs
    • Lower throughput
    • Increased Catalyst costs and usage
  • Downstream equipment problems resulting in:
    • Increased downtime
    • Higher operating costs
  • Compromised product quality resulting in lower revenue

Carolina Filters can help address these operating challenges by helping to solve for some of the root causes for unsatisfactory performance from FCCU Main Column Bottoms filtration:
